This nonsense HAS TO STOP. The only time System Restore might save you from lengthy problem solving and avast! creates one by carelessly deleting restore points and forcing it to 3%.

Hi. We investigated your problem and there is no possibility to delete system restore points by any software (not even avast). Restore points are just hidden, You need to check "Show more restore points".

3% was set by NG and should be fixed in Release.

If you set the store size to a lower number than it previously was, the older restore points that don't fit in anymore get deleted automatically. If the number was significantly higher than 3% previously, you can lose a lot of restore points.

Also, why the hell I can't even use Browser Protection plugin in Firefox 42 64bit (it's officially released now)? It just doesn't even offer me to add it and there is no way in adding it myself. Checked the folder in avast! and there are jjust bunch files that I can't actualyl connect to the browser itself manually.

I'm not even sure if avast supports firefox 64 bit yet - are you getting its traffic monitored by the web shield ?

Everything works EXACTLY the same on 64bit version as it does in 32bit version. Except avast! browser protection plugin. And this is the exact reason why I hate 3rd party injected plugins. They never work, constantly break when they do and are just so annoying that I get fed up with them and remove them entirely.

Filehippo shows an official release here:

Do we have to trust Filehippo? I can see no official announcement about the release nor other RC.

Lets put it this way the build number doesn't appear to be final (11.1.0.210) as it is lower than the current RC2 build ???
