What happened to the Virus Chest in the new version 11.1.2241? Can't find it anywhere...

Or right click the avast tray icon and select virus chest.

Running the latest version but when I do a manual Program update, I get the following:

If I select the update under Essential update, I get the following:

This bug has been there since the last Beta version of Avast 2016.

(11-5-15)
ya , i have this bug also . but my avast version is the final version as of yesterday the 3rd.
i did a video screen recording of it .
https://youtu.be/1X-cEGCQymA

i hope they get it fixed

Hi. You need to click on "Update" under the heading of "Essential Update" NOT "Essential update + internet security. My best guess is that this is a bug, because I don't use beta version at all. After you click on udpate it will just check if you have/don't have the latest version

 :P we know where to click, we clicked in the right spot, this is a bug, now please have it fixed ,

Thanks. Invalid certificate bug is now fixed. Avast doesn't block wikipedia, cdburnerxp sites and I don't have to disable https scanning.

Thanks. The previous versions had serious compatibility issues with XP, Vista, and Win10.

Anyone cares to share their experiences with Vista 32 and 2241 (Avast 2016, the latest version)? I am afraid to install it as i had a terrible time with the preceding 2 versions. Had to roll back to 2218.

Thanks for sharing.

Like just about any new feature, there seem to be major bugs in the new Password thing.  After supposedly setting it up properly for Firefox, including deleting the browser's saved passwords and removing permission for Firefox to save new entries, on only one occasion did it properly provide a good new password.  And the box where it offers to do so often won't permit any entry, but instead shows a number in a circle -- on one occasion it actually changed my user-name instead of the password.  :o

After a few hours the Password icon mysteriously disappeared from the Firefox toolbar and I was totally unable to access it.

I suspect the problem may tie in with the almost simultaneous update of Firefox (to 42.0) and an unexpected incompatibility between the new versions of each.  I've mostly recovered by disabling the Passwords extension (avast still shows it as integrated with the browser, interestingly) and restoring a backup profile, which at least gives me most of my old passwords back into Firefox.  Still can't get logged into Amazon or my ISP's customer service ("incorrect" username-password combo in both cases), although the latter will on request do the cleanup from their end.
Interesting situation with the toolbar icon. It it tested to work well with both Firefox 41 and 42 under normal circumstances. Could it have happened that the add-on got uninstalled or disabled during the update to 42?

Regarding the "good new passwords", it might be just a different expectation from some feature. It would be great if you could provide screenshots.
Sorry, no screenshots available ... I just checked FF add-ons, and both Passwords and SafePrice extensions are showing as installed but disabled, and considering I seem to have everything else working properly again, I'm gonna leave them that way for now.

It's a shame, I'm one of the unfortunates who has to re-use the same password everywhere (brain injury 20 years ago would make it impossible to remember good but different passwords), and a properly working password manager would have been the ideal solution.  I take it that unless and until someone else can replicate my problem, I can't hope for a fix?  I haven't as yet tried any of the 3rd-party managers, and was delighted -- temporarily, unfortunately -- to see it become available in avast, which I've happily used for maybe 15 years now.

It was mentioned in the Beta 4 release that NG is not installed by default in the free version now.

.... and here something positive:
The blocking of some Chinese websites by "Secure DNS" is now history on my system with the final release .2241!
That also means there is a difference between the versions ".2241 RC3" and ".2241 Final".   :o

And NG sandbox is not working. AGAIN. Everything checked, but there was no NG generating process and there is no secure sandbox process running. That's really annoying that some critical feature just out of the blue doesn't get installed or work even though it is selected (and has worked 2 weeks ago on the exact same system). Ugh!?!?!
