Hi! i just wanted to confirm something about the Virus Chest in the taskbar after you right click the Avast UI like this:



My concern is that i put password protection on all PROTECTED AREAS including Virus Chest Control but when i click the Virus Chest option in the taskbar,i can access the Virus Chest Control directly without it asking for any password at all.Is it just me or someone out there has the same problem? Password protections are working on all protected areas except this Virus Chest option from the taskbar. Thanks.

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.

Time spent on reconnaissance is seldom wasted ;D

Thanks Steven!

@ craigb
always do only custom install for all software when available.
@anyone
anyone know needed system specs for ng in avast 2016? maybe need more than 4 gigs memory on 64 bit system or processor speed in excess of 1.8 gig?
have reset all services to defaults and restored most settings to default. even ran in place repair install. sfc and chkdsk normal. also tried avast repair and clean installed again. i give up for now. phooey!!!

The program version is 11.01.2241. I can not see and to use Software Update. Although it is On, under tools I can not see it, so I can not use it. How can I do?

It is tucked away under the scan heading now as you are scanning for outdated software :)

For people concerned about the freezing problems on Vista in previous versions:

I bit the bullet and installed this version this morning. System has been running for 10 hours straight and no problems so far. Before, my computer would freeze after not even 15 minutes of browsing the internet, so I believe the issue is finally solved. I'm guessing it was thanks to the improved Web Shield Https scanning mentioned in the OP.

If I run into a problem, I'll be sure to post. If I don't post again in the next 48 hours, then consider everything is fine.

@ paranoid
yes, i did that too,although i seem to remember that requirement was dropped some time ago. i also notice no mention of ng or secure virtual machines on avast .com home page or in faq section of support. only brief mention of avast sandbox. still hoping to learn system requirements to be offered secure virtual machines.
is anyone offered it for install on clean install or in change menu after clean install.
really is not that big of a deal, but if available would rather to have it installed & working.
i see rejzor having problems with it also.
can a dev please reply with appropriate requirements?

thanks though for your thoughts,
skinnypops
