HIPS will hopefully come with release 2 for DeepScreen it could be an amazing feature for protection if it would scan much more files,
have better performance and not a so big footprint on the harddrive.

Everything is OK here with 'over the top' installation except additional language is not preserved AGAIN.

Just installed the latest version and no issues to report.

Great job.

I've just looked over the statistics and the firewall stats are not showing anything - even though it says it's running.

A repair and clean install have not fixed it.

Anyone got the same issue?

There is a bug in avast setup which unfortunately won't install NG on Win10 (at least on Win10 10568, not sure with old 10240 build).

Oh cmon, seriously? I was just about to re-install avast! because of NG and now this? *sigh* So, if I have Windows 10, even if I check Secure VM, it won't get installed?
