Updated via the GUI in two different computers with same issue. After the restart, many startup services and programs do not load with an error window. The main interface of avast do not load and the computer behaves unusable. Both computers are old ones, one with athlonX2, 4G ram, and another phenomIIx4 with 8G ram. Restored to old image and i will wait for a new release.
obs: both computer with Comodo Firewall.
obs2: again the same problem. The last major software upgrade last years have the same issue. Thinking in stop using avast..................

1. Default settings of Behavior Shield diference Help <-> real settings.

Behaviour Shield : Avast - Settings - Components - Behaviour Shield - Customise

- The default setting is Automatically move known threads to Chest and the best option for Novice/Average users.

- The setting Always ask is an option for Advanced users, who understand what they are doing.


2. Strange graphic symbol in subscription window.

I don't have that problem :-\

Greetz, Red.

It is part of Smart Scan and will notify you only if it detects a bad addon.

I haven't installed it right now, but it should be under Protection, IIRC.

Only the settings for it are there. It shows any bad addons (if found) after smart scan.

That is very stupid since I use only Quick Scan. I guess I'll uninstall it.

Throughout the beta i couldn't really understand why the devs kept quick scan alongside the smart scan. Two things which are the same are useless IMO. The check for viruses of Smart Scan is the same as quick scan and is some less click away. If you don't want to scan for other things than viruses, click on Settings -> General -> Smart Scan and you will find options to select exactly what you want per your needs. :)

I don't think that Quick Scan and Smart Scan are the same. I believe I've seen something about that in some post by Rejzor.

With the new version all BattleNet Games crashed at start (WoW, Diablo, HotS etc)

I figured out its the Behavior Shield, with deactivated Shield all games run fine. Maybe its a "Launcher-thing" ? A program starts a program ?

Could be related. You can add Behavior Shield exclusions via Settings - Components - Behavior Shield (customize) - Exclusions.

Some games may see Behavior Shield as "debugger". Adding exclusion should work - did for me (different game).
