NEW: Avast 17.2.2288
« on: February 27, 2017, 02:38:32 PM »
Good news, everyone!

New Avast Antivirus version is here (17.2.2288). This version doesn't introduce any new features, rather fixes some of the most critical issues that appeared on the previous version

What's fixed:

- not working User interface after update
- problems on Windows Vista after update
- issues with SecureLine license after update
- conflict with Comodo firewall
- installation of web extensions on 64-bit version of Firefox
- problems with opening Avast UI after installation
- security issue in SafeZone browser banking mode

How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program

2. Or you can download and install from here

Online installers (recommended):

This release is stable and I don't see any major issues with it.

It would be nice if you could improve the speed of how fast the UI loads.

I suppose he/she is trying to say the file is "copied" not "moved" to the virus chest.
I think it is default behavior if an user intentionally adds files to the virus chest.

I downloaded the files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe and installed it over the top of the last avast beta version also 17.2.2288.

It is identical (using about avast) to the last beta in that both the version number and build number. There must surely have been changes to take account of the known issues in the last beta release.

Consequent to that installation I haven't yet been asked to reboot as I would expect on a 'program update' perhaps because it too doesn't see it has changed ???

I was intermittently getting slow browsing speeds on certain (Google?) websites.
For example: Google search would not load, Youtube loads, but videos do not, Adsense banners on other sites do not load.
I have disabled web shield and since then did not experience this problem anymore, but it requires more time to test, it may be a coincidence.

Yes i mean it
yes it is, as the file is not detected it is only a copy that is moved

That's weird, I just did an install over the top and I don't have the BETA branding. But I find other things very strange as to why this regular release has the same version and build number as the last beta version.
