After running the beta for a while I got a second (silent..!!) reboot request.
Micro Update maybe... ;)
As it also happened with 2297, it would be a big coincidence.

I have one system that after a second reboot request became the Beta version of Avast. This computer has never used the beta version. ???

Is this ransomware shield similar to bitdefender?

As I said there have been times, seen in these forums, when the first instance of a hidden/undetected piece of malware was the presence of outgoing spam mails.

If the user has no email client, then no resources would be consumed, so there really no mega gain of not having the shield active. Not to mention the options given in a custom install, minimal install. Plus there are a number of components that I would suggest that could well be removed as I wouldn't consider them security related.

Also, I'd say that this discussion is OT here, as it isn't directly related to the latest beta.

When I was installing avast! Premier BETA, I've noticed Anti-Ransomware Shield is already listed in components page, but not activated in the main interface yet.

I wonder what's the purpose of 3 Shield switches under "Main UI -> Protection - Antivirus" when there are so many shields now that aren't listed there. It's kind of pointless and should just be removed entirely. We have to rely on Components menu for everything anyway, why clutter Antivirus page with it? Makes no sense.

Yes.Anti-ransomware Shield is already listed in components page, but not in setting components list thats makes no sence and Avast behavior shield and anti-ransomware description are same. ???

There seems to be small graphical "glitch" when doing right click on icon - Registration information.

Both Update and Registration information are selected via this shortcut.

@Lord_Ami,
For me, doing a right click does nothing. Left click selects the selected topic ???
