Antiransomware feature should be also in Free version, but limited to Photos and Documents only where IS/Premier would allow you to protect any folder you want. This way you still give some basic protection, but not all of it.

Interesting suggestion Boris, that I can support :)

There is a problem with the layout of notification toaster and localization, see attached image.
One of the text string is too long, resulting overlap into other texts.

I have something odd to report. I can't say for sure, but seems automatic updating is broken for me?
I remember the same thing happened 2 days ago or was it yesterday. Database was based on 9th of June when I opened updater and updated it.

Today same thing - it's already 13th and my database was 11-0

Could it have something to do with the fact that I set update interval to 180 minutes? I'll surely observe this closely for next days. FYI, computer has been running for many many hours straight and has been restarted daily.

I'm pretty sure update from 17060900 to 17061100 was initiated by me.
As was 17061100 to 17061202 (just minutes ago as I made this post).

Hi Lord_Ami :)

No problems with automatic updates in the Beta here.
Virus update history :

https://www.avast.com/virus-update-history

An update interval of 180 minutes can't be the problem, as you can set it as low as 20 minutes.
Lower update interval settings will be ignored, and executed as 20 minutes intervals afaik.

Have you tried a repair of Avast ?

Yeah I have the same idea about it... settings should not change this. However, it might be one of the possible cause of this "lag" behind updates (read: changing update interval).

Going to repair after checking once more if it auto-updates.

VPS update intervals are irrelevant. We have Streaming Updates which are delivered what, every 3 minutes? It just doesn't matter anymore for regular VPS updates.

VPS updates are also used to push small software updates.

Could be, could be. I just wanted to share more info on my settings :) Sometimes it may give developers clue (for example:if changing interval indeed breaks updates). Otherwise I would just "whine" without providing any meaningful information. At least that's what I think. It's always good to provide changes you've made to the settings.

Anyways, made complete reinstall and now it seems to work.

Mine is set for 120 and no problems with updates.
