Hi everyone,

What's new:

- Improved Anti-Phishing prevents you from falling victim to scams and fake sites (no browser extension needed!)

- New standalone Avast Cleanup Premium product with improved cleaning (to be rolled out in stages)

- We now recommend scanning for hidden network threats when you first connect to a new network

- Our systray icon now shows when you have a security notification

-  Improved threat detections are now more visible and more informative about threats



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):

Thanks for update.
- GUI opening is slower then previous version.
- Scanning files inside Virus Chest still not working.
- Detection Pop-up is now delayed from detection sound.
- Some detections are not marked as "NEW" in notification center/TRAY.

After updating Avast Free Anti-Virus on August 31, 2017, browsers stopped (Internet Explorer and Mozilla). I delete Avast - the browser is started. I put Avast - again the browsers do not start.

working on fix

What the hell changed between beta version 17.6.2310 and the same version number of the regular release (I hate this version number remaining the same on release), that it managed to break something that wasn't broken in the 17.6.2310 beta release.   

I'm only glad that I didn't update this win10 laptop as I thought this was a beta release.  I only test betas on my XP Pro desktop, so I ignored the program update notification as I don't allow the Program to update automatically.

oh,and btw, the premier installer is the same from 18/7 (17.5)

I hope this version does something about the HUGE number of false positives and that it will actually detect REAL viruses.
I get at least once a day one of those javascript obfuscated viruses and avast lets them ALL through without so much as a warning. But god forbid I try to install a LEGITIMATE, CLEAN program, then all kinds of alarms go off, with BOGUS detections, (filerep: malware, Susp, Malware.gen. idp. generic and similar.ALL FALSE POSITIVES). I'm sick of this. avast used to be one of the best AVs around, now it's turned into crap.

Unable to add additional language (English).

Error (HTTP error) during configuration change of the product :

I guess there is some connection problem or something.

Is it normal that Avast settings always get restored after program update? I've tried reinstalling it but it's always the same. When updating programs, settings are always getting back to default.

No, it's not normal. My settings all remained intact.

Wasn't there supposed to be a blue dot on the avast tray icon for notifications?

- GUI opening is slower then previous version.

GUI is really loading much slower. Showing empty dots and frames here for a few seconds too until full GUI appears. Seing these for the first time on this GUI.

That's actually intentional - Avast is using a new preloader for the UI, Opening the UI should be quicker, but without real data which will then load after 1-2 seconds.

Regarding Avast now offering older program version for update - should be fixed when all the CDN/servers have been updated with the latest version.
