The lock on the Webcam Shield, indicating a paid product, was missing right after the update.
It appeared after I selected it and received the message that it was a paid option and did I want to upgrade.  :(

Detection via web shield produces multiple/countless pop-ups.

My word, I would have expected this to have been caught as QA and or Alpha testing.

Thankfully my Windows 7 Test Machine too slow to display too many of the Webshield alerts lol,  but did display 2 on that test page lol.    Would test on faster Windows 10 Desktop, but prefer testing on less used PC in case of any major issues,  debating what to do with my old AMD FX system as well, possibly might convert that to secondary Windows 10 System

Have you had any memory leak issues with this release? Avast used 2 GB of RAM and used 25% of my CPU even when disabled.

I will try to reproduce the problem.

Nope, no such issues here.

How do I recover a quarantined file? ... I only have the option "delete" and "lower level" ... :(

I used "lower level" but the file could not be recovered ....

I have the french version of the antivirus with two options on the file -> DELETE and RESTORE...
I made a file restore but it deleted me ... The file is no longer in the quarantine area. :)

The French translation is bad ... In English it is mentioned "restore" but in the French version it is written "niveau inférieur (lower level in english)" any sense. Restore in french it's "Restaurer" ....
Same error in the documentation avast ...

https://support.avast.com/fr-fr/article/21/


"Restaurer" and no "niveau inférieur (lower version)"...
