Since you can't restore something detected by Behavior Shield,
would it be safer to turn the shield Off till that problem has been solved ???

What baffles me a bit more is how such bugs even come into existence during the development. I mean, such problems shouldn't ever even come to a public BETA version.

I'm currently working with Avast to find out why the Behavior Shield doesn't start when Avast starts.
So unless I turn it on manually, I don't have to worry about it catching anything. :)

ERRO: avastui.exe a partir das 12h50, Brasil, horário de verão, 08 de novembro de 2017. Reiniciei o desktop windows 8.1 64 bits e suponho que esse erro decorra de alguma atualização automática do Avast...  :( Tentei remover com Revo Uninstaller. O programa desapareceu da lista do Revo, mas continua no computador. Tentei reinstalar mas a mensagem de erro aparece quando aciono o executável do avast.

I'd suggest to set it to "ask" instead.

Thanks for the new beta. :)

Known Issues
  • Malware detected by Behavioral Shield cannot be restored
This reminds me old Network shield, its scan could not be excluded for a long time.
I can understand this kind of things may happen when structurally different components are merged, but still, should be fixed as soon as possible.

BTW with previous beta WebCam shield does not work for me, I'll see what happens with this new beta...

Have you ever run a beta version ?
If so it remains on the beta channel so when a beta is released it would install it unless you had Program Updates to Manual or Ask when an update is available.

I'm on the beta channel and the current beta is sitting awaiting my pleasure (I have it set to Manual Update). You would get a Notification in the UI Notification area (Bell icon).
