Regarding Smart-Scan, same as reported in a prior beta.

Add "Sensitive Data Scan" to the list, it doesn't show up either.

Good decision to add Behavior Shield to the minimal installation option. I hope Exploit Shield is also included in Minimal install option...

EDIT:
Where is this Exploit Shield even located? Can't find ANYTHING about it in the interface...

Exploit Shield does not have separate section in the Avast UI. There is just a checkbox where you can enable/disable this feature. It is in troubleshooting section in settings, similar to anti-rootkit monitor.

One more thing, does Exploit Shield have its own popup or how exactly does it work when exploit is detected? Or is it connected to File Shield or Behavior Shield?

The screenshot of RejZoR shows, that that's a premium version! But don't be sure, that the 'Anti-Exploit' will be a part of the free version of Avast.

AntiTrack is a stand alone component. It will not be a part of free version. Not really sure how it works, extension for browser already has anti tracking features hm... But since it failed, I have no clue how it works...

Thanks, RejZoR, for clearing this.
