Has avast's new anti-exploit module been tested for compatibility/conflicts with other well-known anti-exploit programs? --- specifically, with MalwareByte's anti-exploit module and/or with Microsoft's EMET?   If there are any known conflicts, what is their resolution? (I assume the answer will be to disable/uninstall the other program...)

[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]

Well, I don't think you have to enable/disable it, for it will be a stand-alone-program.

No need to wait, AntiTrack is a paid/standalone component while Anti-Exploit is not.

Come on, what's with this stupid online installer!?!?!!?!??! ::) It is just stuck at the initial splash screen with progress bar bouncing back and forth and that's it...

Installer always worked like a charm, but in the last few months it became absolute disaster. It's literally a wonder if I get a consistent installation twice in a row on my system these days. What gives?!

EDIT:
Aaaaand it's again stuck at installation, going through it at absolutely ridiculously slow pace. I just don't get it.

To me it looks like it might be a good time to stop trying to push out new betas
and start concentration on clearing up all of those outstanding bugs.

Couldn't agree more, hell there some bugs going back several program updates. Now that Avast is trying to go to one program update a month with a point one increment (17.8 - 17.9, etc.), it looks bad.

Hell even what would be considered simple bugs, the avast tray icon animation, being just one. Whilst avast might consider this as a non-important, users think otherwise, the forums show this.

It is now into the years category that avast promised to improve the right click menu for the tray icon, nothing, nada, zilch, zero improvements.  Unless of course you consider the removal of certain options (hardly an improvement), the Show last popup message.  This was a very handy option for the user to capture an image of the message.

The same is true of the Statistics options that were removed some considerable time ago to be revamped, again nothing, nada, zilch, zero.

A period of consolidation is most certainly required, no new additions until we have a bug free version of avast.
