Good news everyone,
new stable version 18.2.2328 has just been released.
 

What's new:

- Threat detections made when Silent Mode is on will now appear in Notification Center

Fixed:

- Automatic shutdown after scheduled scans is working again
- Our tray icon now animates properly
- Missing text has been added back when right-clicking the Recycle Bin
- Compatibility scan can be added to Smart Scan again via Settings
- Squashed some rescue-disk creation bugs


How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program

2. Or you can download and install from here

After updating of Avast I can't run Internet Explorer.  :( Others browsers (Chrome, Firefox) are OK. I have Windows 7 and Avast 18.2.2328.

1. IE on Win 7 cannot be started. This is serious problem, fix should be priority.

2. Overseer.exe was added to 2 places: C:\Program Files\Common Files\AVAST Software\Overseer\Overseer.exe, and also to C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\setup\Overseer.exe. Taks in task manager leads to setup folder.

3. Uninstaller still not able remove Overseer from "common files" (Removed by hand before installing 18.2).

4. Scan time still tell me "few sec".

Now you can see what can happen if stable version is relaeased day after beta version :)

Same problem here. IE11 on Windows 7 64 bit.
IE starts with Avast disabled.

Yes disabling shields solve this problem, but you are not protected.

Problem seems to be in Behavior Shield, looking into it.

I updated to the latest version 18.2 on my windows 8.1 machine -> reboot -> avast showed an ! and the firewall stopped working, suggested mt to manually turn it on -> I did

I had to perform a Repair -> problem fixed

this happens many times in the past usually after a new version update

Given the problem with IE11 on Windows, shouldn't this release be pulled from the website and automatic updates?

Yes, the forced updates have been disabled for more than an hour so the version can only be downloaded by new installs only until this is fixed.

While the tray icon doesn't show an update available, if you open Settings / Update you see the new version being available.

When will Avast start with Windows? At the moment, I'm forced to put it in the Start Programs.
