Avast, however, does not protect against all malware

And you know a software that protects against all malware? Nice to hear details from you.
Even if such super protection would exist - you should backup your data regulary. Disks or sticks can fail, incoming data like emails can have data loss and disturb your inbox ...
And such backup is definitely NOT a job for avast.

So, what if you encounter a virus that will delete all backups (including system image files) but avast cannot defend against it? One might say "reinstall the system with the system disc" but not everyone has the system disc. If avast had a rollback, the viruses would have been shut out      所以你明白我的话了吗?

We can only lead the horse to water we can't make them drink.

Given your latest what if.  If this virus that "will delete all of your backups and avast can't defend against it," what  would stop it killing any avast rollback function.

Did you not notice we are advising to save backups to an external hard drive.

If you have very valuable system+data then image backup to external drive and store that drive in another building or in a fire safe.
This used to be the norm when I started with computers some decades ago. Hard drives have become more reliable, so users do not regulary experience the pain of a corrupted C: drive whether caused by hardware fault or software/virus. If the computer works today, back it up today. It may need to be restored tomorrow.

Easy - I take a system image & a file backup from a harddisk or notebook that is not connected.
If even that is new to you I begin to understand your topic.  ;)

I found a virus at random, and avast could not scan it, and could not defend it. Other anti-virus software with rollback, though not able to scan, can roll back after the virus is running, so rollback is necessary to protect against such viruses。

No AV is 100% effective. I'll stick with my scheduled backup protection to help when the AV does not.
I suggest you may want to change to that other AV that offers it's miracle rollback..

Although cannot achieve %100 defense, but can improve continuously! If you think that antivirus software doesn't need to answer to %100 defense, you can increase it a little bit, and rollback is one way to improve it

We're going around in circles. Rollback or backup is not a part of Avast.
Get smart and start doing your own backup.

User 2982118135, I think, started this thread in the hopes Avast would begin to feature a rollback feature because he posted it here.

Never said what antivirus has this feature afaik.  And has been given the solution to no Avast rollback feature more than once; backup your system.  And then seems to ignore what is said when he repeats his initial request in another 'what if' scenario. 

As we are users just like 2982118135, we cannot help him here.  Either he is not listening or does not understand.  Sorry.

I guess that is when that feature arrived? and FAQ pic is not updated

If you check avast FAQ I am pretty sure you find that all pictures are not updated to 2018
