Any fix for the problem of not being able to create a rescue drive that many people have reported?
Just tested it.

Is it just me or does everyone have this issue. After updating to the latest build, I can't enable the site blocking feature on the web shield. Whenever I set it to enable, it revert back to disable. FYI, I'm on Avast Premier + Win 10 april update 1803 (RS4) 64-bit.

I had problems updating with previous versions with a new router/gateway as per my recent post here. Avast 18.5.2342 solves the issue, but there's a quirk with the UI/updater when setting updates to manual. If you click the update button, the updater/installer checks for updates & downloads correctly, but if you then click the OK button (for the defs tab) a loop ensues & the updater continually checks for updates & steals app focus unless you click the green OK UI button.

Should I uninstall the last version of Avast so I can do a custom install of the new version?

I did install the premium version of Norton but I liked Avast better so I used the Norton removal tool to uninstall it.  ::)

Key to a good antivirus program is does it protect my system(s)?   

Avast does that and has for ten years now. 

No infections, but then again, some of that has to do with my browsing habits and the fact I don't download and run new (free) programs all the time.  I am mindful that changes I make to any system are permanent unless I back it up.

Avast does the trick for me, starting with the free version.

I guess we can now take it that Norton Premium isn't better than Avast :)
