This version really screwed me.

It is not listed on your changelog that I can see above.  But you REMOVED the ability to use leading asterisks in the exclusion list.  So */My Random Folder/* no longer works... and since I do not know the user profile name that is going to be on the computer it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to create an exclusion.

You also removed the ability to use *.exe it HAS to END in *... so "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\*.exe" NO LONGER WORKS!
Also as I had it "*\Users\Public\Desktop\*.exe" does not work ether.  Is the removal of your wild card support a bug or did you just do it to us intentionally?

Also.. The letters in the CAPTCHA are OBNOXIOUS!!! I CANNOT READ THEM!!!


You still have not fixed the bug where the hardened exclusion list is blank unless you add something to it, click okay and then go back.

eMail has stopped working.  When I run a test eMail it goes through.  But when my client encounters a virus I get NO EMAIL AT ALL!!

Otherwise.. great product!  Love it dearly.. It is just costing me hundreds of dollars and hours of labor so I am annoyed.  Oh, also annoyed that you are willfully installing a browser on my clients computers that they DO NOT WANT!  Please stop doing that.  It is completely counter productive to what you are and makes me wonder.

ALSO PLEASE FIX YOUR CAPTCHA!  I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO ENTER IN LETTERS FOR THE PAST 10 MINUTES.

I see people start complaining about issues, may I suggest implementing beta versions for volunteers which people can use and report issues before launching the update to everyone else? There are a lot of people which don't use forum for fixing solution but simply uninstall if something not work and you lose important amount of users.

I come back with another update,
I found out a connection between alt+tab game and Avast. When I play Europa Universalis 4 and instead of listening ingame music which I turn off, I'm listening in background Music from Youtube.
When I disable the DND feature, I don't have issue, when I re-enable I have the issue again.

The strange behaviour happens only on youtube, If I have chrome opened with lots of tabs I don't have any issue (If that helps). I tried to kill the avastUI.exe process but I can't because I have access denied error. This error happens even if I keep youtube tab opened and paused the music in background.

Hope that helps.

On a brand new computer, I installed Dropbox.  I disable Avast and I am able to start dropbox and get a login prompt.  I enable Avast and run dropbox then gets a network error.

I can't renew my free license, it displays an error and I can't get the new free license. I even tried using a "universal key" but the same error appear. What should I do?

I thought you planned to stop using the term "Security update" for a new version of the program.  Still low priority, I suppose.

no, we just changed the urgency from yellow to green

I see.  I'm afraid that change was so subtle that it escaped my notice.

In my opinion, it is the terminology used which should be changed.  As I have said before, "Security update" suggests fixes related only to security.  "New version" is, in my opinion, a more appropriate term which, by the way, is still used in Settings > Update > Program.

So here is a weird thing Avast does I recently noticed:

If a file is found with a suspected infection, I get an alert with a screen asking me what I want to do. Move it to the Virus Chest or add an exception. Or report a false positive.

There isn't an option to do nothing. But I can at least still just close the screen and not make a choice. So, fine. Annoying, convoluted, but OK. ( I need to just let it be sometimes*, without keep adding exceptions that I then later have to remove again)

However, then there will be a notification that a file was moved to the Virus Chest. Which it WASN'T! To be clear: it shouldn't, because I didn't tell it to do so. But the notification still says it was moved. So that is confusing, and made me double-check if the file in question was still present on my system or whether it was quarantined.

That notification is incorrect. Having that screen pop up does not mean a file was also moved to the Virus Chest, as there are other options.


*: this does not mean I'm trying to run the executables that are suspect. I might just be unpacking and repacking them.

I have unsintalled Avast Free

Installed new version...

Still I can play Company of Heroes 2 5 minutes longer before it crash. If I uninstall Avast, Company Of Heroes 2 will work fine.
