Version: 19.8 (September 2019)
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:36:10 PM »
Hi, please do welcome Avast version 19.8
(19.8.2393)

These are the official program release notes:
  • Hello, menu, my new friend - Check out all the useful shortcuts we’ve added to our top-right menu
  • Goodbye, double-click - You no longer have to click twice on our popups to open or close them
  • Smarter Smart Scan - Virus scan now deals with threats automatically, so you don’t have to sit through our scans
  • “Reboot” got the boot - A redundant reboot message was fixed. A redundant reboot message was fixed
  • Firewall fix - Changing your Firewall settings will now (gasp!) actually change your Firewall settings
  • Passive Mode fix - Turning on or off Passive Mode no longer shows an infinitely spinning circle (your cat may miss this one, but you won’t)
 

Some of the other features/fixes in this release that might interest our forum users:
  • We fixed crashes of UI after online installation
  • We are using a new CEF version now to render the UI (3.3626.1895)
  • Fixed crash related to running Sandbox (if double-clicked) and also fixed displaying of detection dialogs in Sandbox
 

How to install:

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

2. Or you can download and install from here:

Online installers (recommended):

(For Premium Security, just use Premier URLs for now - later on, we would amend these.)

Offline installers:

We hope you enjoy the new version!

Hi,

I have to say that i like the new changes. Lets hope this new CEF renderazation engine will improve UI a lot :) i believe so it will.

I would like to report a minor error:

Whenever I ask Avast Data Destroyer to clean up the recycle bin files, it successfully completes but the recycle bin icon still appears full. I have to open recycling to "realize" that there are no more files in it. This is a mistake I found some time ago but had forgotten to report it.
I am using the latest version but this little error continues.

Keep up the good work.
Best Regards,

fvmb ;)

Thanks Benko and team. So far so good. :)

See two Avast Antivirus processes. Is this normal?

I don't know if Avast or I deserve a medal for this?

So... Well, I just updated and got a BSOD, with the stop code of: Kernel Security Check Failure.

Edit: Now noticed that memory integrity in Windows Security is switched off, I'm almost certain it wasn't before the update

Okay, seems like I've confirmed this: Avast 19.8 and Microsoft's memory integrity feature cause a conflict. I conducted a test, which was turning memory integrity on again and restarting, you can guess how it ended... Another BSOD with the same stop code

2x AvastUI.exe (3x with GUI opened) processes running, that is normal?
