NEW Avast Version 20.4 (June 2020)
« on: June 03, 2020, 01:02:15 PM »
Hi all, please welcome Avast 20.4, hope you'd like it.

Here's what new officially:
  • Safer web browsing - Web Shield can now block malicious sites based on their site certificates
  • Improved support - Our support team can now help you send them logs to diagnose problems.

One teaser for our dedicated forum users: Botnet protection - Web Shield can also block all connectiions to malicious servers. Functionality is in test mode for this release, expected to be full-scaled by the upcoming release. 

Some other fixes:
  • We've fixed several reported vulnerabilities (e.g. CVE-2020-13657)
  • Avast Firewall is now compatible with Microsoft Wireless Display adapter
  • Sleep mode works with the latest Windows Spring 2020 Update
  • Behavioral shield improvements
  • Better internal tracking of license activation errors in order to improve the activation process
  • Switching Free to Paid (and back) is now smoother
  • URL exclusions security improvements
  • ...and dozens of the usual minor crashes and internal stability improvements


How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program
2. Or you can download and install files:

Online installers (recommended):

Offline installers:

We hope you enjoy the new version!

Software Updater should be fixed later this week, this fix will be independent of the released version of the app (so no need to wait a few more weeks for 20.5, it should start behaving normally even with 20.4). Thanks for your patience.

Chrome is no longer managed by organisation, that means QUIC is enabled and scanned? Strange is for example youtube used QUIC and now always use TLS 1.3, maybe is QUIC disabled somewhere else?

My Computer still sometimes freeze on shutdown/restart. (Avast service was not properly shut down). Win 7 64bit, Avast free.

Any changes in the UI version with this release to cater for high resolution 4k monitors as there are problems with the current release.

Once again, as with every Update in the last year, Avast has broken my internet connectivity.  I am forced to disable all shields in order to connect to the internet.  This time, however, multiple restarts isn't working. If there is a fix for this, that would be great.  I have restarted and shut down my PC several times to no avail.  Shutting down individual shields does not fix the issue, only disabling all shields allows me to access the internet.  Even Avast itself is unable to connect to the internet due to its own broken blocking.  Ironic.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: I've found the culprit at last.  Deactivating Avast Firewall will allow me internet access once again.  Here's hoping good 'ol Windows Firewall will be enough. -_-  Why am I paying for Avast again?

Deactivation the Avast Firewall is using a sledge hammer to crack a nut.  There are many settings in the Firewall that could interact an cause this.  What is your firewall set on Private or Public do you also use a VPN, etc.

Did you try an Avast Repair ?

I think you should take this into its own new topic as new program update topic, get big quick and this could get buried in it.

It seems like after updating the software to the build version 20.4.5312.561. The Riot Vanguard process is unable to execute on start up as it should, since it is a kernel mode driver. Even after adding an exception, I cannot find a way to get Riot Vanguard to run on startup again.
The other problem I run into is that my computer completely refuses to start up at times. All those issues started right after I was prompted to update the antivirus. I tried to uninstall then reinstall Riot Vanguard but with no success.
Is there anything I can try to fix my issue?

Same thing here on 2 different PCs, one with Windows 7 and another with Windows 10 ( Ver 1909 (build 18363.836)). Firewall block internet access.
 
Update: I just updated another PCs running Windows 10 version 2004 (insiders program build 19041.264), but this one is running AVG Internet Security, but same version (20.4.5312.561). Firewall is on but no problem with internet access.
 
Update 2: Thanks to Asyn got it all fixed up. Working fine now.
