Problem. This latest version, Avast Free Antivirus (20.5.2415 (build 20.5.5410.561)), now prevents me from saving my work in Corel PhotoPaint 2017. It tells me that corelPP.exe is trying to modify my protected folder (Huh? What? - no it isn't - its just saving to my Documents\graphics work folder like always, like I tell it to). When I manually override to allow the save to occur, actually the saved file never appears in my work folder. The latest version of Avast seems to have destroyed it. No issues with saving in IrfanView however, even though it's saving the same photo with the same edit to the same folder. And there were no such problems with the previous version of Avast, 24 hrs ago.

Typical more Avast crap.

I have to enter the code every time I open Avast can't it remember any effing settings?

Easier USB drive protection - We’ll now ask you to scan USB drives when you plug them into your computer. (You can also turn this off in your notification settings)

More Avast crap. I can't connect to my other computer everything has need checked file and printer sharing are set.

I have to put files on a flash drive to copy them over 20 time a day.

I have loads of flash drives there is 1  2GB I use all the time.

Now Avast popup scan drive they is nothing that wants scanning.

(You can also turn this off in your notification settings)

As I've said before Avast Premium Security 20.5.2415 (build 20.5.5410.561) 

For an application for any settings its total crap, menu search for text notification shows nothing.

Every application I build I have an help file you can search for anything.

Avast need the same help file.

notification on the top shows sweet FA

You tell me where notification is that you talk about?

You can disable USB thumb drive notifications from

Settings => General => Notifications => Offer to scan external drives

IIRC we also have a link to this settings (or "Click-to-disable" link) on notification toaster
Main: Win10 Pro 21H2 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 21 Premium Beta(Icarus) / Comodo Firewall (testing again)

I found that setting - Offer to scan external drives which isn't selected as I disabled it.

It searched for Notifications.

If I search for CyberScan which is the new DeepScan it shows nothing.

As I've said what is the point in have text search when you know the item is there but a search shows nothing. You shouldn't have to select a section to search and good help file will search all parts to find the text searched for.

For an application the help is total garbage for what I've paying for this crap. That is another annoying thing with this company and crap PAYPAL that won't sort the stupid price.

I've asked about subscriptions on here before with no useful reply.

I could make a new thread but it would probably be added to an existing subscriptions thread.

There is a lot of text to post.

As I've said I have to enter the code every time I open Avast up, can't is remember anything!!!!!

Hi,

I cannot seem to locate Mail Shield (Anti Spam) component in Avast. Has it been removed?

Thanks

Hello.

Yes, the anti-spam component has been removed.
You must confuse something else, Anti-Spam component is still there.
You can access Avast UI -> Privacy -> Anti-Spam.

Hello.

I contacted Avast support and they confirmed that it has been removed.

You need to do a clean install of Avast Premium Security 20.5.2415 (build 20.5.5410.584) and you will see it is missing!

Also your image is the beta version.

I include the Avast Support reply below:

"We’re sorry this update left you frustrated. We strive to provide the best protection possible, and our research and comprehensive review of the feature showed that Anti-Spam wasn’t offering enough value to our customers. And given that email providers nowadays provide strong embedded anti-spam filters, we decided to focus our development efforts on adding value in other areas. Recently we introduced new features like Remote Access Shield, Password Protection, improved botnet protection, etc. We think these new features — along with ongoing improvements to our other many features — provide advanced protection for our customers."

Thanks for the info, then it's not a good thing as official website still offers Anti-spam as premium feature.

In most cases there is no major difference with beta and stable build in terms of features, btw. If there is any stated, I avoid posting them here. :)

Thanks Stephen1066 for the detailed update.

I noticed however there is a component called Mail Shield when installing the latest version - not too sure if you noticed. Outgoing emails from outlook carry the Avast signature too. I guess Avast must have integrated Mail Shield and not included it as a component in Avast.
