NEW Avast Version 20.6 (July 2020)
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:13:16 AM »
Hi all, please welcome Avast 20.6
 
Here is the top new stuff:
  • Simplified privacy settings - We've updated our privacy settings to make it easier to manage your privacy
  • Payment notification - If for any reason your payment fails during an automatic subscription renewal, we’ll now let you know on the main dashboard

What was fixed:
  • Malfunctioned Chrome distribution upon install
  • Nasty Passive mode error (frozen UI, disabled service)
  • Some more rare Rescue Disk creation failures
  • IDP incorrectly stating that detection can/can't be removed
  • Handle leak
  • Heap corruption fix
  • UI issues when Remote Access Shield or Real Site were disabled as custom install components
  • Tray icon misbehavior when enabling/disabling components
  • Disabling confusing Firewall toaster on Unidentified network

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!

Hi all, please welcome Avast 20.6

Updated all three computers again, immediately tried to create rescue disks (USB) for the computers...

IT"S BAAAACCCCKKKK

**WE FAILED TO CREATE A RESCUE DISK**  on the two computers that I have rescue disks for when it gets to 29%!

How come this fault has reappeared? Are we going to have to wait another four months before you fix it again???  How come faults like this are occurring at all? Do you even test these new releases?

Note my annual paid subscription is due for renewal in two months, at this stage I'm not looking at renewing Avast, due to these problems over the last year, and the length of time it takes you to fix them.

All I've been reading on the net is that I only really need to run Windows Security on my computers, that I dont need a third party AV at all...

UPDATE: Tried creating Rescue Disks (USB) again today.  Rescue disks completed successfully for both computers.

Hi ^^

Bob3160 The problem with windows installer was fixed on a beta version few days ago.

So i wonder if it was already included on the 20.6 or to the next version?

Hi
if the release notes appeared at each startup of windows with version 20.5, they never appeared even after the 2 reboots following the 20.6 update.(3 computers updated).
is there a way to find them in the different languages without having to translate those of the forum?

There is a repost that the Rescue disc function is again broken?

To avoid confusion with Rescue Disk woes in earlier versions, I have created a new thread re 20.6 Rescue Disk failure here:
