  • Firewall recognizes VPNs - Firewall now knows when you’re using our VPN and won’t classify this as an unknown network. (Avast Premium Security only)

Does the Avast Free recognize that I'm using a VPN? I'm concerned with this update because it looks like a threat to confidentiality. How does it work?
The free version of Avast doesn't have a firewall.

I have a question Is it normal that after update I have now 3 AvastUI.exe processes launched, with Avast Software engine server (aswEngSrv.exe) and Avast Software Analyzer (aswidsagent.exe)? I also can't see "Avast Behavior Shield" anymore in my task manager. Is it supposed to be like that?

Yes, that's normal, nothing to worry about.

To me Avast Free has not yet automatically updated to the new version 20.8.2432. (I have the automatic setting of the updates).
Why? How long does it take on average to update automatically after it is published?

Thank you. ;)
Thank you and good day!

The update cycle is to spread/balance the load on servers (when you have hundreds of millions of users), but I would have thought you would have had it by now.

What do you see if you right click on the Avast tray icon and select About Avast ?
My guess is that it would say that there is an update available, etc.

After upgrading to this latest version of Avast, I have noticed in event viewer that on random moments i'm getting single errors from CAPI2 with definition: "A certificate chain processed but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider". Also i spotted that when i turn off my OS, i'm getting an information category error in event viewer about user registry handles leaks and there are few instances, 7 of them are by avastsvc.exe and one of them is lsass.exe. Any ideas why is this happening? I had these "registry leaks" before and repairing and clean reinstall of AV didn't help (It's showing only when Avast is installed) but process lsass.exe was never been there before and i was not getting that many errors about CAPI2, that's why i'm getting worried now.

Took me quite a while to figure it out, but "Enable Samba protection" on "Remote Access Shield" is an all-or-nothing deal.  When enabled, it shuts down my local network because I transfer lots of files frequently.  Seems to me an exclusion option for specific computers and/or the local subnet would be helpful.

This is what I see.
I don't want to click "check for update" now because I want to know when it will update itself and why it hasn't already updated.

You have already been told why it might not have updated, there is an update cycle over a period of time to balance server load.  All the hundreds of millions of avast users can't update at the same time.

As I suggested checking the Avast tray icon and select About Avast would indicate an update is available, as that command will effectively check what you have installed against the latest version.

It is your choice to wait and see if it does update automatically.

On average, what are the automatic update times? 1 week, 15 days, 1 month, etc ...
