New beta version 21.1.2445
« on: January 28, 2021, 11:50:19 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 21.1.2445 (build 21.1.5931).

What was fixed
- BETA logo is back in main User Interface
- Configuration of the program no longer restored/reset after update
- Missing notification when Password Protection is disabled fixed
- JAWS screen reader is now working correctly (except the JAWS version 2021, which includes the issue itself)

Known issues
- some obsolete Antivirus program files and folders may remain on disk after update
- detection dialogs from Identity Protection are sometimes not on top (and therefore visible, but detection and removal works fine)

Enjoy this beta!
We are looking forward to your feedback.

No issues so far on this one, a part from that little annoying thing I've mentioned numerous times before.

Avast free (and others?) is still calling out to File Rep servers even when I have unchecked the "Enable reputation services" in the geek:area. It might be not respecting the settings with "Check my browsers for toolbars" aswell. I have unchecked the community IQ and other options on the privacy section.

I think there are still some advanced options missing in the geek:area, can we have those back if there are and maybe even more control over the product?

Note that disabling the reputation services certainly results in worse protection / detection capabilities.
Anyway, did you restart the computer after disabling that checkbox? Where exactly do you see Avast connecting? If you can guess, what's the trigger - e.g. starting a program, visiting a web page, or just randomly?

I did restart. Avast automatically connects to vl.ff.avast.com and filerep.ff.avast.com with the checkbox off. It will do it on it's own and after certain program launches.
