Re: * Introducing * - beta version of upcoming avast update (4.7.925)

its the eicar test from their site, itself... i was testing if Web Shield would block the download, but apparently it did not.. :-\

its a double-packed ZIP archive, according to eicar's site... my Web shield is set to High setting already, with All Packers checked.. the weird thing is that the Explorer extension could detect it, that is if i downloaded it and scanned it..  :-\

how about the password problem? do you experience it too?

thanks

I don't see anywhere in the web shield that you can tick for all packers ?
However, what was the URL path, if it began with https: then avast doesn't monitor secure encrypted traffic, it can't.

Password, sorry I don't know what your problem is

but the bad news is, i think there's something wrong with the password protection coz i cant seem to get it to work! a red message box would appear telling me that

"avast!: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

 avast doesn't use passwords in updating I assume this is what you are talking about (?) and your error message mentions nothing about passwords but a file in use by another process. I doubt this is beta bug related issue or all or many of us who are using the beta would be experiencing it.

sorry if i've confused you, somewhat with the "password" prob i'm having..

what i meant was the password you could set to protect your settings for avast!..

its not working at all for me, and i don't know why...

and with the tick with the "All packers", i could access it coz i'm using the pro version

and i'm pretty sure that the the port is HTTP, coz i'm using a firewall.. hmmmm..

i guess i'll have to tweak around with the avast4.ini file...

thanks for the reply David  :)

Ahh that would be why I can't see it I assumed you were using Home since you didn't mention what version you had.

I don't use the password protection of settings as 1) I'm the only user, 2) if I have a problem like that I would just install my last hard disk image.

The only thing I've heard about a problem was someone forgetting it and having to uninstall, boot, run the uninstall utility, boot and reinstall so they could reset it. This would appear to be different to your problem, which you could expand on.

Since the Red box doesn't relate to password protection of settings, do you still have a problem with updates or this red box ?

Both of the above issues I doubt are directly related to the beta version, so it would probably be better to create a new topic for it so as not to clutter up the beta topic.

When will be launched the version 4.8? It has some date?
Version 4.7.925 is very steady.
It forgives me the repetition.
A suggestion: I know that already I suggested some times, but would be good if the Internet protection was faster in the sweepings, therefore the times the opening of pages are slow when the protection is active.
Congratulations for all.
Thanks.

JOOOOO is it too early to know when 4.8 will be released. About WebShield you will notice a little slowdown if you have a dial up connection

I'm on dial-up and I see no noticeable slowdown when using web shield.

Congratulations to the developers for the effort to turn Avast (even :D) lighter on resources and speed, I think this objective should be an obsession for all software engineers, specially for the Windows Vista ones :P.

But why not put the download link in the Download/Beta software session in the Avast site? There, currently there is a message saying "(sorry, there are no beta programs at this time)". I looked for the beta at the forum first, but, for who visits the site...
