...6102 crashing repeatedly...  UI gets locked up, wants restart of Avast and then hangs with the avast dump process running.

24.2.6102 is a disaster on my W7 16GB machine!  In keeps "fixing" itself by doing what looks like a reinstall, then what looks like a network scan.  A usable UI is sometimes available during this and for a significant amount of time DNS lookups are not available.  When it appears to settle down, the "you are not protected" shows when trying to get status and the UI says Avast has crashed.  Indeed, an eicar.com test file is not flagged is being "bad".    So...  I flushed the beta completely and installed the real 24.1 release.  All is now good and the EICAR files get flagged as "bad".
Please refrain from saying get off of W7...   How long will you folks support it?   I have W11 on a laptop, but MS insists on changing/adding/breaking something each month.    The machine that will shortly replace the W7 box is now running Debian.  Any chance you'll have software for Linux that isn't an expensive business license?
Cheers, -Tom

Hi Karel,  I'd love to run the dump package for you, but to recover system functionality I had to run avastclear and install 24.1.6099 (build 24.1.8821.762).  When you release beta 6103 I'll try it.   I noticed that the avastdump (or something like that) process was running every time Avast crashed, so maybe it was sending you information?  I also caught "Avast emergency update" running some time.  The "company name" in the OS process tables changed to "Gen Digital" (your parent company) in 24.2?  -Tom

Thanks Karel. I updated about 24 hours ago via UI and have no issues to report. :) (Win 11 v 22H2)
