Does this version fix the Backup & Restore not working problem?

Why need Email Guardian? Doesn't Web Shield do the job?

I read the post but it doesn't answer my question. Doesn't Web Shield do the job?  Doesn't it also scan malware and phishing sites on web mail sites?

I guess that Avast One is still at the Beta stage or at least it feels like it.  For a freshly installed application I found it heavy on memory and less than scintillating in performance.  Under the skin it has a lot in common with 'traditional' Avast but the UI is obscure and there are fewer options to tune it to the user's liking.  I uninstalled Avast One and did a fresh install of Avast Free 21.11.  It performed beautifully and the system RAM usage reduced by 350MB.  I would only transfer to Avast One under the duress of the traditional version being unavailable.

I tried these two versions of Avast on a Toshiba Satellite Pro P200 laptop with 4Gb of RAM and an Intel Core2 Duo T5550 1.83GHz processor.  The traditional Avast version won by a country mile.  The default settings of the traditional version are well chosen and require little modification by the ordinary user.  Why Avast One?  That is what I ask myself.

Avast One Essential does offer more protection than the free version of Avast.
(Firewall and VPN are included in Essential and are missing in the free version.)
Yes, the UI is different and there are fewer options when it comes to customization.
Most users never change the default options regardless of the version installed.
The default options are set to offer the best mix of performance and protection.
There are however still quite a few adjustments that the user can make especially one you
learn the new interface.
That's my take on Avast One which is currently installed on my main system. :)

I just wish they would not make the "PC Speedup" optimisation feature automatic in the essentials version.  I have friends and customers who have had extreme issues with this in previous versions of Avast and it is a real pain to have to disable each and every app individually. First you have to turn it off for the app then you have to say don't consider this app in the scan going forward.  The program when installed on my PC "optimised" many programs that I know for a fact will cause issues with the computer (and those apps).  This feature is downright dangerous!!

If they made that "optional" with a toggle switch for the entire feature then I would happliy install it for people. Until then - no way!

Thankfully it seems that the driver updater and the program updater elements are at least manual so they can't do anyting silly in the background.
