AVG Antivirus - Beta Testing our new installer
« on: May 18, 2022, 03:32:23 PM »
Hello, beta testers.

We've just released a free beta testing of a new installer and updater for AVG Antivirus (22.5.7216.2040), and we're asking for your help. Just make sure you install it on a machine without Avast Antivirus to avoid installation into passive mode where AVG AV would not be active. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated - thank you!

What is new
Brand new installer and updater (we call it "Icarus" setup) for faster installation and update times and with new setup UI. The installed Antivirus is the same as in regular Beta release

Target audience
Experienced Beta users with a heart for adventure.

What to expect
The brand new installer and updater.

How can you help
Simply download and install.
You can also try installing and uninstalling some AV components, start a repair installation, reinstall, or uninstall scenario and install it again.
Please report your feedback, especially when something unexpected happens. There is a list of known issues below.

How to report unexpected behavior
Please zip these two folders and include a screenshot. Thank you!

C:\ProgramData\AVG\Icarus\
C:\ProgramData\AVG\Antivirus\log\

or you can collect and send all logs automatically by opening AVG UI -> Menu -> Settings -> General -> Troubleshooting -> "SEND LOGS" button

If you want to revert to current installer
Uninstall this version (via Add/Remove programs in Windows), then download and install regular Beta installation package.
Use the Clear tool to remove installation completely, if everything else fails.
