*BUMP*

Still a big problem. Attachments with viruses are now trying to get through. I can also confirm that this effects Avast and AVG, for obvious reasons.

When should we expect a resolution?

beta version - installed, it didn't help
request - generated 10 days ago
Any other ideas?
When will it be fixed?

Hi All.  Noticed a second update to the beta last night and installed it on her computer.  It works with Mail Shield turned ON.   Good news indeed.

Well Avast 22.9.6034 (build 22.9.7554.734) has very recently been released.  So I would have expected that to have fixes bi the beta version to have been applied.

That’s good to hear, DavidR.  I tried updating my wife‘s computer, which is running the beta, and it says No New Updates (it’s been updated twice).

I tried Googling Avast for updates, but the update page didn’t show, that I could find, what rev it is.

Is there a link to the rev you mention?  And does it automatically overwrite the beta?

Thanks.

The only way to leave beta is to fully remove the beta  (Using the removal tool)
and doing a clean install of the current release. You can not simply go back from a beta version.
One of the reasons I always emphasize that you should not install the beta without knowing what a beta version is.

Wonderful...  I guess I missed that memo, LOL.  Thanks for the tip.
