Thank you for this!

Been running on a fudged installation of 4.7 (only way it'd work); just updated and it now seems to be back to normal (the Add/Remove had only Remove and now it has all the entries).

Great relief!

Thanks Alwil team. Working smoothly into Vista Business 32bits.

Ppl say layered defense is better. I call that BS. It's the tech and the way how you protect stuff.
??? If the tech is not enough to protect you, why not having a 2nd layer?

I wish the problem of slow computer start up with 4.8 would've been fixed before being "OFFICIALLY RELEASED".

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.  My system with 2.2 gig Celeron & 448 mb RAM strains at start up (between 5-6 minutes).

I'll be watching the threads for a week to see if much problems reported before I install 4.8. Looks an interesting upgrade though particularly the rootkit module so well done the Alwil boys.

There really isn't any reason to wait as the Pros outweigh any possible niggles (if they turn up) the beta trial went well and there were 4 beta releases to fix what was found. So I would say get in before the crowd.

I've tried it: unfortunately avast 4.8 home identifies a lot of false positive... I was forced to uninstall it :-(

Wow... I can't see avast detecting as much as false positives as you've seeing... are you sure they're false positives?
Can you send the files to virus (at) avast (dot) com saying why do you think they're false positives and they can analyze them? Thanks.

First of all, post a few examples of the filenames you think are false positives...
(and the reported virus names as well)

P.S. If you have any issues with the new build, don't post in this thread. Instead, start a new one.

The beta tests went well for me and now I have the official release of 4.8 also working well.

Great job, avast/awil team !    :D
