Awesome! Can't wait to get home from work and test this baby. I just had this feeling like avast! pre-release update is ready. And it actually was lol.
As strange as it might sound i actually missed any kind of warnings from the Network Shield.
It's sooooo cool to see it doing something lol. Yeah i know, i'm weird... ;D



Will "infected count" increase when something is blocked and will "last infected" display URL of the blocked website?

I wonder if you could retry the beta install with D+ disabled.
I'll wait the next beta release and, if I do not forget, try to do so.

All fine ... very good work!
Even outlook plug-in works perfectly.
Thank you Avast Team.

I followed the instructions but it prevented to load Windows normally (boot start-up) so I had to expose myself naked to malware and reinstall the old version. Hope you'll solve this problem soon! :o

We'd certainly need some more info. What exactly happened?
If there was a bluescreen or restart... is there any corresponding minidump (in Windows/Minidump folder)?

Funny. It seems that my ISP checks Google's URL and corrects it by itself if there are any typing errors. Tried typing www.gooogle.com and i was simply redirected to www.google.si. And i'm NOT using OpenDNS. Is there any other URL that i could use as checking tool for this new feature?

Why was it a major annoyance? I.e. what specifically did you dislike about it?

There have been occasions where legitimate (non-viral) content was blacked out entirely simply because of one questionable hosted file or link. There was also no option of whether you wished or not to bow to ESET's decision to control what you can or cannot view on your own computer; the only way to bypass that was to disable the HTTP scanner entirely.

I'm wondering if avast! has my ass covered if the Network Shield does indeed turn out like this, by giving me the option to disable this feature.

That would be a very welcome addition indeed.

No Igor,
     Everything went OK except it blocked loading programs at start-up (I restarted ( but it did not restart twice, although when it stopped loading I was nervous and shut my computer off the normal way: tried to boot a second time but same result with loading)) (no blue screen, normal windows desktop but taskbar incomplete, no internet connection, no online armor firewalll...). First time this happens with AVAST, even in beta software. No minidump file in Windows. I have to admit I have major issues with major Windows installations (some critical Windows Update installations) and my ONLINE ARMOR FW HIPS was on. But usually even with Comodo D+ I had no problems. Giving it a second try??? I have to make up my mind. Thanks! :'(
I uninstalled the beta with Revo in safe mode and downloaded the more stable and final version of AVAST HOME and tested it with EICAR.com and it works. What more?!! :) Oh yes, AVAST is installed in D:/PROGRAM FILES /AILWIL SOFTWARE :P

When I click on www.gooogle.com, it opens up normally as http://www.google.co.uk/

Is this what should happen?

I didn't receive any pop up messages when I used that www.gooogle.com link, and I don't have a Network Shield either, just a standard Shield, is that normal due to having 98?

Bone, who is not an "update" current, major improvements will not?

When will the final version? (NOT beta)

Thank you
