@ JuninhoSlo
Read the topic, if you can't figure out how to get it, perhaps you shouldn't be beta testing security software.

Beta software, especially beta security software isn't something to take lightly, there are risks involved in beta software. Whilst avast beta builds are generally stable, this one hasn't even been notified officially in the forums where it would normally be.

So for me this isn't officially sanctioned and you should at least wait until it is if you feel you are comfortable with the risk involved in beta testing security software.

Why aren't Beta updates dicussed here?
avast!WEBforum > avast! support forums > avast! 4.x Home/Pro > Beta (Moderators: igor, lukor)http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=15.0

Its running on my systems now.

I like the fact that the avast! Pro advertisment has gone on my Windows 7 system.

Ooops. 

I see that DavidR beat me about beta usage but I have found that avast! releases good betas and the support here is excellent.

They are normally notified in the avast 4.x Home/Pro forums (and beta related topics raised in the beta sub-forum), why this hasn't happened this time I don't know, but my comments previously make me feel this wasn't yet ready for official release, given that they will be busting a gut on avast 5.0 beta. So I don't know what is going on with this one.

I'm slightly confused by this one too, in about avast it says that it is a May build...that's 3 months ago...maybe with V5 so close they didn't bother...who knows...

silly question, but did you disable the self defense? (only thing I can think of ;))

You're right, we'll be releasing a new 4.8 update soon. The main reason is that there's a security vulnerability in avast 4.8.1335 (in one of its kernel mode drivers) that needs to be fixed. Plus, there are some improvements in the scanning engine as well (in line with v5 preparations).

We didn't quite mean to release it as a beta first, but since you've already found it (as something we're currently testing)... be our guests.

I expect it will be officially released ~ next Tuesday (as time permits).

Thanks
Vlk
