Like all things in life no guarantees with betas, though this one isn't a huge change so should be fine unlike the version 5 beta which is a very large change to everything. Generally the avast beta builds have been stable (version 5 beta aside), no issues so far after installing the 4.8.1335 beta.

thanks for the response DavidR...
since you have no issues ....
Thanks, Igor, I too will try the 4,8 beta though I too haven't had any issues with ashServ.exe.
....the beta update would probably work for you

the main reason why I ask if this beta update is really stable is because at the moment I am encountering small issues with the memory..I am afraid that if I apply a beta update which is not stable ..that it might cause additional memory issues.
also the reason why I said this..[/quote] regarding the said official update next week, hopefully it would be really next week...[/quote]..is that if this is not a stable update I would be very much willing to wait(since I already waited for a week already) for another week since I believe that avast! is a great free AV....

thanks.

If you are experiencing issues the same as reported in this topic, then this beta has been released to address those issues, if you don't try it you won't know if those issues have been addressed.

In which case you will have to wait for the final update release or reports of those with this issue who do try the beta and report their findings.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.10.6038 (build 22.10.7633.734) UI 1.0.733/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

You don't need process explorer. To start and stop services, in Windows press start-run and typ services.msc

In the list you can find the "avast! Antivirus" service and restart it.


Same problem here with avast 4.8-1351.
If I run the web shield (AshServ), it grows in virtual memory hour after hour.
If I stop it, just after my computer starts, it stays at around 30 ko in virtual memory, but of course it isn't scanning datas from the web...

I don't think this was happening with older versions.

The only way I have when it becomes too big, is, as you said : services.msc, then I stop Avast and I restart it.
When done, the virtual memory shrinks from 300 ko (or more) to 30 ko, its normal size.
It avoids to restart the computer each time AshServ becomes very big !

I hope this will stop with a newer version of avast. If not, I'll have to try another antivirus, I guess.

Hi Cephei,

For now, you could try the steps outlined by igor (Reply #130) to try and resolve this problem:

The fixed version has been released as a public beta for now (I mean public beta of avast! 4.8, not avast! 5.0).

Here are the steps to install it:
1. Disable avast! self-defense in Settings / Troubleshooting
2. Download and run the following file: http://files.avast.com/files/beta/aswbeta.exe
3. When the upgrade is done, re-enable the self-defense again

The official update will most likely be released during the next week.

Thanks for releasing this fix. I installed it and ashServ.exe's virtual memory stays around 33 MB. I just had a problem when installing it, first time I run the patch it completely froze my computer and I had to turn it off manually. I would advise the ones who want to do it to close all applications first.

It's best to start a new thread for this, and I can help you, it is not a particularly nice site. And save cluttering this one. ;)

Also, just in case, modify your post to disable the link - Change http to hXXp

Cephi,

Please start a new thread for this (in the viruses and worms section), it is not the right place here...

I have looked at the site and can tell you about it, but not here.

sorry for asking again, but is there any chance of releasing the update "REALLY" this week?
thanks.
