Alright, I've prepared an (yet-unofficial) update thath should solve the problems. I'd like to ask anyone who's been having problems w/ version 4.1.412 to try it out.

How to install it:
1. Download the file http://cat.asw.cz/beta-bart2/servers.def and place it to the <avast>\setup folder (overwrite the existing file) -- see comments below on how to download the file.
2. Invoke avast! program update (will require reboot).

That's about it.

Note that servers.def is a text file - so I recommend to right click the link and select "Save as". If you left click it, it may open in your browser as text (as a page). In that case, you can simply copy&paste it to the corresponding file, but the first method is definitely more convenient.


(Yes you figured it -- the procedure is exactly the same as was for the beta last week).


And please -- let me know how it goes.

Thanks
Vlk

Do you have a ETA for the official update? Or does it depend on how this update goes?
Thanks Vlk!

Cool! Just like the beta.  ;D
BTW, the beta wouldn't make my installation "dirty" right? (No reinstallation needed for the official tomorrow?)

No, it's just like an extra update. No extra stuff. :)

Better than ZoneAlarm 5.0 or Windows XP SP2 Betas.  :D
Should backup my server.def, should I?

You don't have to back it up, it's always available at http://www.avast.com/iavs4x/servers.def

1. Screensaver Config Fixed
2. Screensaver Selection Missing From Screen Saver Task. (See Below)
3. Slidebar Problem Exists. (Tasks -> Resident Protection -> Script Blocking -> Set to normal.) (Double click Avast balloon -> Script Blocking -> Slider did not change to normal if it was at custom)
This is same for Standard Shield. Not really a big deal, but...  :)

You should leave your server.def in place until the next official update is announced.
