Can anyone confirm, when another language installed you no longer hear the womens voice when updating definitions
(here installed dutch language)

At a guess, the new localisation will not have the English language .wav files that were used for that.

Though looking in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Alwil Software\Avast5\sounds (will differ in win7 location) location there doesn't seem to be any English sub folder. So in theory the .wav files should still be there ?

In German version there is no voice. It seems there is a voice only in the english version.
All other languages just have a "ping" sound, but no voice.

This has always been this way in V5, so it's not unique to this pre-release.

AIS: downloaded, installed, rebooted...

No go. No internet connection with Firefox, IE8...

Went to programs, add/delete, started another update from there

Rebooted

Now everything is back to normal. But I had to reboot twice, and after 1st reboot my Fritz!Protect (simple Firewall for Fritz!Box DSL) did not ask for permission for new program versions. That happened after second reboot, now everything is okay.

But it was no "smooth" transition as it would be needed for the "average noob user"!  8)

Well, if the firewall finds out the executables were changed, but instead of asking simply blocks them... it seems to be a problem of the firewall ;)
Just guessing though...

Well, for the Dutch lady users, I am willing to offer my voice to Alwil ::)

Well - never happened before, and I always install these pre-releases. And it did recognize them - only after I "updated" again and rebooted a second time.
BTW: after the first update process, the UI showed "current vps: 100407-0" "not up to date" "available version 100406-1" and "update now" - strange, isn't it? I then updated manually the vps, and then everything was back to normal, except the internet non-access.

Not much of a problem though, since I seem to be only one with those symptoms.

So it seems to be normal there is no voice in dutch en german _ only in english version.
thanks for your answer, that means my avast is running fine :)

Vlk,
I am very happy to hear that Avast 5 repairs (cures) some of the patching virus, I'm sure that this is something not easy to do when the virus rewrites the original file parts, what it comes to my mind now is that in the scanners inside Avast, should they be changed to Repair/Move to virus chest/Delete? or Repair option would be recomended only in boot scan?

Upgraded one windows 7 computer successfully and switched the language to Dutch.
Installed it fresh in Dutch on my new Sony Vaio F laptop.
I will have to upgrade 2 more computers from my relatives.
No issues so far and thanks for the Dutch translation.
