@ Vlk
Are there any plans to have the option we used to have with avast 4.8 on pre-release/beta versions of just downloading the small beta conversion file, disable self-defence module run the setup.exe file and it only downloads and updates the necessary files ?

I would love to participate in the pre-release version but at 55.01MB it is a bit much on dial-up (220 minutes), especially if there is any likelihood/possibility of having to repeat the exercise when the regular release comes out.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.1.6049 (build 23.1.7883.774) UI 1.0.746/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Installed and working Win7 64... :D Thanks


You mean the "Upgrade" button, right...?
Yes, the link is currently dead, I've noticed that also. Not a big deal unless you want to upgrade to the paid version anyway... ;-)

That's new, by the settings button? Yes, gives a 404...

Like the news section, but I think it would be better placed above the advert...Most people wouldn't have noticed it...

Good Work :)

There is a button next to the settings, just under the red x and minimise buttons (my first image)

Besides what Vlk has said, all I have noticed so far is the avast! news service (under the advertisment on the summary page...)

Most likely though most changes we wont notice so much...

-Scott

EDIT: Another thing I have noticed, is on the alerts, I think this link could be improved? What about the buttons we have seen in the alerts before?

By the way, it link to here: http://www.avast.com/en-gb/lp-security-information-fp?utm_campaign=Virus_alert&utm_source=fa_50_0&utm_medium=prg_systray&utm_content=en-gb

I found a minor problem after upgrading. I currently have the avast firewall set to ask me when a new program tries to connect to the internet. After I restarted my computer and logged in after the upgrade, I noticed the avast setup process seemed to have froze, so I rebooted, and when I logged in, avast asked me whether or not to allow the avast setup to access the internet. It appears that if the GUI component is not loaded, dialogs from the firewall are lost, which resulted in the avast setup process freezing.

Can you post a screenshot? I have the pro version and can't see it.

@ VLK

Is there any plan to add scanning to restart (boot-time scan) on 64 bit systems?

TIA

Can an option be added to auto update before scanning?  When I leave for Church on Sunday I tell it to auto scan at 9:30 but I forget to attempt to update the definitions.  I would appreciate this option being added.  Thanks
