minor bug, noticing it now but was probably there before. I had to switch to "public zone", explaining why I now have blocked entries in the log. As said the bug is minor, when keeping moving the vertical scroll cursor, once it has reached one end of the list, the list keeps moving strangely ;D

Is it possible for one to hide the button on the top that says Upgrade?

Oh yes, please! ;)

Can anybody tell write me, what this new feature
Quote
- added trimming of setup.log ...
exactly means?
I think, it should solve the problem that the "setup.log" grows up more and more and more, but I don't find any point in the program-settings.
Or does the programm this automatically? ???

Kind regards

Its called the price of a free product, a gentle nudge towards Upgrading and is certainly more subtle than many such free products.

My guess is limiting its growth potential, restricting it to either a file size or number of days records retained. I believe it would be part of avast's internal housekeeping so no option required in the settings.

Yes. Memory leak fixed.
New "settings" would be the correct word. Check the "Advanced settings" of the firewall.

I think you're right, David! ;)
Avira (just for example) is more horrible in this point...

Thank you, David!
That's a good explanation - and nothing more to do for me ;D, because there's no option required in the settings.

PS: 5.0.677 seems working good for me with W2000 Pro! :D

Kind regards

You're welcome, we will have to wait and see how this growth is kept in check.

I updated to v5.0.677 with no problems other than a few new permissions to the firewall which is normal procedure.

Avast team did a great job and thanks to all the beta testers as well to end up with one fine anti-virus.
