Avast AV Beta-Version [20.7.2421]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Moving configuration from files to registry keys to improve related performance and reliability
• "Avast Passwords" component is not installed by default -> User needs to manually check it during setup
• Accessibility support for blind/impaired people in setup - Part 1 (The most of texts in setup should be read by screen reader app if it is installed (NVDA, JAWS) but task is not complete. There are still issues that some elements are not read at all / are read twice or in wrong order -> Usability is not perfect. We will try to improve it in next BETA builds.)
• Sensitive Data Shield status reported correctly even after disabling passive mode
• Icarus.exe process does not ask for connection permission (in Firewall) anymore

Known issues:
• Stopping SmartScan may freeze the UI (You need to restart the machine if you encounter the issue)
• Reset and restore (from backup in file) of the settings does not work properly
• Setup can crash during AV uninstall (It is not visible to user and AV should be completely removed from PC but some .mdmp files can be created in the root of the system drive, e.g. c:\)
