okay I did it ;D I was expecting it tbh but still clicked on "update program" to see what it does, and it got indeed downgraded to 5.0.677 ;D +  an "license expired message", then a pop up asking me to renew, clicked on "I already have...", license got re-activated 8)...just like that :) will have to upgrade again... but I'll do that from scratch.

Hi

The Network Shield does not work in this Beta? Everything else seems to be ok, except the NS module doesn't work. Windows 7 x64. Tried re-starting it, doesn't work. Is this expected?

It should be fixed now.
But you will have to download the beta setup package again (note that the URLs have changed little bit).

Sorry for that.

You mean the "Retrieving information" box? This will be a new Welcome screen (shown immediately after installation), most likely going live tomorrow (at least the English version). It's not there yet so that's why you didn't see anything but the progress bar...

The Network Shield should work normally. Strange.

Any idea why mine worked then if the server was incorrectly serving up 5.0.677 ?

Not that I'm complaining about my installation working (install over 5.0.677) ;D

It probably didn't quite work. I bet the next time you invoke program update you will get back to v5.0.677.

Had to do a reboot for it to initialize. Strange, as everything else was working, and never had to do that before. Seems to be Ok now, thanks.

Yes, invoking a manual program update drops back to 5.0.677, downloaded again and will install after a reboot to drop back to 677.

Installed with no problems.  Had to reinstall Adobe Flash Player to see statistics, but now OK.  Did an update and it stayed at version .798, so I have the right one.  Installed AIS but running in Pro mode currently.
Windows 7 x64HP-SP1-No UAC, Opera 11.51, Avast! Internet Security 6.0.128, Webroot SecureAnywhere latest beta, Windows FW off, MVPS HOSTS, SAS/MBAM offline, Macrium Reflect just in case ;)

Thnx Avast! Team :)

Downloaded and upgraded, but I have to get a few hours of sleep now. I will look at the BETA tomorrow and let you know :)
