Now superseded by version 5.1.884.


Hi *,

we have just released a new pre-released build of avast, version number 5.1.874. This build is supposed to solve the majority (if not all) of the problems reported for the original v5.1.

If you're having any kind of issues with the current release build 5.1.864, we recommend trying this one -- hopefully, it will solve your problem.

Fixes include (but are not limited to):
- compatibility with Acer control software
- compatibility with the Game Guard application (although this is still work in progress, because of the hacks Game Guard is using)
- compatibility with a Dell wireless network adapter
- various 0xC0000005 and 0xC000007B errors (e.g. with some .NET applications)
- issues related to upgrades from v5.0 (inactive shields, missing right-click associations, missing 64-bit boot-time scanner etc)
- other possible hang/crash conditions (relatively rare but possible)
- performance related issues
- UI related issues

Your feedback is appreciated.

Just one question. Can this be installed over the top or clean install only?

Edit: For anyone wondering the download version is 5.1.874 and not 5.0.874.

Can also be installed over the top as well, of course.

Thanks

okay did an upgrade with the downloaded setup file (upgrade from the UI wasn't available, but I suppose this was wanted), rebooting was pretty long but all seems to be fine so far... just time will tell, must be using it a few hours and try misc system operations before I can tell anything.

Hi *,

we have just released a new pre-released build of avast, version number 5.1.874. This build is supposed to solve the majority (if not all) of the problems reported for the original v5.1.

Vlk,

This appears to fix the compatibility problem with Dell Broadcom-based wireless cards. I have installed the new version, plus the Behavior Shield, and have not experienced any Windows alerts so far.

Thanks very much to the entire Avast team. This kind of support is why I've stayed with Avast through some of the "hard times."

OK... so 1st problem for me:

Security Center says that avast! is deactivated when appears as Secure and with all shields ON. The icon rotates also.
When i try to execute the program (attach 3) the problem persists.
See attachments, please.

Thanks.

I wouldn't worry much about that. After I performed the install, the application identifies itself as version 5.1.874.

Installed .874 over .864, pro version under W7x64.  Wasn't having any of the referenced problems and the latest version has not so far exhibited any new ones.  Security center recognizes it fine, BTW.
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 ;)
