This solves the only problem I had with 864/874:
"Minimised scan window --> Show scan results doesn't work"
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=69092

And I only noticed this yesterday :)

Thanks,

Scott

Re: *** Hope this fixes the Boot time issue

I encountered a boot time scan issue last night with .874.  Got a disc full error and was unable to complete the scan.  When attempting to "ignore" the file, it just went into and endless loop of trying to send the file to the chest.  Ended up exiting out of the scan.

This was after a complete removal, including the uninstaller, and clean install.  I'll try the new beta tonight.

By the way, it's the Behavior Shield that is causing my game to crash. I installed the Behavior Shield on 5.1.874, and all is well. Let me test this with the Behavior Shield on.

i just saw in the updater on one of my machines the free version when i opened avast 5.1884 was available
I was on the beta pre release prior- 5.1874
Did the upgrade- asked for a reboot and so far all is fine

my other machine running the free vers1on 5.1864 (which btw i had no problems with it on this machine) doesn't have the upgrade yet.  

Do you roll it out in bunches?

Also how come in the past it used to popup telling me that there was an upgrade.  Now it doesn't- why?

How is a user to know it needs an update unless they open it up and see it?

Something should popup or the icon in the startup should turn color or something to show there is an upgrade

I'm still using 5.0.677 right now because I had problems with 5.1.864. Will I be able to directly update to 5.1.884 when it's available, or will I have to install the other two updates first, or should I just uninstall Avast! and clean install 5.1.884?

5.1.864 is a public, general release build.
5.1.874 was a Pre-release (beta-ish) build.
5.1.884 is another Pre-release (beta-ish) build.

Users with the General release builds will not be notified of PR builds.
Users with previous PR builds will be notified of updated PR builds, UNTIL they are updated to a  final general release build.

You have to choose the PR builds, they are not offered by the GUI.

i am lost.
Since i upgraded from .64 to .77 via the pre release you are telling me for future releases that go through the normal updater i will not be getting them?

now that i am at 5.1884 any future upgrades will only come if i download a pre release? and if I do not and just wait for the one that goes out to the general public I will not be able to get that one?
Please confirm
thanks

You can install .884 over the top or wait for the stable release which should be out within 24 hour's hopefully.

relax ;D upgrading manually to this pre-release (and only if you really need it) won't prevent you to be automatically prompted to upgrade to the final release :D

Hi all.
I did upgrade avpro from 5.1.874/B at 5.1.884/B (with installation on the avpro 5.1.874/B).
All ok.
Test in progress.
