!! NEW !! Pre-release version of avast! [6.0.1021]
« on: March 07, 2011, 12:58:47 PM »
Now replaced by build 6.0.1027: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=73657.0


Hi everyone,

we will soon be releasing a new program update of avast. And as usual, we're making it available for public testing a few days before the official release.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the original v6.0.1000 build.

Here's the list of the most important changes:
- solved an incompatibility with ZoneAlarm (WinXP)
- improved installation of the WebRep plugins (especially Firefox)
- solved a crash condition in the avast sandbox
- setup programs now smaller by ~20%
- Community features and the Welcome screen can now be turned on/off directly from program settings
- solved an incompatibility with Outpost firewall
- solved a bug related to the AutoSandbox offer (WinXP)
- gadget can now be removed by simply closing it
- new setup icons


Download links:
removed

You can either install from scratch, or over an existing installation of avast (any version).

Thanks
Vlk

Hello Vik.
Are is possible to make Avast to turn off Windows Defender (Windows Vista and Windows 7)when install it.They work together and i got to turn off ... myself.MSE and Norton do that.
Thank you.
....p.s.Verry good job Avast for version 6...Bravo. :)

Coccinelle, avast works side by side with Windows Defender. I don't think this would be implemented.

Yes Windows Defender work with all Antivirus but have the same Antispy modul....MSE and Norton turn it Off.
Windows Security Center says that they work together and 2 Antyspy modul can slowdown the PC  :P

I'm currently at v6.0.1000 Free having updated via AvastGUI from 5.1.889 when V6 became available.  All is working well, with the Avast install remaining in C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5.  Would there be any advantage to a clean install so as to have the more generic install path so future Avast versions have less problems with it's housekeeping?

Re: !! NEW !! Pre-release version of avast! [6.0.1021] FF crash in sandbox
« Reply #11 on: March 07, 2011, 02:38:59 PM »
Nice, but FF still crashes in Sandbox.  This was happening in the latest version of FF as well. I thought this version of avast might fix this.

The gadget resizing is indeed a feature of Windows 7. There's nothing like this in Vista.
