I'm on windows 7 and sand box is missing it's not just xp!

It is a bit early to be reporting this as you are saying you have other problems as well.

I upgraded Pro from 1021 on W7x64SP1 using the download instead of the GUI and everything seems to be there.  Only anomaly so far is that WebRep only shows a score in FF, not IE, but that may be a link problem.  Will go try Vista and Free now and see wazzup there.
UPDATE: Did an uninstall and reinstall of the IE plugin and that is working now also.  Currently no issues.  :)

I just upgraded from v6.0.1021 to v6.0.1027. So far everything is working well on my Windows 7 (X86) system.

Installed Free 1027 as an upgrade to 1021 using the GUI under VistaHPSP2x32.  Everything is present; only thing that appears to not be working is WebRep for IE, where the bar chart is visible but can't be accessed.  For FF, no ratings but otherwise functional.  And for those with Private Firewall issues, PF is still working perfectly with Vista, including the GUI.

Installed Free 1027 as an upgrade to 1021 using the GUI, with no WebRep or Gadget. Everything here working great.

Question though: Since I chose to manually install the pre release 1021 over the official release 1000, and subsequently updated to pre release 1027 over 1021, am I now forever on the "pre release" versions of avast!? Or once a new "stable/official" release is available, will my 1027 GUI notify me to upgrade to that version?

In other words, will I eventually be back on the stable/official release without having to do a full uninstall/reinstall?  

Keep up the great work avast! team!

Once released, you come back to official releases automatically when you update the program.

Version 6.0.1027 causes TeraCopy to crash. It worked just fine in the previous beta (1021). Even tried a clean install, no luck. Went back to 6.0.1000 and everything works fine again. I'm using the free version.
I think it's related to the sandbox issue, 'cause (for some reason) avast thinks TeraCopy is "suspicious" (which it clearly is not) and wants to SandBox it.
Hope this can be sorted out soon enough.

Forgot to mention: Win 7 SP1 x64. Phenom II X4 945, 4GB RAM.

bye!

They will no doubt support other browsers in time, but they will do it in some sort of priority. That is likely to be based on the popularity, user base of the browser; Chrome is likely to be next in line but that too will take a little time.

I don't know if and when Chrome is supported other chrome based browsers will be able to use it.

From what I heard/read, it will take some months.

So far working fine and this is the first time (atleast as I could remember) that the built in update worked without a problem.
