There's a little thing in the Free version, I wanted to post that on the last pre, but I somehow forgot.

The "Avast News Service" on the bottom of Summary / current Status page seems to be somewhat outdated. It is still announcing WebRep for the upcoming version 6...  ;D

Can't you feed it with some other news that are really new?

And yes: I know it's not a bug in the program. But if you have something like a "news-feed" it should at least not show something that isn't new anymore - in this case it's even history.  8)

Welcome
To be updated on 6.0.1086 avast cent from GUI? Or can only be to download the installer package to start 6.0.1086 and then choose the upgrade? It would be important in order to improve the ZoneAlarm always treasure because it freezes the whole system sb.bin

If you run the 6.0.10XX, you can update via GUI.
6.0.1000 and smaller, you have to install via downloaded installer file or wait until release.

I am sorry ... I wrote it in a previous post ...
I use Windows XP SP3 - 2.17 GHz - 1 Gb RAM.
XP Home or Pro. ???

It also depends on your Windows customization and Windows Media Player version.

Sorry again, I have windows XP home SP3 ... and Windows Media Player 11, with the normal skin, I never changed it (I don't find the folder where it has been downloaded !!! - the folder "windows media player" has only an older version of WMP from 2004  ???

You should work too on the problems with false positives ... Av-comparatives doesn't put AVAST in the best antiviruses because of that : http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_od_feb2011.pdf
The Windows Media Player folder in Program Files should contain all of the files for WMP11. If it doesn't, that's probably why you're having problems.

As to the false positives, Avast has always been one of the leaders in having the least. It has beaten Avira in that regard in every report I have seen. That report you linked is strange because I've never heard or seen any testing organization criticize Avast! for having FP's.

6.0.1000 when it was going to run the GUI to update the program, nothing happens. Or download the FREE installer which is linked to the first post and then run the installer if the update go?

WebRep glitch - German Version
« Reply #52 on: April 17, 2011, 01:45:23 AM »
Theres a glitch in the german WebRep rating pop-up.
Seems the dedicated area is too small, so something is either cut off at the top or at the bottom (the contents moves up and down in the window when you run the mouse vertically over the pop up).

This is due to the translation of the last point "WAREZ / ILLEGALE INHALTE" - change it to "WAREZ / ILLEGALES" pls. and all's well.  ;D

You can't update from 6.0.1000 from the GUI. 6.0.1000 is a release version and only allows you to upgrade to another release version. 6.0.1086 is a pre-release version, or in other words, a beta. 6.0.1000 is the latest release version available. To get 6.0.1086, you will have to download the installer and then just run it over the top of 6.0.1000. That should work fine.

Thank you,

About Windows Media Player 11 becoming red, I am not the only AVAST user who has the problem, if you read the threads posted here you will find many posts about that problem.

About FP's, I linked the most recent test made by av-comparatives last february but with AVAST 5. Maybe AVAST 6 will have better results.

edit : maybe if I go back to the latest AVAST 5 version before AVAST 6 it would better. I had no problems with AVAST 5 (except False Positives sometimes). But will the "infections updates" be available for a long time for AVAST 5 ?

I thought context menu text will change to "avast! Scan" or "Scan with avast!". Hope in the new version...?
