Updated from 6.0.1044 to 6.0.1086 via AvastUI.  Ran a Quick Scan.  Everything seems fine.  WebRep now doesn't have to be refreshed to show ratings on a Google search results page.  On 6.0.1044, I often had to hit reload in Firefox.

Congrats to Avast on update.

Did you resolve the problem with Windows Media Player that becomes red ? Because it comes from AVAST 6, when I uninstalled AVAST 6, Windows Media Player went to its normal colour.

@avragorn: red? could you please post a screenshot? thx

Well, I don't have AVAST anymore (I wait that the problems be resolved), but someone posted a screenshot here, because many users have the problems :

And I don't know if it is possible, but if you could optimize AVAST to make Youtube work better ... As I wrote, since a few days, since I have KASPERSKY (the trial version) Youtube works much better, the video buffering goes faster and the videos don't stop during they are playing. But since I can watch videos on youtube (since november 2008) I had problems when playing videos on Youtube, the videos often stopped for buffering .... and I had AVAST since 2007. So I think there is something in AVAST that makes youtube (and dailymotion) slow.

And it would be great to resolve the problem with Windows Media Player becoming red :) If you read the threads the users post here, many users have the problem and think that the AVAST staff doesn't work on it :(

Thank you very much :)

+1 What he said!

Time for Avast itself to load was 36 seconds (It has been taking up to 126 seconds to load).  Hopefully this will remain fast.

You do not indicate if you are running XP, Vista or Windows 7.

There is no problem on my XP Pro nor my Windows 7 systems.

XP Home or Pro. ???

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

Updated through the GUI and no problems so far. I'm also on XP SP3 with WMP11 and I have never seen it turn red like that.

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

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
