I downloaded the multi-lang installer again today (tuesday) and for some reason it's about 10MB smaller than yesterday's installer...what happened? Someone forgot to re-compress the new installer properly?
monday: 66mB
today: 56MB
same ver. (6.0.1091)

Are you sure that you downloaded the setup of the same product?

Ya and i just noticed that the set up file was compiled again (i think).
I think this because my download manager shows the date of file modified on server and I downloaded again and it is showing me 19-Apr-2011 4 PM NOTE: I downloaded on 20 Apr @ 11 Am Indian Time zone.. So that could be the possible reason which made the setup file even more smaller.

And its good for us ..... avast and vlk rocks

Hi Avast Team,

I have had couple of BSODs on my system last week. My [Exclusion Settings] for "File System Shield" and its default settings were all gone. I would like to know if this is normal with new version of Avast? Shall I restore Avast to its factory defaults every time I encounter a system crash or bsod? Can those settings be saved somehow?

If I am not mistaken, I don't think version 6.0.100 had that issue. But I started to notice the problem after upgrading to 6.0.1044, 6.0.1085 and now 6.0.1091.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

BTW, I am running Avast Free 6.0.1091 on XP Sp3 with ZoneAlarm Pro 8.0.400.020

I apologise if this is a silly question, but I would like to know if the additional features like webrep etc. are installed by defalt in version 6 or whether they can be optional? I have the latest version 5 which I have had no issue with across 3 machines - 2 XPSP3 and 1 W7SP1 64bit - and would like to have a stress free update if I decide to change from the brilliant version 5, which does everything I need. I have read a lot about issues with version 6, especially the webrep and community options etc. Is it possible to update to version 6 without all these (apparently) buggy extras?

No, not true. You can do a custom install and leave out the features you don't want or need right from the start.  ;D

Good catch. Yes, you're right. The original installers (from April 18) didn't use the new compression scheme yet. The new ones, that are now available for download, are using the new compression scheme. Of course, the product is the same if you use either of the installers.

Thanks

You need to configure IDM to scan files with your current av under the settings.
