Changes I make to the Sandbox settings won't stick. After clicking ok to confirm the changes, everything goes back to the default settings. Changes made in other modules work fine. Running AIS 6.0.1198 on Win 7 32-bits.  ???

Have to check out uTorrent with this one to see if the firewall issue has been resolved. Didn't have time to test the first beta build...

mm works good except silent installer:




folders in directory:




How do you do the silent install, exactly?
And what language version of Windows do you have?

Thanks

thanks

but doesn't fix the pop up bug
i set 0 to disable the pop ups
but it does work
i know there is a game mode , but i would like to shut down the pop ups

Although it's OT, that's not a bug. Pop-ups = zero does NOT mean zero seconds. Leave it at 1 second or more, and change the Status Bar monitoring options (but unfortunately, "Status Bar" monitoring may have bugs; it has bugs in the 6.0.1125 stable).

(For Avast 7.x it could be suggested to make it as an option (or add some "trick", like using "-1" or whatever; but I wouldn't know how it could work when combining it with "status bar monitoring" settings. Just a thought.)

I have an exclusion in the FSS for malzilla, which used to work. In the latest versions it doesn't...

Does anyone have a new Scan in the Scan Now tab?  I have one named "? ? ? ?" at the bottom of the list.  I don't remember creating it, and only noticed it after this update.

Nothing wrong with my system!

Does the build fixed the firefox UI bug on the webrep vote page ? There the corners that is strange...

Also if you didnt notified when surfing the UI of avast! you can notice at the scan logs the scroll bar isnt complete.

Maybe you should verify the bug i mentioned long time ago for that icon Delete glitch and exclusions you can notice in down when you got some exclusions there little black things. Also there others which i dont remember happaned too...

PS : Is it normal that translations for most languages are not yet finished in the website for all languages excepted English like where you see that Mac Edition or Server Edition and others products with old 4.8 versions... ?

I dont know if it is fixed yet but its worth to be checked. Other way nice job avast! your a good business keep continue. You can say that you protected alot worldwide people and you should be very happy. ;)

CreditAlert monitoring for Non-US users.

I was having a rummage around in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AVAST Software\Avast\log folder for something else and found the creditmonitor.log file. Considering this CreditAlert feature is meant to be US customers and is opt-in, see below.

<snip>
Here's the list of the most important changes:
- improved compatibility with Windows Vista SP0/SP1
- attempt to solve the "Windows Media Player using a red skin" problem
- Firewall: improved compatibility with uTorrent
- improved the sample submission process
- introduced new CreditAlert feature (US customers only)
<snip>
Thanks
Vlk

Then I wonder, a) as a UK user, b) who hasn't opted in and c) there is no reference anywhere in the UI of Settings for the CreditAlert feature; why the creaditmonitor.log is created and more importantly why there it is trying to start credit monitor thread and why it is constantly rechecking to see if there is a Subscriber ID or if has been an Install Event when the feature isn't/shouldn't be present.

So whilst it appears that it is smart enough to detect that I'm not a US user and not have the feature in the installation, that doesn't appear to have blocked the monitoring event and creation of the creditmonitor.log file and the constant checking.

CreditAlert monitoring for Non-US users.

I also have a log file named "creditmonitor.log" in "C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log" directory.
It seems this log is add every OS boot (I have only 4 entries that indicate 6/22 and 6/29). I'm now using 6.0.1184 (not rebooted yet after updating).
Main: Win10 Pro 2004 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 20 Premier Beta / Comodo Firewall 12
Mobile: Win10 Pro 2004 32bit, Vista SP2 32bit / Core 2 Duo SU9300 1.2GHz / 4GB RAM / Avast 20 Free / Windows Firewall Control

"US users" doesn't mean "English version" - you can live in US and have a Chinese version installed.
What is the problem with the log? It basically just says that you didn't register for that option, so nothing is going to happen.
