There's no hint in the release notes but could it be that the scan performance is much better? A quick scan is about one and a half minutes faster.

As a paid user, I can not stress enough, that paid users had better not be subjected to pop-ups and advertising from CreditAlert. I have no problem if avast! implements this strategy for the Free version, but if it happens in the paid versions, I will look elsewhere for protection.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the previous v6.0 builds.

Only the major changes are mentioned in the list in the first post.

Do you mean that performance improvements were integrated?

No I mean exactly what I said read the first post other than what is listed I have no idea what has been incorporated.

I haven't noticed any discernible difference in the Quick scan duration, just ran two quick scans one after the other and both were slower than my last scan before the update, but we are talking seconds so well within any margin of data differences..

1. No I mean exactly what I said read the first post other than what is listed I have no idea what has been incorporated.

2. I haven't noticed any discernible difference in the Quick scan duration, just ran two quick scans one after the other and both were slower than my last scan before the update, but we are talking seconds so well within any margin of data differences..

1. Ok, i thought you have more informations because you wrote "major informations".
2. Before updating the scan time was about 10 minutes now it's about 8 and a half minute. And this was not only by one quick scan.

i LOVE avast but have to agree, honestly this should be something that is part of the custom installer and can be unchecked and NOT installed as i will never use this on any of my systems as well as i personally know people who have had very bad experiences with watchdog in the past...if it becomes intrusive i will look elsewhere, why oh why do companies keep adding junk to great programs (imo)

I am having a problem.  I installed the new update of avast yesterday as it requested I do so.  After that my computer froze and I had to restart. It still froze.  I restarted in safe mode and uninstalled the new avast.  Problem fixed.  But how can I make it work?  I want to use avast I have been using the free program for years.  I am running windows 7  any help would be appreciated.
