Hi all,

it's my pleasure to announce the general availability of a new official build of avast, version 6.0.1203.

Here's the list of most important changes:
- improved compatibility with Windows Vista SP0/SP1 (activation issues)
- attempt to solve the "Windows Media Player using a red skin" problem
- Firewall: solved the compatibility problem with uTorrent
- improved load time of WebRep IE plugin
- fixed a bug in Google Chrome WebRep plugin causing excessive CPU usage
- improvements in the silent installer
- improved the CommunityIQ sample submission process
- improved detection/removal of the most stubborn rootkits (TDL family)
- various stability and compatibility improvements in the sandbox module
- added new CreditAlert feature (US customers only)
- added Thai and Serbian language packs


You can use the built-in product updater or download links on our main website.

Of course, thanks to all the beta testers for their hard word.


Thanks
Vlk
