Sorry man that was my mix up!

No worries ; )

The only purpose of that "Do not use Chrome as Avast! default browser" as also posted by Tetsuo
"is to let Avast! open links using Chrome or alternatively the" system "default browser. No relations with Safe Zone at all."

And this is correct!

Thank you for your confirmation - I was not totally sure...

What about the BSoD that some of us got??

Is the new version use more or less memory usage?

That was one of the areas which I believe was addressed, but you would have to check it out if you weren't involved in the beta release prior to this update.

Memory usage is broadly the same as 6.0.1125 (and the beta builds) on my systems, they were never high.


Oh ok, thank you very much :)

Just updated myself, via the UI.  While I'm not crazy about WebRep in its current format (i.e., showing only a site's popularity), I was happy to see that after rebooting Firefox automatically recognized (and reactivated) the updated plugin.

After this update, Outlook Express won't send/receive emails unless uncheck Avast's 'scan for incoming/outgoing messages' boxes. Makes no difference if firewall on or off.

Lets first find out why it isn't working in your other topic before we say it is related to this build as you said that for a time it worked.

Not quite sure how, but I fixed it. Removing and replacing Avastsvc.exe didn't work but then I removed "avast!antivirus" from the firewall list. Several avast things were listed in the Avast folder and I didn't know which to add so I added 'avastUI.' I don't know what that is, but the avast!antivirus' then reappeared in the firewall list and now can send and receive email with both incoming/outgoing mail checked... I wouldn't have known its a firewall issue and to look there... thanks.

Puran Free is what I use, and it works flawlessly with all versions of avast!. The boot time defrag not only defrags files that can not be defraged while running, but it also defrags your entire drive too. It is awesome, give it a try and pocket your hard earned $!

I use Smart Defrag it is also free and works for me.  I will however take a look at Puran :)

Just to help confuse the issue even further, I like MyDefrag and its GUI interface, MyDefragGUI.

Does anyone know how to get Avast to start up again after being "Adrift at sea" and when the "Fix it" and "Start program" buttons do not work? Help would be greatly appreciated, as the update appear thus far appears to have killed Avast  :(

Repair dont work ?

I've tried repairing through "Uninstall programs" and that does not work.

Try deinstalling the features that not work and then reinstall it. That works for me.

"Do not use Chrome as avast! default browser" is not translated to french...

It's also not translated in the German version. ;)

Hello

Since the upgrade to version the Behavior Shield does not trace many incidents


It is run but before he recorded me 14 incidents when you start Windows, now just 1 secdrv.sys

This is normal or a malfunction.

I use Windows 7 Starter Edition

Thank you.

A new visual bug in Avast GUI is discovered. To reproduce it, make the following steps:

Quote
1) Open the Avast main window and go to the tab with types of scans (screenshot 1)

2) Expand the field with scan from Windows Explorer ... AND DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING IN THE WINDOW (screenshot 2)

3) Close the window

4) Re-open the window: the scrolling bar disappeared and the Quick scan field is hidden under the tab's title (screenshot 3)

5) Expand any other field and the scrolling bar returns (screenshot 4)

This bug was noticed by Russian-speaking users in Avast Free and AIS on Vista and Windows 7.

         
May the FOSS be with you!
