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

Just updated via GUI and everything seems to be working fine in my Windows 7 SP1 PC... I will give it a try in my XP Home Edtion SP3 PC.

Thanks for all the efforts to continue to provide such a great security product... "The Best for me ever"..

Hi, I unfortunately see same 100% CPU utilisation problem, mentioned to be resolved in version 6.0. It is not!
I removed now behaviour shield, as was recommended, now need to restart to see if it helps. If not -- I'll have to remove othervise nice Avast. I have W7 SP1 Ultimate 64-bit, with i7 CPU 6GB RAM.

Windows XP H.E. SP 3 Updated via UI from version 6.0.1125 took two minutes not including re-start.

Thanks to the Developing Team and all Beta Testers. Congratulations on a job well done.
