Avast AV Release-Version [20.10.2442]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Expanded Password Protection - We now protect your passwords in the beta versions of browsers, too. (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and AVG Secure Browser - Premium Security Only)
• Rescue Disk improvements - Windows 7 users can celebrate knowing this feature works for them again, and we've improved its performance and made sure it properly cleans up related .DLLs for all users
• Bug stomping - Just the usual bug fixes that keep your antivirus going strong
• Restart PC dialogue no longer ignores the "Next century" reminder. (Just wait and see…)
• Fixed driver incompatibility with HVCI (AV installation now works when Windows Core Integrity memory isolation is on)
• Cleaned our code to remove obsolete pre-alpha and legacy licensing components
• UI now opens properly on scan results after an Explorer scan finishes (was not behaving properly with UI minimized)
• Fixed a crash that happened in log viewer when logs were too large
• Improved service stability by properly terminating some thread-hooks
• We now allow removing services without exe/dll file (fileless service)
• Got rid of unnecessary reboot required after specific types of detections

Avast AV Beta-Version [21.1.2443]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Multi-detection fix: If you stumbled upon more detections at once, we wouldn't show each one in separate alert window anymore. Alert dialogs will be grouped into one, so there is no pop-up overload. Items are grouped by shield. (This applies to auto-mode, in Ask mode, we still show it one by one)
• New categories and description: Our detections are now grouped in various categories of threats and each alert dialog contains a short description of corresponding category (you can find this in Details section). This will also enable us to continuously turn on PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detections ON by default for our users.
• AlertID: We have placed a small numeric identifier in the footer of the detection dialog, so we can easily search the particular detection in our database and identify it based on the screenshot alone. We are often presented with snapshots from our users but up until now these screens didn't contain sufficient information.
• Not correct information in cyber capture detection dialog
• Detections by identity protection on drivers with custom label
• Missing focus (on top visibility) for identity protection dialogs
• Internet connection status in firewall details was not always properly displayed
• Shell extension (scan in explorer) does not scan all files the link (.lnk) files are pointing to
• Detection dialogs and toasters when higher DPI (dots per inch) is used (screen resolution settings)
• Incorrect license/subscription details/update shown when there is a change

Known issues:
• Possible BSOD due to problems in identity protection driver (internally catched just once on one machine during a month, will fix it in next BETA)
