Beta's are never going to be perfect as that is what a beta is, if you cant handle the heat get out of the kitchen and wait for the stable release.

For heavens sake it a sodding beta, I have never heard so much whinging, if you don't like or accept what can happen with beta builds then don't take part.

I have been using avast for over seven and a half years and the betas have generally been stable, unlike many other betas. Essentially the problem is with the installation setup file. When I had the thing installed it worked just fine on the tests that I managed to do before actually testing the program update, which rolled back to 6.0.1289.

So I await the change in that installation package and I will try it again.

+100......yeah, its not a perfect Beta.  Maybe Avast! spoils people by releasing bug-free Betas too much. ;)

But seriously......don't you get a Beta anticipating problems?  And trying (almost hoping) to find them?  Beta software is not released so people can get "the newest hottest software" (but I swear thats why half the people like it).....you are volunteering to be a guinea pig.
Signature?  But I gots no pen....

Well, you (maybe?) missed that all others reported the same behaviour as you did. ;)
Else, you (maybe?) wouldn't have asked this:

Was it only me or all settings return to the defaults? What's up with this beta?  >:( >:( :(
