so i tried install this version over Avast 4! install on Windows XP 32bit Sp3 machine

result after reboot was BSOD on boot
(this BSOD does not wait to generate minidump, yet the OS can invoke minidump fine if i do it manually)

only solution to fix was remove C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\aswSnx.sys
then OS boots fine and Avast! seems work fine
With such a large gap inbetween versions it is always recommended to do a clean install since avast 4 to avast 6 are like chalk and cheese.

i said i installed over Avast 4, which includes uninstall and restart, i said the Avast 4 was removed properly
nothing else
the BSOD is related to some issue with the autosandbox or behaviour shield or w/e similar ...

So, tried this version with a fresh install.

Firewall is set to "Ask". It fails utterly to do so. I have accessed the internet from several browsers and applications,run updates from 10+ programs and not one single challenge and there are no Application Rules set by avast for these.

Firewall logs are empty after an hours browsing and using updates etc. and logs are not showing any network connections either.

Go to "Statistics" page and at the bottom left we have a link that says :

Click here to see your complete security reports for the last 30 days.

What this actually does is open a browser window and feed you spam about buying more new products ......... (http://www.avast.com/en-gb/index?utm_source=prg_ise_60_0&utm_medium=prg_lnk&utm_campaign=paid2paid&utm_content=prg_ise_en-gbsecurity-report&p_var=.%2Fprg_ise%2Fen-gb%2Fsecurity-report&p_pro=2&p_vep=6&p_ves=0&p_lqa=0&p_lsu=24&p_lst=0&p_lex=353&p_lng=en&p_lid=en-gb&p_elm=58&p_vbd=1352 )

No, I don't want Password keepers, Backup systems or any other spam thrown at me from the GUI of a security application, I want the application to function and keep things OUT of my PC.

(Tried Repair and a fresh install and it's still the same.)

@AdrianH,

Just for curiosity (and because I might have misunderstood), are you reporting about the current BETA version, or about the current stable?

Had you read the topic you would have seen this question was asked and answered. The landing page for the new monthly security report isn't complete, so essentially you are redirected to the main avast page.

This is one of the beauties of beta testing, some stuff won't quite be ready.

Spelling Error. Not sure what English is used but in North America it's "Coming" not "Comming". If another English is used perhaps having seperate English like English UK, English USA, English Canada

The beta version, that's why I posted in this forum.

Crap, it is still blatant and unacceptable advertising, if the page isn't ready they should have killed the link or had a landing page with a notification.

Avast are adding advertising links to premium products and really annoying customers, I get dozens of queries a week as to why it is there and how to remove these things.

As to beta, this is pre alpha quality at best, the firewall is not doing anything.

Have you run a spell checker over your signature?  ;)

Same here, Craig. :( I was hoping this would have been fixed in this beta, but no change...

Oh, so you already know it is beta and you are *reporting* issues, not just complaining? Good.

To be clear, I might agree with you in some of your comments, but if you want to report issues of this version, please open a new topic and provide additional info so the devs can replicate the problems and develop a solution.

Thanks.

Jekku and craigb, is there something else in the Event Log? Or any minidumps in the \windows\minidump folder?

Thanks
