David,

I presume Dwarden is talking about Avast! updating causing lag when gaming, not when booting.

I don't make an assumption as over several posts he never once mentioned gaming. There than his gaming banner in his signature, which unfortunately states nothing of his system spec. Though I haven't come across a serious gamer that hasn't got a high performance system and I wouldn't have though that would have much of an impact on a gaming system.

But for some considerable time the auto update has been throttled so that it doesn't consume too much resources (I think it is set to use less than 30%).

Well, he mentioned lag. And hearing that from someone working in the game industry I think I am close :)

well i just hope they stop with the popup ad for trying AIS and such.

the Avast market is good enough for people to try Avast products.

so please Avast Team dont use the Avast ad anymore. Thank you

Hi Avast team,

Thank you for this new beta version of Avast! (6.0.1352) I am testing it and find that it is working well for me.
However I have noticed that the notification box does not pop up when the automatic update has been received and I used to get the pop up box on my screen after every update, all three boxes are checked (ticked) 1. Ask for reboot when needed.  2. Show notification box after automatic update.  3 Show notification box if an error occurs, but I don't get ANY pop ups on my screen at all. :(  :(

Thanks

The popups are working for me on this beta. No problems.
Did you reduce the time they're shown?

Now updated to build 1354.
Users of the previous beta can go to this build by simply invoking the in-product update feature.

Main changes include speed optimizations in the updater, little fix in the Web and Network Shields, and added localizations.

Thanks

Hello vlk

I've just updated from 1352 to 1354 ... and found some issues - after the update I've lost the sandbox and the antispam modules from the GUI. Also no firewall tab and I cannot access the Resident Protection tab on the interface (the tab just won't open). I'm using Win 7 Pro x64  :-\

edit - also I cannot stop the program (the options from the tray icon does not work)

After this update (1354), now my inernet connection is almost useless, I have to reload pages most of the time, because I keep losing connectivity.
Plus, the SUMo issue still persists.

Both under xp64.

Bottom line: avoid this update.

it's unrelated, has nothing with boot time ... the computer is running for days ...

btw. i noticed avast update is already low priority, so it must be something else done by the main engine component

Update from UI on avast free 6.0.1352 to 1354 went fine on XP Pro.

Autosandbox present in additional options and avast Shield Control, disable shields (program) stops and starts as expected.

Update to AIS 1354 results: update went fine, reboot as required. Problem#1 Real-Time Shields tab does not work (nothing happens when you click); Problem #2 Firewall tab does not show. Windows Action Center does not complain so apparently this is a GUI problem only. Working on Win 7 Pro 64.
Previous v1352 was working fine ???
