OK, I will for now remove the 6.0.1354 files from the download locations until the problem is resolved (tomorrow daytime).

does this mean we getting a new beta within 24 hours or stable?

There may well be more issues with this Beta than we're used to, but what do mean by "LATEST RELEASE" is flawed?

I guess I am fortunate. I upgraded to v6.0.1354 and have not had any problems. All the real time shields are on. My OS is Windows 7 (X86).

The 1354 free version is working fine for me, some of my programs are starting a bit faster with this version which is good  ;D.
Still keeping an eye on the issue of the system shut down unexpected problem to see if it returns with this version, a little to early to tell yet though.

You have to turn on the community features in settings to see the market tab in the UI RejZoR.

What's the point of having twitter and facebook nonsense enabled to see the avast! Market ? It makes no sense at all...

"avast! recommendations" should be turned into separate "avast! Market" checkbox...

Installed 6.0.1354 no problems at all. Have Windows XP Home with Windows7 Firewall control. The only thing that I can criticise, is that Weprep in Internet Explorer give a whole toolbar to be able to show. Having an extra toolbar is not good on my NetBook, as I loose about 8mm from my page screen view.
Why can't Webrep be tucked away as it is on Google Chrome toolbar?

New version(6.0.1354) installed itself without any problems via GUI. It seems to be working fine, although I can't access Real-time shields tab in GUI and stop real-time shields via tray icon.

There was some discussion about this before. It has always been this way. Essentially, to make the icon changeable, so you can have different colours, it has to be on a toolbar.
Since that was the point of WebRep, that is how it has to be.

Couldn't agree more, when that social network branding cr*p came out I hated it. As soon as options were there to remove it, it was history. So to put something totally unconnected under that heading doesn't make sense as I doubt I was alone in removing this twitter/facebook branding.

So for me the loss of the Market is a small price to pay (no pun intended) if it meant getting the twitter/facebook branding junk. So as RejZoR said this needs its own checkbox.

I noticed that I can not access the Real-time shields tab in GUI either on my Windows 7 system but I can stop real-time shields via tray icon though.

Working fine on my XP Pro system.  ;D
