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...

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 removed it because i can't have Twitter because someone "stole" my nickname and i don't use Facebook. Besides, what's the point of social features in antivirus software. It's like having Twitter and Facebook in a jet fighter. It's not relevant.

DO NOT USE THIS LATEST RELEASE IT IS FLAWED!
There may well be more issues with this Beta than we're used to, but what do mean by "LATEST RELEASE" is flawed? 

I could not surf the Net with it.

It doesn't matter anymore. There is no need to keep alive an issue with a BETA version that it is NO LONGER VALID. Let's move on.

If Avast would release a Beta to replace the one they pulled we can move on.

Anyway, what's the point in publishing a file so flawed it lacks major features EVEN THOUGH BETA. It's a lack of respect, a minimal testing before release is required in AILWIL lab. Avast is showing a DOWNHILL trend I have never seen before. Even november http://www.av-comparatives.org/en/comparativesreviews/detection-test posts bad results for Avast (AGAIN). Let's try at least to give STABLE Betas to the Avast Community! ;D :P
Avast protects well!!!

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.

It's a known problem, but only for some users.
Wait for the next update. (See page one of this thread.)

I also had problem with Avast GUI sound dll, which resulted in AvastUI.exe not loading at system start.
