Updated over previous beta :) Now it works seamlessly...

However I had a problem with previous beta when I do play Flash games on Google Chrome. It was lagging my PC. But now everything is fine with OFFICIAL release :)

Cheers...

Vlk or Igor, what exactly was improved for the on-close scanning? Nothing special, i'm just curious.

Interesting, there was the same problem with the first beta version, but they fixed that later.

Thanks for the update, VLK. Unfortunately, I must report a bug. I updated over b1289 using the installer (not via GUI) and the installer TOTALLY ignored my prev. version, didn't offer the usual options "upgrade - uninstall - repair", it behaved as if I had no AV AT ALL.

Actually, this is how it now behaves. The installer doesn't explicitly give you the "Update" option, but all your settings and licenses are kept when you do the install (so effectively, it is the same).

However, this has some advantages. For example, when you now download the IS installer a run it on top of Avast Free AV, it will indeed update the installation to an IS trial. Previously, it wouldn't do anything.


Thanks

Problem with Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_29 (current version). Java applets run in browsers (Opera or Google Chrome) and fail and hang system or run and hang system.  The lovely Java applet on www.thewoodheadsite.org.uk will not run at all (view this if you like railways).  The Tweak Test applet on www.dslreports.com ran but the system hanged.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3.  I updated from Avast! free 6.0.1289 to 6.0.1367.

System also running Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 7.5.1.  System works perfectly with Avast! free 6.0.1289 and I can view www.thewoodheadsite.org.uk in all its glory.

ADDENDUM
I find that this problem also occurs with the bare bones Outpost Firewall Free (no Web Control, etc.)

Hello, I Have a question regarding the new processes' exclusion in the Web Shield.

Just in case I want to exclude all the executables of an application, could I add for example this line in Process to Exclude:
 
C:\Program Files\Online Armor\*

Will it work? Or maybe should I need to add all the executables one by one?

Thank you in advance

Sorry, that would not work! You must list each executable you want to exclude from scanning.

Thank you very much for your prompt replies, lukor and Tech.

So if I understand correctly I must add each executable I want to exclude from scanning. It's not currently possible to exclude whole folders.

And I don't think it would be in a near future. File Shield can exclude folders/files. Web Shield works with processes (executables running) so I think the exclusion will need to be done one by one, like Lukor said.

Any idea when this is going to pushed through the automatic update channel assuming we have the "automatic update" option checked in update settings?

Generally, program updates are released on 7-day cycle to balance the server loads (~180 million users).

Updated from within Avast this morning. Apparently when it is done that way, the updater
must just overwrite the old files with the new ones, as an actual setup installer does not run.
Works good that way. And I usually download the full installer to keep in case it is needed.
