WinXP SP3 hangs after typing UserPW after automatic upgrade to AV_free 7.0.1426.
Same after aswclear.exe in protected mode & fresh install.
Only power cycle helps.
Had to go back to 6.0.1367.0 .
System has all required patches from MS and Adobe (find output from msinfo32.exe as att.).

1) Why does 7.0.1426 not work anymore?

2) AfIk avast does not keep previous program versions. Obviously they should!

Same experience here
Fresh install Windows XP pro + SP3
Free Avast installed version 7.0.1407 then updated to  7.0.1426
When windows try to boot it freeze and nothing worked. Already uninstalled by Avast uninstall software from safe mode and reinstall Avast but when it updated to new version 7.0.1426 windows freeze on boot...
At-last I had to remove Avast...!

Something wrong with Avast new update 7.0.1426
Hope you can solve these issues


Thanx for taking the time

I am running into the same problem.  Running WinXP SP3 (32 bit) and for the life of me cannot get Program 7.0.1426 (or any other version of 7 for that matter) to run.  Keeps locking up XP at the progress banner every time.  Have uninstalled Webroot (my prior A/V) and in Safe Mode have used the Avast Uninstaller program in Safe Mode, starting with v4 all the way up through v7, and even a fresh install of Avast! 7 has made any difference.

Seems to me this might've been the reason why I switched to Webroot from Avast on my XP machine back when version 6.x came out--even though I'm currently running Avast on all my other machines.

**UPDATE**

I've spent almost 7 hours working through this, and still no dice.  Looks like I'm going back to Webroot. 

Dear Avast!

There's no denying your product does work very well, but I cannot understand why so many of your updates (in v6 and now v7) have been so problematic.  There is no way that the average user would ever be able to work through these issues.  Heck, I've been working with operating systems for almost 20 years, and I still can't figure out this latest problem with your v7 product locking up WinXP SP3.  I'm not maintaining license for multiple A/V products, so when renewal time comes early next year, I'm moving all my machines over to Webroot.  No hard feelings; I just don't have time for this :)

Hello. And avast internet security 7 and will be compatible with Windows 8 Release Preview? In the history of the version 7.0.1426 it is written, that so far as is compatible with Windows 8 Consumer Preview...!!!

Only because the Release Preview is relatively new, but there are several avast users also using the win8 release preview, even though it isn't written in the history.

To put it in a different way, avast! 7 is compatible with Windows 8 and has been since the first Consumer Beta Release.
It did not work on the Developers Preview.  :'(

Only because MS blocked avast! (MS only allowed MSE I believe) not because of compatibility.

It works perfectly for me on XP SP3 but then I don't and never have used a password for Windows.

@ Timo1745

Are you sure you remove all traces of Webroot SecureAnywhere ? To use Add/Remove programs might not be enough.

Follow HowardR procedure to remove all traces of webroot from your Comp and then try to reinstall Avast!

http://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-SecureAnywhere-Antivirus/SecureAnywhere-and-Webroot2011-installed-together/td-p/136

Install Avast! from scratch again.

Download and save to your desktop aswclear : http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

Download and save a fresh copy of Avast!.

Be sure to have your lincense handy if running a paid version:

http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe

Use aswclear.exe in safe mode for any Avast! you may have had before and then for v. 7. Reboot after each uninstall.

Reinstall fresh copy of Avast! and reboot.

Good luck.

happy avast user

Hi all,

happy avast user here, or should I say unhappy and sad avast user now. :( :(

The reason I say this is because Avast! does not update for me now from time to time and as a result I have had to uninstall avast  completely uncountable times now.

Avast is set on automatic update for virus definitions and each time I have reinstalled Avast it automatically updated twice then after that I have to manually update it even though it is set on automatic update.
Can someone from Avast PLEASE tell me WHY this is happening to me?

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you

Lot of comments in only two days.

I am glad I stopped using avast! Beta's and stayed on the release track. 8)  No problems for me with 7.0.1426 except for the IE10 Flash ax statistics reporting issue.

Yes a lot of comments, but not so many issues as posts.

Personally I have no problem using avast beta's I have been for over eight years and no serious issue at all. If no one uses the beta on a wide range of systems then who will benefit.

So I can't see why you even bother to post in the beta topic if you aren't going to take part in the beta trial.

You have a short memory or maybe a selective short memory.  I was using Betas up until the release of .1426 and complained about the problems with the Betas.  It was you I as I recall that commented at the time that if you don't want problems you should stay away from using the Beta.    So my comment here was to show that I took your advice and and am glad I did despite your forgetfulness on the subject :)

As far as people who do use the Betas which are necessary for a software developer to have, ISTM in this case with avast! people who use the Betas and are the first to point out a problem with them should earn points depending on the severity of the problem they point out.   After they have accumulated so many of these "Beta User Points" they should be allowed to convert them into a dollar equivalent toward the purchase of an avast! product.  Excellent goodwill and really good way to encourage Beta users to really put a Beta to the test.

Yes you have chosen to stay away from betas, so I simply can't understand your commenting in the beta topic basically implying that there are problems with this one when you haven't use it.
