Pre-release 6.0.1027 released.

information   Information

we will soon be releasing a new program update of avast. And as usual, we're making it available for public testing a few days before the official release. Edit: now updated to build 6.0.1027.

This is hopefully going to be a smooth service release, designed really just to fix some of the issues of the original v6.0.1000 build.

Here's the list of the most important changes:
- solved an incompatibility with ZoneAlarm (WinXP)
- improved installation of the WebRep plugins (especially Firefox)
- solved a crash condition in the avast sandbox
- setup programs now smaller by ~20%
- Community features and the Welcome screen can now be turned on/off directly from program settings
- solved an incompatibility with Outpost firewall
- solved a bug related to the AutoSandbox offer (WinXP)
- gadget can now be removed by simply closing it
- new setup icons

And new in v6.0.1027:
- attempt to fix new compatibility problems with GameGuard and sXe _rootkits_
- SafeZone improvements
- localization updates (including WebRep)
- improved sandbox logging
- SafeZone is now a standalone setup package (can be installed/uninstalled separately)

I enjoy using avast. However the only problem I have is when you have scan that is set to go off at a specific time, you get a notification that does not go away and tells you how much it has scanned. Any idea how to fix this problem?
