What's new
Most notable improvements include:
- stability improvements in the Behavior Shield
- an attempt to solve the compatibility issue with MBAM Pro
- improvements in the rootkit scanner
- solved a vulnerability in AavmKer4.sys (Windows 2000/XP only)
- firewall: low-level packet rules are back in the Expert settings
- new languages: Traditional Chinese, Swedish, Korean, Bulgarian, Hungarian. This makes the current number of supported languages 16

Bottom line: we're hoping that this build will finally solve the remaining bsod/hang issues.

It never has in any version. They haven't built the boot time scan to work with x64 as of yet. They say someday, who knows when though.

Hello Yowan,

Yeah, the boot scan only works when Avast is installed in a 32-bit OS instead. There is currently no support for it in a 64-bit OS yet.

There is nothing called as Boot-Scan in KIS2010.
