    Avast Pre Release build version number 5.1.874 is available

    ** HAVING ANY ISSUES WITH V5.1.864? Try a new pre-release build 5.1.874 **

    If you're having any kind of issues with the current release build 5.1.864, we recommend trying this one -- hopefully, it will solve your problem.

    Fixes include (but are not limited to):
    - compatibility with Acer control software
    - compatibility with the Game Guard application (although this is still work in progress, because of the hacks Game Guard is using)
    - compatibility with a Dell wireless network adapter
    - various 0xC0000005 and 0xC000007B errors (e.g. with some .NET applications)
    - issues related to upgrades from v5.0 (inactive shields, missing right-click associations, missing 64-bit boot-time scanner etc)
    - other possible hang/crash conditions (relatively rare but possible)
    - performance related issues
    - UI related issues

    Your feedback is appreciated.

    Beta 5.1.884 available.


       Information

    we have just released a new pre-released build of avast, version number 5.1.884. This build is supposed to solve the remaining issues that were not fixed by the previous pre-release version 5.1.874.

    We expect this to be a very short beta test before the update is finally pushed out to everyone (maybe less than 24 hours).

    So, if you're having any kind of issues with the current release build 5.1.864 or 5.1.874, we recommend trying this one -- hopefully, it will solve your problem.

    Fixes, compared to the previous pre-release build 5.1.874, include:
    - solved a compatibility problem with CorelDraw X5
    - solved a problem inserting a license file in the installation wizard

    Your feedback is appreciated.

    First Avast 6.0 Beta released -
    v6.0.934

       Information

    we'll soon be releasing a new version of avast - the long-awaited version 6.0. As usual, we're making the new version available for public testing before it's officially released.

    This is the first beta build of v6 - please treat it as such.


    How to install it
    Just run the setup executable (links above). This version needs to be installed from scratch, i.e. updating from a previous version of avast won't work. This will be fixed relatively soon - however, for now, the only option is to really uninstall the version you're using (if any), reboot, and install this beta.

    Also, if you have already used a previous beta of the standalone WebRep, it's better to uninstall it before installing avast 6.

    What's new
    Main changes/improvements:
    - AutoSandbox suspicious programs will be optionally run sandboxed
    - avast! WebRep browser plugin for website reputation rating; a combination of data from our virus lab and community voting
    - Script Shield now even in the Free AV
    - Site Blocking now even in the Free AV
    - SafeZone a special virtualized area for sensitive transactions (e.g. secure online banking) (paid products only)
    - Restore factory settings command (Settings -> Troubleshooting)
    - Automatic actions in the boot-time scan
    - New compression method in the installer makes the setup packages about 20% smaller.
    - Script Shield now functional even with IE8/IE9 Protected Mode
    - Sidebar gadget
    - Improved stability/compatibility of the Behavior Shield
    - Improvements in the avast! sandbox

    Known issues
    - Help files not updated yet
    - Localizations incomplete yet
    - SafeZone not yet accessible (Pro AV / IS only)
    - WebRep only available for IE and Firefox (Chrome is coming soon)
    - Firewall: per-application packet rules not yet accessible
    - Firewall: uTorrent conflict not yet resolved
