    New Avast Beta 6.0.989



       Information

    How to install it

    Just run the setup executable (links above). This version can be installed on top of your existing avast installation (4.x/5.x/6.x). Also if you are already running a previous build of avast 6, you can use the built-in program updater.

    What's new in avast 6
    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

    What's new in this beta build 986
    pretty much all the bugs from the previous beta builds should be solved now, with the following exceptions:
    - Firewall: uTorrent conflict not yet fully resolved
    - Firewall: packet rules for applications still don't support ASK and AUTO-DECIDE actions properly.
    - Incorrect context-menu handling in SafeZone
    - Other small visual issues in SafeZone


    What's new in this beta build 989
    - improved update from v5.x (Security Center registration, installation of WebRep plugins, installation of the gadget, ...)
    - improvements in the SafeZone (e.g. the Turn off command on 64-bit Windows, flash in the SafeZone browser , Alt+Tab processing etc)
    - fixes in the gadget (especially on Vista)
    - Welcome screen not shown by default anymore
    - fixes in the Outlook plugin


    Note: WebRep is currently available only for IE and Firefox (Chrome is coming soon
