    Don't get confused with the Beta in the avast! window title! It says Beta but it's almost the final release!
    It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).
    [When you reinstalling from older beta, we recommend to use aswClear -]

    I have 3 days left before my license expires for avast Internet security ver.7.

    Is there any reason I should not download the latest release candidate ?

    From what I see on the Avast forum the final release should be Feb 28th.

    You might be able to hold off until the final release so you don't have to install the RC before your current license expires?

    I would make a System Backup Image before an update like this.

    Latest Avast 8 stops online youtube videos playing if "hardware accelorator" is on in Flash settings, at least it did on my pc. All I get is a blank green screen with audio. Had to uninstall after using Avast for many years.

    Anyone had this issue ?
