    Gaving never used Avast before I nearly jumped out of my skin a few minutes ago when Avast announced in loud stentorian tones that it had updated itself. I had no idea it had a verbal updater.
    You should give "Pirate Talk" a try, its really fun to have Pirates yelling all the time.

    Find it listed in settings > languages > scroll to Pirate Talk

    That's a bit intrusive. Definitely happy with Eset and there NON-intrusive practices.
    The voice notifications can be turned off.

    The default volume level is loud imho, but it can be adjusted so it is not as loud.
    I like a quieter audible alert so I can be notified when I am not in front of the display and would miss a visual message...

    Avast 2014 9.0 Beta 1


    Avast! Free Antivirus represents the best free antivirus protection currently available on the market. This edition is FREE OF CHARGE for non-commercial & home use.

    What's new in avast! Free Antivirus 2014 Beta 1:

    Protection-related features and improvements

    New DeepScreen technology allows avast! to make more intelligent decisions about new/unknown files. DeepScreen is a successor of AutoSandbox, now upgraded with some additional new technologies such as dynamic binary translation and dyna-gen announced earlier.
    New Hardened mode for stricter lockdown scenarios. This is a new mode that is recommended especially for novice users (such as your grandmas): it automatically blocks execution of binaries that would normally be deepscreened (Moderate level) or even allows only execution of programs that are well-known to FileRep (Aggressive level). In a way, it brings the whitelisting concept to the consumer AV space.
    Improved cloud scanning features and crowdsourced analysis of suspicious items. This includes new, optimized mechanism for collecting data from our sensors.
    Continuously streaming update (CSU) technology for up-to-minute detections. This is not entirely new for v2014, but we now have really buttoned up the whole streaming update infrastructure to allow for reliable, uninterrupted service. We’re currently doing 350-400 updates a day, which equals to one update in roughly every 3.75 minutes, 24x7, 365 days a year. Streaming updates can now also carry more types of definitions than before.
    Improved cleaning of malware. This applies to standard malware as well as rootkits and file infectors.

    I'm waiting for Avast to fix 1489. I'm still using 1483 because 1489 disables IE10.

    That's strange, IE 11 works fine.

    Hi Lady,
    I'm running 1489 on a couple of systems with IE10, and no problems here.
    Has the issue you have with IE10 been reported to Avast?

    That's not a good thing when a security suite blocks Microsoft programs ?

    True, but any Company or product can have "unexpected" problems with a new update, version, ...
    IMHO it's more of of issue that Lady has not heard anything back after reporting the problem.
    What does that say about the "Company/Product" support? (and I do use Avast)

    Maybe I'm spoiled by the help and support I see in SF
