Preferred Solution: Avast Beta version 2016.12.1.2271 Released

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
sorry for the delay with this beta, but it's finally here. We are now busy working on integration with AVG but I hope you will like the changes coming early next year (and yes HIPS included (wink) ) Main purpose of this beta to test its stability and get your feedback on the new UI. We didn't changed just the "face" but also the framework behind the UI so it gives us now much more flexibility in fixing various issues and bugs in the UI much faster than before.

We listened to the feedback, so there won't be color difference between Free and paid versions and all will be dark. Navigation moved back to the left side, and the window is now larger. We know it's not perfect now and we will work hard in the upcoming weeks to polish it for release quality.

Newest beta version: 12.4.2281

Changes:
+ Fully new UI framework with modern graphics
+ Removed screensaver and desktop gadget
+ Huge internal changes for product stabilization

+ SmartScan and Browser Cleanup not finished

Hello everyone,

We?ve got great news for you today: Avast Cleanup, our PC-cleaning software, is undergoing some big changes. It?s sporting a brand-new design, includes exciting new features, and best of all, is now also standalone, which means you can use it even without downloading our antivirus first.

Of course, it?s going to need a good beta-testing to ensure we get your thoughts, opinions, and insights so we can make the best it can be. So please don?t hesitate to send us your feedback.

It?s important to note there will be three versions of Avast Cleanup standalone: the trial version, which gives you 14 days to try the full Cleanup experience. Afterwards, you?ll automatically begin using the ?free? version, which will only allow you to perform browser cleaning functions. To get full functionality back, you?ll need to buy the paid version.

FEATURES

CLEAN: Clean your browser?s cache, search history, browsing history, and the cookies you?ve been gathering from your time surfing the Web. We also detect add-ons and search engines with poor reputations (or, with a small retention rate among our users) and help you get rid of them. In the trial and paid versions of Cleanup, you also have access to junk cleanup, where we get rid of all the unused junk files on your PC.

OPTIMIZE: In the trial and paid versions of Cleanup, you can tweak the system settings and boot-up options to minimize your computer?s start time. We can also help you get rid of u... Read more

They need to work more on the Suspicious Behavior (HIPS), some malware can bypass it.

The problem is when you download the file from the Mozilla website using the FF browser, when opening the installer file, a warning pops up " the installer comes from an untrusted source, the file is corrupted, click "no"! I save the installer file to the desktop and tried downloading both on-line and off-line with the same result as mentioned above!

Hi all,
Various security applications like Kaspersky, MacAfee, Norton, Panda security, Bitdefender security and many other. these latest versions are designed to make them compatible with the latest Windows operating system, Windows 8. These applications have ability to detect and remove the recent malwares. They are having advanced features that are more powerful then the previous versions. Update your recent security application with the recent one, to secure your PC.

A:beta 2013 version is released of various security app.

A warning is appropriate about beta releases, especially when computer security is involved. The term Beta can mean a wide range of stages in completion of the final product (especially in regard to as yet unreleased W8) and the amount of internal testing made before offering it for public testing. Users should, as a general rule, not depend on beta releases for mission critical functionality for these reasons.

Hi everyone,

new beta version 18.3.2331 (build 18.3.3851) is released.

We are tuning product behavior when subscription is expired. The main impacted component is User Interface and the way the components are shown as well as enabled/disabled. There could be problems like component you have licensed is not shown at all, is not enabled, is still enabled once subscription expired or you can see components available for higher edition etc. Most of the issues have been resolved but still we would be thankful for any report related to this.

Fixed Bugs

Problems with starting the Behavior Shield service
Problems with showing components based on subscription state (as mentioned above)
A few program crashes reported over the client

Known Issues

Sensitive Data Shield component is not enabled after upgrade from Free to higher edition (Internet Security or Premier)
Non-licensed components (usually available for higher edition) may be visible in the Settings ? Components
Shredder and Sandbox items may not be visible in the context menu (although those components are installed and functional)
Avast Passwords:
Passwords are not deleted from Avast Secure Browser after successful import
Missing support of Avast Secure Browser in extension installation toaster
When user imports logins from individual browsers we wrongly report status of pending login deletion for one browser regardless overall status
