Hi Avastians,

It improves a performance of such PC and solves some compatibility issues. This mode is turned on automatically if you install Avast on PC, where is installed another AV.

All other functionality is working as usual.
What's new:

Added SafeZone browser, Security browser extension and SafePrice extension to Settings->Components for better management

Fixed:
+ BSOD for Skylake processor running Windows 10 Anniversary Update
+ Randomly opening Avast UI bug
+ SafePrice browser extension component is not installed during update when Browser extension was not installed in the previous version
+ Compatibility problems with PICO(Bash) processes on Windows 10 Anniversary Update
+ Incorrectly displaying firewall network profile notification
+ Avast is correctly recognized in Windows Security Center after upgrade to Windows Anniversary Update

Preferred Solution: Avast! version: 12.3.2279 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

Download links:

Known issues:
+ Some UI parts are not fully finished yet, excuse glitches
+ SmartScan and Browser Cleanup not finished
+ UI glitches in some expiration messaging dialogs
+ Web shield problems on Win 10 internal preview

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

RELEVANCY SCORE 54

Hi all,
we just released new AVAST beta with a few hotfixes.
Again, we would like to ask for your help with testing our new licensing backend. If you are willing to help, please see this new thread about licensing changes in the beta channel:
New licensing in the beta channel

FIXED:

- Hotfixes of a few non-fatal crashes (non-necessary dumps created in the log folder)
- Avast does not recognize Cleanup license after update (fixed via UI update channel for release as well)

Download links:

...gets loaded over the preview version? Will it be upgradeable without destroying or overwriting files, folders, settings, and installed programs?

I've never tried a preview version of an OS and then bought the released version.

Does anyone know?

It's really going to depend on whether they follow the same process they did with Windows 7. In that case, it was entirely possible to upgrade from the RC to the full release, but it wasn't as straight forward as it might have been. In all honesty, you'll probably save yourself a lot of grief if you do a clean install, upgrading Operating Systems at the best of times, is something to be avoided where possible.

Version 4.10
Released on 22 May 2014.

These are the changes to Sandboxie since version 4.08:
The Excel clipboard problem "The picture is too large and will be truncated." has been fixed.

Sandboxie is now built under Visual Studio 2010 and uses newer versions of the Microsoft libraries. Two new security features have been enabled for all Sandboxie binaries: DEP (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... -questions) and ASLR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_sp ... domization) .

Fixed the following startup errors on the Dell Venue and other Win 8.1 tablets. SBIE2336 Error in GUI server: 11 / C0000021?. SBIE2335 Initialization failed for process Start.exe 88/0?

Fixed for Windows 8.1 update KB2919355.

Fixed several additional C0000142 (STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED) bugs. These could also show up as "CRT not initialized" or "DLL failed to initialize" errors and could also sometimes cause the sandboxed application to crash on start.

Incompatibility with FFX 27 and Avast that caused FFX to run with no visible windows.

Chrome crash when reporting an issue under Tools->Report an issue...

Fixed a problem with DFS drives (Distributed File System)

The "InjectDll" setting would sometimes cause DLL initialization to fail with the message "CRT not initialized" or "DLL failed to initialize".
