    Avast 6 Public Beta is now available

    Please visit the following page on their forum for download links, instructions, etc




    How to install it
    Just run the setup executable (links above). This version needs to be installed from scratch, i.e. updating from a previous version of avast won't work. This will be fixed relatively soon - however, for now, the only option is to really uninstall the version you're using (if any), reboot, and install this beta.

    Also, if you have already used a previous beta of the standalone WebRep, it's better to uninstall it before installing avast 6.

    What's new
    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

    Known issues
    - Help files not updated yet
    - Localizations incomplete yet
    - SafeZone not yet accessible (Pro AV / IS only)
    - WebRep only available for IE and Firefox (Chrome is coming soon)
    - Firewall: per-application packet rules not yet accessible
    - Firewall: uTorrent conflict not yet resolved

    The firewall is available in the Avast Internet Security only meanwhile this thread is about the free version of Avast which lacks it.
    I also tend to agree that Avast's and as well as Eset's Firewalls are weak compared to Kaspersky Security Suite

    Yeah...I agree to that also....but it's light though that's why some favors it. I also hope they add a "terminate a connection" in AIS..though you can use a third party app to do that.

    I really wouldn't take LanGuy99 so called tests seriously with as much as a grain of salt.

    How's updating with avastFree ver6.0.1000? A friend is asking if I have problems with auto-update and manual updates but I use AIS ver6.0.1000. He runs Win 7 64bit with AvastFree.

    Anyone experiencing this..?
