Hi all,

New beta version is here: AVAST 2015 R3 Beta 2 (build number 2015.10.3.2220)

Changes from Beta 1:
  • Fixed problems with HIPS - now remembers choice and not so often prompts
  • SafeZone is back - the original one for now..
  • Fixed issues with WebShield, when some page didn't load or were loading too long
  • Beta updates are now delivered automatically to beta testers, just restart needed

Changes from public version:
  • Grimefighter is now redone and called Cleanup.
    - runs without need of reboot
    - much faster
    - free for beta testers
    - runs on more devices (better compatibility)
  • Improved Windows 10 compatibility
  • Ability to check compatibility issues with other antivirus software
  • Host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS): an installed software package which monitors a single host for suspicious activity by analyzing events occurring within that host
  • StreamFilter with HTTPS scanning is now available also for Windows XP/Vista
  • NG is not using Volume Shadow Copy Service anymore
  • Beta version will now be updated automatically once new beta version released

Known issues:

  • Scheduler for Cleanup doesn't work
  • Sandbox doesn't work on Windows 10

Please test the following scenarios:

1. Run Cleanup either via Scan->Scan for performance issues or via Smart Scan, clean your HDD, optimize registry
2. Try to run Cleanup on machines where GrimeFighter couldn't run in past
3. Install Avast on the latest public build of Windows 10
4. Install Avast on machine where is already running some other antivirus - you should get some warning during installation
5. Run Smart scan on machine with more antiviruses, smart scan should show you some compatibility warning with offer to remove the other AV (currently we detect just some AVs). If detected try to uninstall them.
6. Try browsing on https sites on machines with Windows XP or Vista
7. Play with it as much as you can and please report any problems you find ;-)

How to install:

1. If you have installed some beta version before you can update it to this latest version via Settings->Update->Program.

2. Or you can download and install from here:

How to provide feedback
Please for specific issues set a new topic in the Beta section ( For general open discussion feel free to use this thread.

Avast cleaner:

It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).

To report BSODs, crashes or any other none trivial problems please use new SupportPackage generating tool.

Instructions how to use it can be easily found:

We are looking forward for your feedback!

Thank you
Avast team
