    Still have the non-visible components bug. The 2016 > '17 fix still works fine though.

    That's weird. I have no idea what's going on with this one. I also don't know how they managed to break something this trivial that worked fine for years.

    Just one simple question LOL

    Do you recommend use default install settings and then apply your custom config? Some other use postede this but I guess that you forgot to answer...

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, when you install avast!, you get default settings :) If you htink different shields, it only applies to those which are installed. If you only have File System Shield, it'll only apply for that one. I didn't extend settings to anything else except basic shields and settings.

    @RejZoR The config doesn't work with latest version of Avast Free Antivirus (17.8.2318), can you upload a new config? Thanks!

    The problem is not on my end. avast! team screwed something up with v17 release and from their latest words, they won't be fixing this anytime soon. They are bringing in some new changes and that will fix this problem. Which might take a month or two. Basically, I'm expecting it to get fixed in avast! v18. Which is rather disappointing...

    I also don't get it why running my 2016 config file first (and not even applying it) fixes the issue with v17...

    On the Av comparatives site Avast's firewall passed all tests {though results are from 2014} PC Mag. review {2017}has a lot of good things to say,they give Avast"s Firewall a plus rating, calling it robust,take a look..gl
