Hi all

NEW Avast Version 21.3 (April 2021)


Hi, all. Please welcome the newest version of Avast AV: 21.3 (21.3.2459)

Major public announcements
  • Better scan performance — We’ve made a lot of small performance improvements to various security components (running on background)
  • Improved Rescue Disk — We’ve added a portable web browser to our Rescue Disk so you can search the web even when Windows isn’t working
  • Fewer distractions — We no longer show pop-up messages when your antivirus is open
  • Passive Mode fix — We’ve fixed a bug that would sometimes disable Passive Mode soon after it was turned on

Bug-fix and improvement highlights for hardcore fans:
  • Because of an expiring MS certificate for signing drivers, we had to block updates and installations of users with outdated/unpatched versions of Win7 (up to KB3033929). Unless they update their OS, they will stay on 21.2 version.
  • Implemented Countdown (auto-close) of Cyber Capture dialogs
  • Additional Rescue Disk improvements (postponing toolkit installation until MSI installation finishes, adding retries to downloading RCD files, etc.)
  • Fixed cases when both our Firewall and Windows firewall were running simultaneously
  • Fixed issue where the restart dialog didn’t appear in Silent Mode
  • Fixed issues where our uninstall survey was not displayed
  • Fixed issue when the UI didn’t show the correct state of IDP (Behavioral Shield) features
  • Some of those scan optimizations mentioned in our public release notes include: Startup, registry callbacks, behavioral events, on-exec DLLs scanning, identified opportunities to skip some scans, etc.)
As usual a big thanks goes to the team for yet another successful release!
