Fixed Issues from Previous BETA
avast! v8 now runs on Win8 too
• XP performance problem solved
• Automatic Profile detection in the firewall on Win7 solved
• No information popup on controlled PC when client is connected via avast! AccessAnywhere
• List of computers shows offline PCs and also those that don’t have AccessAnywhere activated
• Stability issues with Outlook plugin solved
• UI might hang sometimes during connecting to avast! account
• Problems in data shredder solved

Known Issues in this Version
• Problems with upgrading v7 to v8 on Win8 related to the network (we recommend to do a clean install of v8!)
• Translation to other languages is still not 100%
• Some online content does not fit or is not translated yet
• Self defence dialog appears when reinstalling over older builds
• After facebook registration setup might crash so reboot is required to start avast! service
• During softrial gui is not correctly updated
• Trial period could not be activated (update from v7 to v8)
• Missing pre-defined scan jobs (update from v7 to v8)
• AccessAnywhere computer list isn't sometimes refreshed

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