    On their forum it said that they had well over a million beta users when they released this morning.

    So the behavior blocker is what it is? I guess it is BB extra lite? I never saw any activity in mine.

    Will the beta 5.0.373 auto update to 5.0.377 or do we need a fresh install ?

    Wow,the best free AV has been updated and it should/will probably stop many people to buy a paid-av.
    the real part is the suite,lets hope it does well

    The only action I have ever seen is from the shield starting up. I guess as people start testing the program more we'll see if it catches anything.

    Did you look at the logs to see what it was related to? Mine just said the shield was starting up. (not actually analyzing a threat)

    I'm pretty excited about the new version release.
    But WTF is up with the guy in the trash can on the avast web site?
    It says, "Protecting your identity" and so who is that supposed to be in the can? :D
