    From what I've observed, I assume v.60.1198 is a beta refresh of v6.0.1184.

    Confirmed.
    By the way, the beta is very stable in my system :)

    avast team also released the server beta version and will do the same with the business versions soon.

    I like your avatar, dude. I use to love Jimi (still do). Brings back memories of my cousin and me arguing who's the best guitarist. Me saying Jimi and him Clapton.

    Sorry for going OT. :).

    Later...

    I'm having trouble with the Sandbox settings. Any changes I make are not being saved. Once I exit the settings screen, they change back to the default. Changes made in other modules work correctly. I posted this on the Avast forum, but no response yet from them. Has anyone else seen this issue? o_O

    His performance at Woodstock is the stuff of legends. :thumb:

    As for Avast they are slowly becoming THE free AV. I have it on a laptop so I may try the beta.

    One should never compare the legends. They are both legends of their times. As far as Clayton is concerned "Layla" is my favorite. Layla means "tonight" and is very suggestive.

    Best regards,

    KOR!

    Is anyone here using Raxco PerfectDisk 12 Pro ? I'm having massive performance problems when using PerfectDisk 12 with this beta version of avast! on WinXP SP3 and would like to verify if others have the same issues.

    I was using Raxco PerfectDisk 12 Pro for a short time, but uninstalled it due to file corruption with some of my large database files. The issues were caused by the new OptiWrite feature.

    Yes it does. Avasts beta builds are pretty bug free. Sorry for the OTP.
