Re: Can't get rid of malware

The likely reason is because they're Chrome browser extensions, rather than the more traditional BHOs/extensions of yonderyear.

Blocking ActiveX, Java and Flash will prevent most of it re-appearing in future.

Re: Can't get rid of malware

As an aside, if you were getting this BEFORE using the portable version, it's very likely you've got adware etc on board, in which case, follow the instructions at;

Re: Can't get rid of malware

1. Shutdown Avant 2. Delete the following folder; %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\.default 3. Re-load Avant If it is actually an infection, this will nuke it. If however, it's malicious etc ads from ad networks, then blocking ActiveX, Java (blocking both is highly advised as a matter of...

Re: Avast AntiVirus Flags Avant

I don't use Avast myself (prefer Eset), but you'll need to reach out to the Avast team to get them to correct it.

Re: Bug: Can't find server

Prime example - all I was trying to load was google.co.uk and google.com; imgAvant_Gecko_DNSError.png This is indicating Avant is doing something it shouldn't be, with the DNS requests (neither domain fails to resolve, so either it's doing DNS internally and completely messing it up, then intercepti...

Bug: Can't find server

Seeing this extremely frequently with the latest builds (currently using build 27). Attempts to load any site produces; "Firefox can't find the server at {SITE}" I don't use either of the other engines, and there's no constant or otherwise specific timing/cause. Only way to sort it out (temporarily ...

Re: Test build

Under which situation will the avant find page be displayed? When a domain fails to resolve, or just doesn't load in Avant (seeing quite a few that sporadically fail to load in Avant, but load in IE for example) The download dialog doesn't appear at all or appear in background? Sometimes it appears...

Test build

Systems: Windows 7 pro Windows 8.1 Installed the test build; 1. Windows 7 machine, loading 46 tabs on launching Avant, shows a little more stability - however, it's also shooting the RAM usage well over 1GB just on launch alone. 2. Both are still exhibiting an issue with the Avant Find page being di...

Re: Troubles in AB build 16 & 17

xiaobing, Issue itself is on-going. Actual "serious" failures/crashes from it are a little more sporadic (i.e. few times on this machine, more on one of my VMs and constantly on older machines). Not only Avant but also your computer freeze too? You use firefox engine, right? Entire machine freezes ...

Yep, it means the files are locked when Avant is trying to delete/clear them (nothing I can do about that from this end unfortunately)
