Avast has released a fourth program update called Avast Antivirus 2015 R4. Build version is 2015.10.4.2233. As always with Avast, you can update to the latest version completely for free. If you are not interested in the update details, you can go directly to download links.

Latest update doesn’t contain any new features, it just fixes the issues from the previous version. The only new small thing is a better layout of the server selection in SecureLine. However the amount of fixes is quite big and there are some major ones related to Windows 10 upgrade. Full list of changes/fixes includes:

  • NEW SecureLine Server Selection – New layout of the server selection in SecureLine VPN component (see the screenshot below for reference)
  • FIXED Cleanup Scan Stops on 99% – In the previous versions, Cleanup scan sometimes stopped on 99%
  • FIXED Cleanup Reports Leftovers of Updated Software – During the update of some programs (Skype, Java), Cleanup was reporting leftovers files
  • FIXED Firewall in Windows 10 – After update to Windows 10, Avast firewall sometimes couldn’t be started
  • FIXED HTTPS Certificates in Firefox in Windows 10 – After update to Windows 10, Avast was causing issues with HTTPS certificates in Firefox
  • FIXED Non-working Payment Gateways – Avast HTTPS scan has been causing issues with some payment gateways so customers couldn’t finish the payment
