Solved Avast 8 Beta Not Playing Nice with Win 8.1 Preview


Hello all,

Just an FYI that when I tried to install Avast 8 (latest standard release) I received a compatibility warning and the installation stopped. So, at that point, I went to the Avast 8 forums to inquire about this issue and I was pointed to an Avast 8 Beta release that was supposed to fix the compatibility issue. However, although the Beta made it through the install, I still received a compatibility warning after installation, and I was notified that a fix was available, but I couldn't get to it because I kept receiving a ton of pop-up "write violation notices." So, at this point, I put on my System Image "life-jacket" and swam back to "island of Windows 7."
