avast! products (Free Antivirus, Pro Antivirus and Internet Security) received an update, which changes the version number to 7.0.1466.
The new release features mostly fixes, but the developer also announces improved stability and performance of Outlook plugin.
Repairs eliminate the “Black screen” syndrome and crashes in Internet Explorer WebRep module. Additionally, users should no longer experience random switching to the Safezone, available in Pro and Internet Security editions. Other fixes refer to SNX issues, BSODs and leaks.

Furthermore, the company representative notes that the fix should be available in version 8 of avast!
