    new beta version is live: 12.3.2277
    This release is about passive mode which will make it easier to run Avast with another antivirus. To try it you can go to Settings and turn it on. It basically disables all realtime protection, but still receving virus definition updates and program updates so it's ready for on demand scans. Please try also to install this beta version on system, where is already another AV running, in that case the passive mode should be activated automatically. Please note that the other AV must be registered in WSC. This feature works on Windows 7 and higher.
    Fixed:
    + BSOD for Skylake processor running Windows 10 Anniversary Update(RS1)
    + Randomly opening Avast UI bug
    + SafePrice browser extension component is no longer installed during update when Browser extension was not installed in the previous version

    Seems the previous update had bugs, too fast to release an update.
