Avast software has officially released final/stable version of Avast 2015 R3 with build number 2015.10.3.2223 for Windows and is available to download. This and previous Avast 2015 R2 versions are compatible with Windows 10.

R3 re-introduces Grimefighter as Avast Cleanup (not to be confused with Avast Cleanup tool which is intended for removal of Avast antivirus) to users (still a paid feature, no change in that) and HIPS feature which existed in older version of Avast seems revisited and felt not-effective and redundant by testers during the beta period.
