Script Shield stopped working again!

First had problems with a virus update which was shown in red.  I did 2 repairs and rebooted twice because the first one would not work.  Now that the manual virus update works again (in green), the Script Shield stopped doing it's job.

I think that the poster above me is right about the dll's.  I replaced the not working dll's to the downloaded ones in this thread and all was fine until today!! 

I will wait until Avast! fixes the problem from their end.  I'm not going to replace the dll's again only for Avast! to replace these new dll's with the old ones or whatever it is.....

An avast Repair is likely to replace any substituted files as part of the process no doubt is an integrity check.

I don't know if the manual virus update would be doing the same integrity check. I haven't done a manual update if the auto update is working (which it is for me), there shouldn't be any need.

You are totally right, DavidR, it is a useless  thing to do a manual program update when there is nothing to update.
I mentioned this only for the "avast! curiosity cabinet" and on purpose did not adress it to "pk".

There is the avast! team using some of their brain power to cover some issue and succeeded; and here comes some user hitting a "useless" button and an avast! integrity check is stealing the above mentioned success!

By the way the manual def update does not "steal" any dll's, it's only manual program update!

Yes, I wasn't sure if a manual virus definitions update would do that 'steal dlls,' but I wasn't about to try and possibly undo the fix, when the regular auto update is working.

The patch .dll files?  That only works until you update Avast manually which is something I do quite often so it wouldn't work for me.

Well, there's usually no need for a manual program update..!! ;)

I'd much prefer an actual fix from Avast though then having to go and mess with .dll files and I do have to manual update, sometimes, no idea why.

Definitions although I check programs now and then, the problem is my internet is kind of spotty and sometimes it will get stuck doing an update and the only way I can get it out of that is to do a manual update.
