I read the BETA section and there is no reference to this little annoyance in the new build ???
Are they aware that it exists?? ???

I hope so...  :o
Just search the board or logon from time to time and you'll know that this is an issue that appears (and, being fare, disappears) from time to time. It's a deterministic problem: it comes and goes... But it's here now... A lot of users have this problem from time to time :P
Maybe, or better, for sure, it's not easy to reproduce and be sure what's going wrong. They're working hard but this 'issue' remains unsolved.

XP SP1, Sygate PF Pro 5.5, avast! Home 4.6.652... Had that 'Referenced... memory could not be read' error last night; similar problem on my brother's PC I installed avast! on.

avast! 4.5 had no such problems; it only seems to be the latest 4.6 build that is causing problems. I'm considering finding another antivirus if these problems persist, but I'd rather not have to.

hi y all,

just do it:

start/panel control/system/advanced/performance/configuration/data prevention execution.  set second option and add  ashserv.exe   in the avast directory.
that's all!!!

john lui,
So far, so good. :)

To make things a little easier for those with less computer skills, see if this helps:

Start--> Control Panel --> System --> Advanced --> Performance Settings --> Data Execution Prevention -->
Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select --> set second option and add  ashserv.exe   
(By default it is located in:   C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashServ.exe .


Here are some screen shots to help guide you.
 
 
After this is done, you MUST reboot the system for the settings to take effect.

If this truly works, this is one American who'll gladly kiss a Frenchman..... ;D ;D

In fact, there isn't.
It's a XP (maybe XP SP2) feature only.

Hi Bob 3160,

I'm glad It worked up well for y and I must thank y for the terrific job you've done. The ida was just to show the solution and as y can see the problem lies on the windows system. In fact ,this error also happens with other other antivirus programs like mcfee, for example.
Now to try to help those who are not using windows XP SP2 or server 2003 SP1 like WIN2K I suggest do this:
Although this dammed DEP may not be present, there must be a internal configuration that activates it, with a different name. To find out just use the windows HELP (start/ help support) and do a research with keys like: "data execution prevention","execution prevention","memory prevention","hardware/software memory protection"and so on. I'll try to get a Win2k machine and see if I can post a solution as soon as possible.

there's something else: I'm a Brazilian and a hand shake would be just fine!!!

Gee ricco333 I just got your e-mail

Guess you forgot to mark it "Handle with care, do not shake" ;D ;D ;D

I am running version 4.6.652 with the latest updates and I am still getting this error on shutdown.  I performed the settings as outlines previously with the DEP settings, but it still hasn't resolved the issue.

Any other suggestions?

In fact, as Igor posted, this won't solve the problem that remains open, without a final solution...

I don't know about any one else but it sure took care of me.
I've not had any more errors since I made the change.
