Just did that, checked the error console and it didn't return this time on restart and everything is running fine now, so I think this fixed the issue.

[OT]: For further/future questions, a sig might help. ;)

On build 2011 you can delete registry key HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\aswFsBlk.

I ended up doing a clean install with the pro version as well.
Should have checked here first. Ah Well,  all is now working :)

This may not be significant, but I totally removed RC2 with AvastClear.exe in safemode(CleanInstall) BEFORE installing v 9.0.2011 and did not have this Reg Key issue.

Before making any changes to the registry, make sure to back it up.

Even though a clean install is the long way around, it's safer than modifying the registry.

It shouldn't be needed by now. We released an update which should take care of this issue.
