Avast Web Shield and CCleaner
« on: December 18, 2013, 01:21:04 PM »
Avast Free 2014.9.0.2011
CCleaner 4.08.4428
Windows 7 SP1 x86

Web Shield stops working with Pale Moon 24.2.2,Opera 12.16 and Opera Developer after running CCleaner.
It still works with Firefox 26.0 and IE11.
After reboot it works with all browsers until I use CCleaner again.I tried to turn off/on Web Shield,but it didn't work.
Only after reboot Web Shield is working with all browsers.

Can anyone reproduce this ?
I did Avast repair,but it is still the same thing.
I also unchecked Avast in CCleaner.
Probably CCleaner is cleaning some file or folder important for Web Shield.
If I know which file or folder it is, I could exclude it from cleaning.

It looks like all major browsers (IE,Chrome,Firefox) are unaffected.

@Para-Noid
No,it is not listed in applications tab,but it is supported by CCleaner.
CCleaner "thinks" it is Firefox browser.

Pale Moon is supported "natively" in CCleaner (without CCEnhancer). See other supported browsers:
  http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/features
Opera Developer is not supported by CCleaner and Web Shield is also not working with Opera Dev. after
running CCleaner,so it must be some Windows temp file or something that is "cleaned" by CCleaner.

I really regret updating to 2014.9.0.2011 version.
CCleaner is probably deleting some Avast temp file or folder.
You should hide or move or rename that file or folder.
Developers,please fix this.

Do you honestly believe that renaming or moving that folder would make a blind bit of difference, I don't. CCleaner in short order would just find the new name and you are back in the same boat.

I don't let ccleaner do anything to avast.

You are not helping.
If you have mentioned browsers installed try to reproduce this problem.
Everything is explained in previous posts.

Again we can see great "help" from Evangelists.
If you don't have Pale Moon,Opera Presto or Opera Blink installed please ignore this topic.
