Right taskbar ball, close all protective, blue screen, I hope as soon as possible, there are a lot of people have this problem.

Hi,
could you please add some specs of your system? Avast version and edition, OS version, 32/64bit, HW configuration etc.

Do I understand it correctly that you get a Windows blue screen when you disable all shields from the Avast taskbar icon?
Thanks.

Updated from with the GUI easily. But computer hung slightly on the request to reboot from the Avast update. Did a manual reboot and all is well. In the future Avast should change how the update installer works. It keeps the exclusions and such, as it should, but it should look to see if things like Web Rep are installed or not. If not, then it should not install them again without letting the user know. Otherwise working fine so far. Also, it would be nice if the Virus Chest is quickly located on the main interface screen. Right now, it is somewhat buried and takes some digging to find it.

Correction: Avast did not keep my exclusion list.

I am one of many that are having problems updating to 2015.10.2.2214. My WinXP SP3 system uses dial-up and I have been trying for several days to update from 2015.10.0.2208 to the new version. Using the on-line updater, I am completely unable to download ais_gen_gui_nosse2_cef-7cc.vxp.dld. This download always fails and restarts.
Since the on-line update over dial-up seems to be impossible, I downloaded the full offline update package from the Avast9 server at my library's broadband computers. This 140M byte package also fails to update my system. It gets about one third of the way through the process, fails, and reverts to my current 10.0.2208 version.

I have no problems of any kind updating the virus definitions. There must be major bugs with the servers.

Thanks.

After a few friends to explore, a blue screen appears after installing Web Shield; in removing the web protection after only contains the file protection and virtual machines NG, right-click the tray icon to close the open guard, slower reaction times, but no blue screen appears.
Not only this version, several versions exist in front of this issue.
System: win7sp1,32 bit Ultimate.
avast: Free Edition
Spam Protection: Right guard blocked due to Netease clients receive mail, so there is no installation.
This version comes with two avastui.exe process.

No solution found in Topic: Avast 2015.2.2014 not working with Sandboxie.

I found that the old (!) version 2015.10.0.2208 does NOT produce the problem.
I report the problem with Avast 2015.2.2014 here with more details:
Outside the sandbox I can access all web pages, especially *.google.com, *.yahoo.com, *bing.com
  Inside the sandbox my Browsers say: Page not found for *.google.com  and www.yahoo.com
Avast message pops up = Avast web shield has blocked access because the following certificate is unvalid:
*.google.com  and www.yahoo.com
Inside the sandbox *bing.com is found, no problem

Tested with both, Firefox36.0.1 and Internet Explorer 11.
Latest versions of Sandboxie-4.16(64bit) and Avast-free-2015.10.2.2214 under Windows7-64.
Remove and Clean install of both Sandboxie and Avast does not help.

No problem with older (!) version of Avast on different PC, Avast-free-2015.10.0.2208 (and same Sandboxie-4.16(64bit), same firefox, same win7-64).
Has anyone tested to reinstall OLD VERSION 2015.10.0.2208?

I get the same screenshots reported under the present topic, shown by
"this version works perfectly" ?? Not for me.

Of course, the unspoken message behind my post is that at least, the update server confusion has been resolved. Grazie mille scuderia Avasta!
