EDIT
If this was some common problem all are suffering. Webshield finding some and you still get asked. I am SURE it would have been posted hre many times.
So emy, something is sure wrong with your antivirus setup.
Even I poor soul running Sygate firewall with it having a quite negative impact on outbound control with avast webshield proxy have always found Avast working fine for me

I'm not a pc tech either. I don't know what to touch of Avast configuration. So I'll relay on Avst at least to tell me if something is bad and on myself to stop it. It's kind of annoying but it will work. Thanks

lol if you don't know what it is then you don't have it. My reason for asking is that it can have some
settings which have adverse affect on some programs /extensions/.exe files
sorry I'm at a lost as to what is causing this issue?? ???

Since it's not a common issue I guess all i can do is hope that the next version of Avast will work with this. Thanks anyway.

She is having a problem, getting a warning from webshield and still getting asked if to save that file to a computer. Not normal guys and girls that to happen here.
Emy tried that eicar site, same thing.
We should think her as a troll?
XP Home, Antivir PE Classic,  kerio 2.1.5 or Sygate 5.5.2710, SSM 2.0.8.583 free, SpywareBlaster, CCleaner, Firefox through webshield and running NoScript extension or in Sandboxie

I'm not a troll  :'(
No. I did have just the port 80. What's port 8080?
And that silent mode was unchecked. I'll try again. Thanks!

[edit] tried. it was worse. this time I didn't get the Web Shield message. Just the boot alert and the window to download the file or not.  ??? What concern me is if I'll happen in a site that will NOT ask to save or abort a download.  :'(

Sorry I'm at a loss I bet it just some small configuration problem somewhere
Someone else may have the answer for you I know how annoying these things can be
after all what you're after is total Webshield protection or in this case disconnection ;)

Thanks for the help anyway. I wish it will be fixed with the next version. At the moment I'll try a total uninstall and install of firefox. thanks for the suggestions.

Nothing worked. I tried uninstalling and installing Firefox and Avast. I tried Avast in english and in italian. Nothing. And I treid using opera. Even worse. Web Shield didn't picked that file at all. I guess it's my pc. i can only cross my fingers and hope Avast will keep alerting me.  :'(
