Hi kwiq, thank you for the feedback...
Working together to solve a problem.
I'd call that a strike. If we get enough of them, we'll wind up with a perfect game and a perfect Avast. :)

As kwiq is an Avast Team Member, it is likely we will hear from him when there is an update to report.  Till then....

For information only:
Have not had any *.tmp-shm files since 11th January - not sure what has changed (last prog update was on 3rd January).

The fix was probably accomplished via a VPS update.

Hi Gufron,
if you still have the same problem please provide us procmon log for analysis.
In comments above you will find step by step description how to create the log and send it to avast ftp server.
Thank you for report !

Hi Kwiq

Can we be clear please whether there was a program update (Bob3160 suggests it could have been by VPS) or whether the fix is waiting for version 19.2? Certainly the prbxxxx.tmp files are still appearing here, without any pattern of time or activity that I can see. So: did my system miss a program update (possible as I don't reboot very often)? Or is there no fix for 19.1?

The app* files have been handled via VPS, but prb* files require a program update.
A fix will be included in 19.2, there's no update for 19.1.

Dont have time to do that pal. need extra time to do that and prbxxx.tmp files created after 1 or 2 days not appear right away after installed.
Clean install avast, download from the web, created new user account, refresh windows, reinstall windows.
man, enough about that. 9 years i used avast, never once i experience this problem.
