Unfortunately some of us can't use that function without getting the error.
What's strange is that I originally downloaded and installed Sashas's new avist skin.

I can select a new skin from the ones already available within the program.
However, I can not download any others without getting the sharing violation problem.
Even if i go to the website and select a skin from there and download it, the error appears.

Any comments from Alwil???

Is there a specific browser common for the problem? (like IE7, for example)

C'mon guys, Aliwl staff is asking a question to narrow the problem down and to help you...

All three guys - cinnapatch, HairBear and jbane09 posted only once and never replied back in this thread.

So far, we know for sure that Bob is on IE7 and he is having these problems... all we have to find out now is to hear from rest of the bunch that they also run IE7 as their default browser. I am sure Alwil guys will find out what's happening after you let them know what's the situation on your end.

Help us to help you  ;)

Yes no problems drhayden1, I know you have IE6 and some other browsers. Igor asked that question because he is suspecting that there must be somethig wrong in between avast! and new IE7, so if all those who reported those problems with sharing violation have IE7 as their default browser, Igor and guys may be able to narrow down what's causing that error.

It looks like we (on IE6) don't have those problems...

Cheers !

This appears to be IE7 related.
I just downloaded it from the Website using FF 1.5 and
was able to install the 9-11 skin without any problems.

So it would be really good if Alwil check that too before they release new avast! beta update. They said they will include some fixes so avast! will finally work on Vista too. Well, why not including this fix too... otherwise people will not be able to download skins from withing avast! GUI. That also can be characterized as a program bug by some reviewers, and we all know how much they love to search for those glitches and attack our antivirus...

Igor, any idea what could be causing this problem with IE7 ?

Some people have reported this to be fixed in the 881 build. Can you confirm/deny?

Yes, it is very frustrating when the people you are trying to help don't respond to requests for more information.
