Igor is talking about some architectural changes that will most likely take place in the avast 5 release.

On the other hand, I somehow agree that the service could actually detect if ashDisp.exe has been killed and respawn it when needed... That would be quite easy to implement, actually.

BTW a similar thing is that when the SERVICE (ashServ.exe) part is not running, and you double-click the avast tray icon (which has the red cross on it), you get the dreaded "AAVM RPC" error message. The tray icon compoment doesn't even bother to have a look if the service is running, and if not, try to start it... This is another thing that will be addressed in v5.

I assume the anti-kill/self-protection feature proposed for version 5 will make this issue a thing of the past ?
cool idea!)) I will be waiting for the version 5)

Why do you wait for avast 5 release then?

The tray icon compoment doesn't even bother to have a look if the service is running, and if not, try to start it... This is another thing that will be addressed in v5.
The same... why don't you just add this now in avast 4.8, for instance?  :'( ::)

They would get my vote for inclusion at an earlier point like 4.8 as mentioned, if the relatively easy to include.

This could avoid the problem of some start-up monitors killing the start-up entry for ashDisp and anything that avoids the dreaded AAVM RPC error would no doubt reduce the activity on the forums.

Given the minor havoc we saw at the last avast program update due to antispwyware programs removing the avast startup entry for ashdisp I would second the request from David  for earlier action.

There are more and more recommendations in this forum for folks to use antispyware solutions along with avast.  Many of these users are likely to install such programs as resident completely unaware that it may well come with startup program monitoring that can be detrimental to avast.
