thanks for clearing that up. Core 2 is great (now I really see why Apple Ditched The PowerPC architecture)

Vlk, you mentioned Armadillo. Does this mean you have a full 1:1 Armadillo unpacker in the works?

EDIT:
WTF!? I downloaded aswbeta.exe, executed it as usual, there is that ding sound and no update dialog at all. And process is not even running. What gives!?

Yep, and I think it's almost ready now... (I think)

Vlk (and Avast support teams):

In regards to my earlier post ( http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=25504.0 ) ... I have tried to use this new beta version on Windows Vista to see if it cleared up the Video Playback error for Transcode360 (Transcode 360)...

If you recall, the error was:
-----
Video Error
Files needed to display video are not installed or not working correctly.  Please restart Windows Media Center or restart the computer.
-----


My setup is:
Windows: Vista RTM - Ultimate
UAC: On
avast!: v4.7.925 Beta
Transcode360: v1.6.1 Beta (for Windows Vista)

Results:
Still fails.  Even using the new version of avast!, I still get that error.  I have not tried just disabling the realtime virus protection, but will do that next.

The Transcode 360 developer says that this problem is YOURS, since the program works fine when using Windows OneCare on Vista.  I tend to agree too, because if I uninstall avast! and restart my pc, the program works flawlessly.  Nevertheless, I'm keeping pressure on him to keep trying to find a solution.

At the same time, I need your help to find the real root cause of this issue.

Kind regards,
  Jacob W. Klein

Jacob, please let's move back to the original thread. Does the problem reoccur even with Standard Shield paused and/or stopped?

Thanks

After downloading the file you need to run it, so the update process can begin ;)

When I clicked on the first exe my user has been automatically logged off and windows rebooted  :o why? bug?
After the avast 4.7.925 installation, the KPF4 GUI crashed and I've seen a red avast pop-up message!  :'(
After the reboot it seems to work fine.

Which exe?

Do you mean after booting?

After the reboot it seems to work fine.
Does the problem continues or it's solved?

Just some input from a swedish user :)

The beta is really stable here, no problem at all! The scanning is litte faster then before, and my computer boots up little faster then before...so i'm happy with this release ;)

Keep up the good work!

Happy New Year!

Found a small glitch in the About dialog...



I think that "Build" should say "Dec2006" instead "Oct2006"...
