Can you test if the latest 4.8.1195 solve this problem?

I'm about to reboot with the new avast version.......BUT Solved which problem? It no longer freezes during scan with the latest virus database update. And as for the rootkit issue, i stopped receiving them when i kept Aol from booting with the system. I said that in a post somewhere, i guess you missed it. The limited user accounts can still use aol without it booting with the system. Everyone wins!! :)
