4.8.1178 Home beta - selecting 'push iAVS' locks OS, 95OSR2

This may be a beta-only glitch but I discovered that if you check the 'push iAVS box (couldn't it be greyed-out in avast! Home anyway?), instead of letting you know that this feature is unavailable, a large plain-colour menu box appears on the screen and the OS (95OSR2) locks, no mouse, no keyboard response, no nuttin'  :'( Reboot required.

If you try to switch from Simple into Enhanced UI (from Simple UI menu) - does it behave the same?

I think I found the problem for the empty rectangle (incorrect description in MS docs  :-\). However, I'd say it was there since the release of the Arabic version of avast!, i.e. since 4.7.1029 - July 28th, 2007.

I'm not sure if the freeze is connected, however - it didn't reproduce here... well, you'll see in the next build.

You can test the latest beta (4.8.1185), it should have the Igor's change already in it.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
