Just for people who stumbled upon this thread, the conclusive answer by Vlk is below.
nightshade, the self-defense module (as with most NEW avast features) is for Windows 2000+ only. This is why it cannot be disabled (well, in fact, it cannot be enabled ;))

rdmaloyjr, why would that be a flaw in the self-defense system? To get from 1178 to 1185 you don't even have to run aswBeta.exe. Simply invoking the program update would actually do the trick. That's because you're now using the beta stream; the beta stream is always valid for all beta refreshes, and once the product is released officially, it is merged to the release stream.

Hope this helps,
Vlk
Means, self-defense module is not working on 98 SE or Me, which is why the option is grayed out.  nightshade, if you have problem with the terms, ask it in this thread but please don't repeat the same question.

Can someone please explain how I was to know that the link I used here was a beta when it has no reference to a beta in it's title? I am no mind reader.

No, I think you didn't understand me properly.  Read on.

Now, yes, I have that impression.  You had problem with the term.  "Pre-release" means beta near to the official version but, probably, it may be suitable for Vlk to re-write it pre-release beta or next time around.  Or keep any beta information to the beta board.  Jut my two cent.

nightshade,

assist me please ... can you tell me just where you found this link from Vlk?  I would very much like to see the context in which you fell prey to installing a beta product.

Dont' bother ... I see it ...

I am at a loss to where you do not understand that "Pre-release" means not yet in production.  You do not have to be a mind reader to work that out.

I am fully aware of the term pre-release.

Once I get the official stream for the official version and have it downloaded will that be me with the official version for good? unless of course I wanted to run the aswbeta.exe file for a beta.

Yes, that is true for all of us.
