Hello!
Did you use any other antivirus or antispyware in your computer? Did you use in the past?
Which is your Standard Shield security level? High or Normal?
avast should protect you against virus before they change register or hosts file and avast has a repair function to executables that could be repaired. Did you finish VRDB (virus recovery database) generation?

my Standard Shield security level is high

i guess that you may say that the high on access scanner lets computer slow

but version 4.7 hasn't this question

i haven't seen VRDB option

a generic behavior blocker is not implemented in 4.x version, but it's planed for version 5

avast! doesn't have system repair function

and what about VRDB? it can handle simple repair operations on system related files... but it's always important to keep your own backups (no disinfection is perfect and you can observe problems other than virus related - some HW errors etc).. simply, avast is not a product like ghost or true image :P

Right click the 'a' blue icon and choose VRDB to be generated now.

So you must have a separate 'i' icon and the options are on the 'i' icon context menu.
