Guys, for at least some of you (dahu, tobykim, ...) the problem is related to a special driver called 000.fcl.
A brief search on Google suggests that this file is part of CyberLink DVD. Can you guys confirm that you have this software installed?

And if so, can you please send the 000.fcl file to me for further analysis?
(click the envelope icon below my picture to do that).

Normally, it would be located in the "C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD" folder.


Thanks much, and sorry for the troubles
Vlk

No need to be sorry about the troubles :P.

I don'T have that software installed and nothing named 000.fcl on my computer, so for me it's probably something else.

tobykim, thanks for the file. We'll be looking into it shortly. BTW can you confirm that the crash occured when you were doing something with PowerDVD?

Aubsurmer, you're right, your crash is a different story. Unfortunately somewhat harder to debug as the dump file doesn't contain many useful pointers. But we're also working on it...


Thanks again
Vlk

Hi vlk,

Thanks

ath, please send me the minidump - I'll then tell you if I need the full dump as well, or not.

Thanks.

I haven't switched over to avast 5 yet.  Heck, I barely found out on the avast Blog that the release had already happened yesterday.

I'll probably wait 2 to 4 weeks before switching over.
Anyway, I have a question for when I do switch over or for whenever I need this Info.
Do ALL computers go into Safe Mode by pressing the same key?
I know how to Boot Up in Safe Mode on my other computer ... my famous Windows 98SE Gateway. ;D I know how to do it on that one since I have all the documentation on it.  But, THIS computer, my Windows XP one, I got it used, with no documentation.  It is an HP Pavilion 6730.  How would I Boot Up in Safe Mode on this computer?

ath, if you could upload the full dump to our ftp, it would be useful.
Please compress it first and then upload to ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming (write-only access)


Thanks

Thanks, joiwind!  :)  However, that BootSafe would only work in the ideal case where one can get to the Desktop.  If something goes seriously wrong, be it because of avast 5 or because of whatever situation and our computer CANNOT get to the Desktop, then we wouldn't be able to run BootSafe.  But, at least it did seem to imply in that link that F8 IS the universal key with which to initiate Booting Up in Safe Mode for any computer.  At least that's how I interpreted it.

I've just had another BSOD while browsing. the strange thing is that I've never had one single BSOD with beta versions.
