yeah this has happened randomly on my system with some previous builds. A dll replacement (sent by Igor) fixed that ...but then I found on the next day after a new setup that the "bad" dll was working again...there was a delay issue between the moment the screen saver appears on the screen and the avast AV engine is initialized and starts to scan... don't know works fine here now.

tsilo, have you set up the screensaver then? I.e. have you selected it in Control Panel?
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

I'm a bit confused.. .where did you set up Starfield? You need to select "avast! antivirus"
