I still get the freeze at the end of install.  My reset button's going to wear out at this rate! :-)

Explain us in a new thread your problem if possible to put screenshot and send them the mini dump on their ftp.

Edit : Coper 3.0.394 is pre-release its will be avaible for the 377 to go throught program update easly without problem.

Installing 394 over 393 got the database versions back in synch.

Dear Mr Agent, freeze makes screenshot impossible...   System hangs at end of install.  Can move mouse, drag the installer window (but it leaves trails).  ctrl-alt-del brings up expected dialogue box, but task manager won't start.  Alternatively, a shutdown and reboot (instead of task manager) hangs.  Hard reset only way out.  Been like this for me since build 5.0.314 or the previous beta, if I recall correctly.  No other AV, uninstalled, rebooted, new Avast removal utility run, rebooted, and then installed, so all was clean.

Getting a bit tired of reporting this over and over with no resolution, to be honest.

Really? A complete freeze?
Is it really v394 that you were installing (you can verify by right-clicking the left-hand side banner of the setup wizard ;))

Well, a "freeze" as I described above, vlk, and definitely 5.0.394, as that's the version which comes up after a reboot.

Unusable OS, anyway, which is as good as a total freeze.

Hi!
I´m still using the .377. It´s running very smooth and hasn´t caused any problems on my pc.

Will the next final version (.394/5/6 etc.) be delivered via Auto-update when it´s official released?

Thanks in advance.

YES!
Installed on top of 393 - restarted, and everything runs ok.
Added the BS in Add/Remove Programs and restarted again.

Now everything works as it should  :)

Updated my other 3 PC's as well, and everything is fine.

Thank you!!!

PhilR,

I'm afraid the only reliable way to understand the problem on your system is to go through the full dump creation process (as described here: http://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=71)

By analysing the dump, we'd see where the system is hung and make some conclusions... otherwise, it's really just guessing. ::)

Happy to report that upon installation of .394 my system no longer freezes upon restart. OS: Windows XP Pro SP3. Thanks a bunch!

PS: I should mention I did an upgrade over .377 again not a clean install, worked flawlessly!
