If you got a mini dump for the freeze that you had please upload on their ftp server so they can watch what wrong on it.

Launched the 'update programme' function manually from 5.0.393. It seemed to update ok but froze on step 3/3 and displayed 'web shield'.

Couldn't move the mouse and no other programme was responsive.

Hard reset was the only option. Rebooted successfully and Avast is displaying 5.0.394 as the installed version.

Launched the 'update programme' function manually and it says it is already up to date.

How can I be sure these builds are installing properly (and are installed properly) if each install process freezes?

I have yet to experience BSODs, however I really fear this will appear at some stage. This has been a common occurrence for many users.

Let's get this sorted Alwil! I appreciate you must be working your arses off - so keep up the hard work lads!

I can see if i can find the Minidump on that XP SP3 PC, and then if i find it, i'll upload it immediately, it was doing a virus scan, and froze so solid, couldn't even wake it from Screensaver mode

Avastfan1, the freeze was a typical thing for build 393 (should not happen with 394 though).
To be sure, I would recommend installing 394 from scratch.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Vlk maybe he should make a hijackthis log also with his avast! setup log ?
I did post a setup log when the problem occurred during beta testing in another thread - there seemed to be nothing untoward in there.

There's no minidump for freezing...

Anyway, could you at least move the mouse pointer when the freeze occured?

Couldn't Move Mouse, Nor Did Control Alt Delete work at all, ended up pressing restart on the tower

Both on my Vista PC and This one XP SP3 Machine was clean installs to This Version..377 on other Household PC's, but not updating those yet due to no issues experience on that one, just wanted lastest version on Vista PC, since just switched from MSE for Good, Removed MSE thru Add/Remove Programs, and used CCcleaner as well

Vista PC is running fine so far

Trying another Full scan on XP SP3 Machine

I would be more than happy to send Alwil a dump (LOL), however I don't have the experience to follow those instructions you posted and muck around with my registry settings.

Question: How secure are our systems while the beta-versions are loaded? :O

bikemanAMD, can you please check the size and date of the file C:\windows\system32\drivers\aswSP.sys for me?

Thanks

Hi , I just did a install of 5.0.394 on a new snapshot of my xp home. No other security except fortinet fw.
I was able to see my browser's web pages until I installed avast. ???
Things seem to be working fine otherwise. :)
