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. :)

Ensure that Fortinet FW allows AvastSvc.exe internet connection.
If it does delete the entry and connect to the internet again that should force it to ask permission again.

The AvastSvc.exe is used for three services see image.

Build 394 solves continual reboot from XP Pro Welcome screen with aksfridge.sys. It does however find hardlock.sys, also part of the Aladdin Hasp SRM software (as is aksfridge.sys), suspicious via heuristic scanning.

Cheers,
Brett

Thanks for the confirmation.

Correct. It will be solved in one of the next VPS updates (doesn't require a program update).

Thanks

I had to uninstal completly avast 5 because my computer was completly freezing on startup. Even disabling (is that a word?) the shields didn't work. I had to go to safe mode to uninstal everything.

Windows Vista, 32 b., Avst 5.0.394.

BTW, congrats Vlk for 10 000 posts :)

Completely freezing with a clean install of v5.0.394?? Are you sure? As in: not even mouse cursor moved?

I'm double-checking as pretty much everyone so far confirmed that build 394 did solved these kind of issues...

Thanks

Try using a registry & system cleaner and then install again

Aubsurmer, next time you try to install it please verify that it's indeed build 394 by right-clicking the left-hand side banner in the avast setup wizard - it should tell you which version it is going to install, exactly.

 I hav win xp sp3 with 4.8 professional edition..to maintain my license i downloaded n installed avast 5 pro from

     http://www.avast.com/lp-upgrade-4-5-paid

    after installation,restarted,only wallpaper appears,no taskbar, task manager shows AvastSvc.exe as 'startup pending'

    i started explorer.exe using task manager but nothing happened.after restart,even task manager is inaccessible

    finally i restored system using safemode using restore point.

    THIS HAPPENED FOR ALL PEOPLE UPGRADING FROM 4.8 PRO TO 5 PRO DOWNLOADED FROM ABOVE SITE USING WINDOWS XP

This is what i have now installed (this is what is written in the maintenance tab). So far no problem, but last time i didn'T have any problem before 3-4 restarting of my computer.

But right now its good  :)

platform : Windows XP SP3

I was running .377 without having noticed any issue (just got the hardlock.sys warning).
I decided to bump it up to .394. The upgrade process was straight forward.
Everything looked good until I got the hardlock.sys warning again. (just went to select ignore - as you guys will fixed that in a new signature db release)

The warning bring up the Real time shield window and what I am noticing now is that the mouse is freezing every time the graph is being refreshed.
It happens with any of the Real time shields graphs. CPU/memory usage is normal.

Just wanted to mention it.  ;)

See this earlier post, this is confirmed and will be fixed in a VPS Update.
