Tried to set regedit to create a crash dump, but there is no 'Parameters' key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\

Are you using a USB keyboard?
If yes, I'm afraid we're out of luck on WinXP (it's not possible to generate the dump that way). PS/2 keyboard is needed...

Just got a random freeze when the auto update function activated itself.

Am using Avast 5.0.394.

Hope this is fixed soon............

With 394 I get the same problem: BSOD after log-on UNLESS I check to load Avast after other services.

BSOD, as before, happened at "restoring network connections" stage of logon.

I am using XP SP3 and wireless g.

Sorry, there's nothing there.

If you want me to try something I will do it tomorrow morning. Bed-time here.

Clean uninstall then tried to install 394 and system hungs at Finishing Setup.  Manualy rebooted and upon startup see the Avast icon in system tray....system hung.  Manual reboot and started fine with no Avast running.

394 no better than previous.

camphill, I also get the freeze on install, but it is all OK after a reboot.

See this thread: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=54495.0

One of the responses there leads to a post on how to get a memory dump after a freeze.  Maybe you could do that and submit it to Alwil.

Unfourtunately the system is hung upon reboot. I can't do anything but move the mouse. The sys tray is hung, the task bar is hung, the desktop is hung.  All I could do is hard boot. After the hard boot the Avast icon no longer appeared in the systrray but I do still see it loaded in memory. Maybe I'll go through the entire process AGAIN and try to get logs.

Installed 394 5 hours ago, and been using the PC constantly since then and so far had no issues or BSOD that I had with previous versions.

For the most part, since installing build 394, my Avast Pro XP Pro SP3 PC is fine. I did experience a freeze-up approx 1 to 2 minutes after the first boot today that I believe was related to the auto update process?? A second boot has proven to be fine. So, while I think 394 is basically ok, there is still something not quite right... :(

**EDIT**
BTW... When the PC froze, it had apparently updated to the latest definition 100128-0 but I never received any notification (pop-up or voice.)

No problems till now with my windows XP, i'm testing this version and will report any bugs if i meet ...

Hi, has anyone already tested this build? Any problems solved by it? Like BSODs or generic slowdowns of the system? Thanks. L.

No Problems Til Now with This Version, 5.0.394, when all shields stopped, but was successfully restarted with Fix Now Button, No Freeze Ups, First Scan of Laptop--Worked well(No Freeze ups),  Freeze Ups on Second Desktop PC running XP SP3--Solved...  Vista PC Running Great, No Problems with that one, but will report any if they come up.

Otherwise Build is stable and working well

System that AVAST 5.0.393 with PCTOOLS Firewall Plus(6.0.0.88) has been installed  is freezing after reboot(install)!
I wonder if 5.0.394 is safe version...Have a nice day!
