It certainly hasn't worked for me. Freezes on Install, randomly on boot or when left running, and when uninstalling.

vlk says he's found the cause for the install freeze I was experiencing (based on the memory.dmp I sent him), so it should be fixed in the next update.

On my PC, the last phase of uninstall takes longer than I'd have expected, but it does finish and prompt for a reboot.

So far, no bluescreens or other misbehaviours here while the product's running.

Vlk..I have this version of avast! installed on three different systems. I'm monitoring all of them at this juncture. Windows XP Pro, Windows Vista and Windows 7. I don't want to speak too soon 7-), no problems so far.

so far so good... running whole day without any crashes... with the official release 5.377 I had 5 BSODs during one day on Win7 32, so for me the BSODs have stopped in 5.394 version.

Hello- I was able to install and use the new Avast 5 for about a day before it started to lock up.  It would not update to current version although it seemed to be logging on to the server when I would do a manual update.  It would say it downloaded 2 files but the file size would always be 0.0 kb.  I had to roll back to ver. 4.8 and now everything is back to normal.

I have the same problem. 5.0 even not retrieving the updates.

Yikes!  Wish I'd seen this sooner.  I bought the 3 license set of Avast IS today (trying to get my bosses' computer cleaned up) from the main website and ended up with ver. 377.  Downloaded his to a Windows XP SP3 computer.  It installed ok, but hangs up during the scan.  Installed on my identical computer and got the total lock up.  Clicked on the link from this thread for the .394, but that wouldn't install.  Managed to uninstall on my bosses' computer... had to boot my in safe mode to get it off of my computer.  Now reading, I'm not sure I should even try to download 394 yet.  I can't have my bosses' computer screwed up when he gets back in the morning.  Ah, but the question.  Will the licenses still be good if I wait a day or two for you guys to get this latest version working better?  Just paid $59.95 and can't use what I paid for.  No offense at all... I've used free versions for years and love what you guys do.  I just want to get a good working version of IS installed and don't have time for a bunch more uninstalling, so I will wait.  Again, though, license email says its only good for 3 days!  ???

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!

That's interesting! I have PCTFW 6.0.0.88 and I haven't experienced a freeze after reboot.

I installed the new software version hoping it would cure my shut down problem and thought it had eliminated the problem, but later today shut down again and once again my computer just hung on the shutdown screen.
Using Windows 7 Pro on a brand new notebook.

Iangho, can you please upload the recent minidump files from C:\Windows\Minidump folder to
Code: [Select]
ftp://ftp.avast.com/incomingThanks.


Had same problem with .396.

Iangho.dmp is after install, update virus database and then reboot.

Iangho1.dmp is after booting in safe-mode I checked Settings/Troubleshooting/Load Avast...

To get Avast working I had to uninstall in safe-mode. Reboot, install and check Settings/Troubleshooting/Load Avast... before rebooting.

It is now available as a public release. You should be able to download it from cnet when they update their site to include ver. .396 instead of .377.

Hope to have been of service ;)
