Gian, it seems that manual updates work OK, since you can get the latest .396 version.  Did your computer come with some other security software installed (Norton is the most common) before you went to Avast! 4.8?   Does Task Manager show anything out of the ordinary, like Live Update?  Have you done a recent virus scan?

As it took me 3 hours on dial up to re-install 4.8 it would be neat if there was a major announcement as a sticky that all systems had passed muster for the latest edition of 5.0 before I go down that path again !!!
Thanks: Ian Mc

If you'd like, you can test the pre-release bits now. Anyone who has problems with the official build (5.0.377) - especially system-wide crashes or hangs - is welcome to do so. This build is also supposed to fix the "hang" issue of the previous pre-release builds (393/394) .
[snip]
This is a service release that is supposed to fix most of the issues reported for the 5.0.377 version. Most importatly, the intermittent BSODs should hopefully be gone.
Any comments are welcome.
Thanks much
Vlk
Nope, no cigar.
This build is still hanging on me toward the end of the installation.
The incompatibility with MBAM real-time doesn't seem to be completely solved, sorry.
OS: XP Pro SP3.

No other real-time security app running, besides AVAST 5.1.884 Free.

Did those still having problems with 396 do a full uninstall with the Avast! 5 removal tool at http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=54385.0 and then a clean reinstall?

May I ask if you have Malwarebytes installed and active?

I somehow doubt this will happen as there is no way anyone can give that kind of assurance, the number of OS and software permutations is simply enormous.

Download links:
Free AV -- http://files.avast.com/files/beta/5.0.396/setup_av_free.exe

Hi Vik

I am trying to download the file above, but its running at like 4k/s...is there anywhere else I can get it...the download keeps dropping out.

Background - I am running an Acer 6920G, 4Gb RAM, Vista Home Premium (SP2), 32 bit OS, and after installing the earlier Avast! version 5 (from the main web site) on restart I got the BSOD, and eventually had to uninstall it. I then re-installed and it went OK, but then eventually got a BSOD again... then I saw your post regarding the newest pre-release, so I was trying to download it.

Kind Regards,
Greer
