Petusalem:

It's because ad muncher, uses it's own web filter, and it mess with avast web shield, in order to get avast web shield working, you need to disable ad muncher, or use a proxy config for the browsers to force them to use web shield.
(snip)
I had the same issue with ad muncher, so i decided to remove it, and now i'm using outpost firewall pro ad blocker,and it works seamlessly with Avast 5 Free, and it should work with pro and IS.
Sorry, but this is wrong info.  WebShield doesn't check AdMuncher traffics only because AdMuncher is not in the hidden default list of HTTP applications.  As long as you add AdMuncher to the configurable list in WebShield.ini manually as greenhatch wrote above, it is unanimously reported to work with WebShield.

In fact, I downloaded AdMuncher and put AdMunch.exe in WebScanner list in WebShield.ini, it now works without problems.  I don't think it took more than few minutes to do this.

Petusalem, if you still have questions, please go back to the original thread and read it and add your questions there since this is not an appropriate thread.

6.0 ::)
Where very far from it... we'll have 5.1 5.2... before. Which feature are you missing?

2Pac , salut, ca atare versiunea a 5-a a Avast-ului are Firewall doar ca el este disponibil doar in varianta Avast Internet Security , cred ca versiunea gratuita nu va avea un firewall niciodata .
Insa sunt destule Firewall-uri gratuite foarte bune , cum ar fi Comodo , care in cuplu cu Avast lucreaza perfect .

just two things:
 - for the second time today, W7 action center tells me that Avast firewall is off when it's definitely on. Stopping and restarting the fw solves the issue...temporarily
 - also I got prompted to reboot after just a VPS update (100308-0 to 1)

Now updated to v460 (see the original thread for details).

Thanks for the quick fix for Poser 8, I can confirm that it's working fine now...  :)

This seems to cover both of the things I mentioned,

Thanks :)

Notified and updated from the program update.  No problem found so far.  ;)

BTW, to Tech and other people who reported issues with system restore in Win7/Vista systems in this thread, have you noticed the pleasant surprise in the fixed list of 460?
And new in v5.0.460
- Vista/W7: solved a compatibility problem with System Restore
- solved a compatibility problem with SmithMicro Poser 8 and similar applications
- minor improvements in the GUI
