Igor: This is my first idea too. After the upgrade of avast (4.8 => 5), Filesclab loops back and runs @ 50% cpu usage. So I have reinstalled Filesclab. And I have this problem with Avast.
So the two applications aren't compatible. Use Avast 5 the same service as Filesclab?
Can u advice me a good and free firewall?

tks

Maybe Online Armor or Outpost free. Maybe PCTools one.

Hi,

same as many other users in this thread, I'm on XP PRO SP3 and my firewall is Comodo, I checked the log and cannot see any unpXXXXXXX.mdmp files.

It occurs at least once a week since I installed Avast 5 but previously I was able to fix the problem by clicking on the "fix" button, this time nothing happens if I do so, I tried to reboot, but no change.

What else can I do?

Thanks for your advice.

Alex

Did you already try a repair installation?

Go to add/remove Programms, select avast by doubleclicking, scroll down on the left side to "repair".
After repair do a reboot.

deums: Please upload one more file: c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Alwil Software\Avast5\chest\index.xml
That's done
Are the symptoms really the same for you (i.e. the service stops "randomly"... works for a while, stops later)
Not exactly the same : the service starts once after a new setup and avast runs correctly. But when i restart XP the service will never restart and i will always get a "X" on the avast icon in the systray.
