Hi, sorry for the clean log button, it really has problems. Unfortunately, for the log files to be deleted you have to stop all avast serviceses and processes. Which means:

1. disable self-defence
2. net stop "avast! Antivirus"
3. net stop "avast! Firewall"
4. taskkil /F /IM "avastui.exe"

now you can delete the files, the start avastui from avast installation folder, and click the FIX NOW button.

For number 4, the taskkil command wont work for me in Vista. Please help.

rainwizard, which is your avast version?
Next program update will improve the firewall logs deletion.
You can, now, set the maximum log file size into avast settings.

My program version is 5.0.545. May I know when the next program update will be available?

Soon. But I'm not the one who can say that.

But Lukas acknowledge the problem.

Hi RainWizard, you can use TaskManager (start by Ctrl+hift+Esc), lookup the avastui.exe line and click End-Process button.
