Possible Bug Report--Custom Scan, XP SP3 Desktop

Got Stuck during the scan, and wouldn't finish, unknown if it i was way i had setup the custom scan or what--had it setup for scanning all files/packers, storing data in the cache since just reinstalled Avast 5 on that desktop--cleanly

(same custom scan is ran on all the other Desktops/laptops here though--weekly)

Secondary Laptop: XP 32bit, 60gb hard drive-Avast 9.0.2018

And if you run the same scan again, does the same happen?
If yes, do the avast! processes use any CPU (while frozen) or not?

Additional unmentioned Bugfix :D

- When the firewall is set to "public" the tracert feature does it's job correctly :)

Did not Freeze up--finished the entire scan, was doing PC repair on other PC, so i wasn't watching it as closely as before--all is well it appears now, now to finish up maintenance on Desktop 5, and transfer some hardware to Desktop PC 2

- stability improvement in aswTdi.sys (solved a compatibility problem with AVG)
Hi
Which compatibility problem do you mean? The one with linkscanner?

Thanks!

It was a BSOD condition. We don't quite know what exactly was necessary to simulate the problem, but according to the Windows Error Reporting data we're getting, it was happening to roughly 400 people a day.

1. Why aren't you answering my question?

2. Strange startup items (runonce) that left after the installation and are, as far I could see, responsible to MS Outlook startup after boot.

Will you make Avast! compatible with Sandboxie in a way like v4.8 was - so that one can scan inside a sandbox (a sandboxed quickscan)? In v5.0 that's not possible.

Hi *,
Most notable improvements include:
- improved interaction with Windows System Restore; namely, avast now auto-repairs itself when it detects a corrupted VPS due to a System Restore (or other reasons)
Just updated to 5.0.584 hope this solves my problem with system restore :)

Tech, I have no idea what is "the screensaver bug" so I can't really answer the question. But I suppose it has been solved, whatever it was. ;)

So, we put 'the screensaver bug' (whatever it was) away... ;)

Got the new one and no problems - The screensaver worked on my windows 7 x64 before the update, so I have no idea either  ;D
