Apparently upgrading to OP7 fixed the problem, at least in the last 7-8 hours I've been looking at it. So yes it must have been outpost.

Hopefully it stays "fixed."  I would still let the OTPost people know about the bug.  In the meantime, enjoy surfing again.   ;)

If you read the OPs reply #11, having reinstalled win7 and used the latest Outpost version 7, which is meant to be fully compatible with win7, this problem doesn't occur (so far).

So as I said I think it was a case of Outpost pro 2009 (version 6.x) not being fully compatible with win7, but then again it came out earlier than win7, so I wouldn't expect it to be fully compatible.

I agree with you DavidR.  The OP needs to report this in the OTPost forum as there is a problem with programming with the FW that will not affect all users.  I wanted the OP to know that this was not an Avast issue, but rather his FW and should follow up appropriately.
