1. Well, you have to check then, which new program could interfere...! You can narrow it down, if you look at the date of the last entry and which proggies where installed on this day.
2. Either the 'running' is false or it's still running, but only the logging/statistics is/are blocked...

Repair did not help.

How would I know?

2. How would I know?

1. Has nothing to do with the repair, as it isn't displaying any error at all.
Again, I would look at the log.
- When was the last entry?
- As you can say on which day it started, you can look, what was installed afterwards....
2. A question for the devs...!!

The report Tech posted is the regular Behavioral Shield report (notepad)...correct Tech?  It appears that it is working according to the date, but you still show no (graph) activity if you click on Show Traffic History?
Mac 10.9.4 /Safari and Firefox (NoScript/AdBlockPlus/BetterPrivacy/Ghostey)/
Vista Home Prem (same add-on's)/Avast Free/Online Armor Premium Firewall/MBAM Premium)/ Mobile MBAM.

Hi there people's, im new here to posting but been following forum for last year or abouts so please forgive me if i put something where i shouldn't. In reading this thread that "tech" has started i noticed that i have the exact same senario whereas everything shows it's working fine but iv had no activity registered in the behavior statistic's for the last week either and im sure iv noticed it working prior to this.       Nothing has changed recently on my cpu other than windows updates so iv know idea either as to what has happened.
I must say though that im really impressed with this av  :)

acer 8920g 2duo t8300, windows 7 home premium 32 bit 4 gig ram, nvidia gforce 9500m gs, avast 5.0.594 free, malwarebytes pro,spywareblaster, windows firewall.

I continue without activity in the Behavior Shield.
Is there a problem with the latest virus definitions?
Any word from avast team? Why do you not answer to my threads? :'(
