confirming the "ask mode" issue with the firewall >>> alert popups are freezing, i.e. you can't allow or deny, just close the popup and switch back to auto-decide to start the program. No issue in auto-decide mode.

edit: unrelated, the only problem with the manual scan popup, if you didn't make it sticky and if there was another alert (of any kind) in the meantime, you can't get it back (the scan popup), and there's still nothing saying in systray that a scan is running...

edit: Win7 taskbar button from Avast when minimized shows progress of manual scan, nice 8)

Also, for some reason I received a license expired message. Had to re-insert my license.

I'm not sure if there has been much behavior shield modification for 64 bit. Seems the same. Still don't see any activity.

Well, I know it's early but Pro and AIS look fine.

I'll wait for the final release for the other computers. :)

Same here, but we can see some kind of details if you set BS options to "Ask".
I already see 5 "Asking" dialogs, 3 are about Mozy, 1 is services.exe and 1 is CIS.

Anyway, is it strange that there is too many (75) "blocked" actions, though "Analyzed" events are only 16... still increasing...


Well mine is presumably set to the default Allow, as I haven't changed it. So I will set it to Ask and see how noisy it is. I think the problem with many of these they are at boot time or very shortly after so the Ask interface is going to be a bit of a pain in the a**.

After installing the beta AIS : the Win 7 Firewall is in a disabled mode (win 7 FW = off ).
This is opposed to the case when Ver 5.0.x was installed (Avast team recommended to leave the win 7 FW on).

Is that a bug in the installer ?

VLK please comment.

Also, when using the Firewall's GeoIP, I get the message attached below. This happens with all three network zones.

Computer frozen completely with both Behav Shield on "ask" and on "allow".
I just need to boot in Safe Mode to change anything. Nightmare (literally...).
I'm trying to restore the 5.0 version right now and uploading a manual dump.
I would like a feedback.

I think the disabling of the W7 Firewall is intentional. There really is no need for it.

@GloobyGoob : did you read my whole post about it ?

If yes , we don't need your opinion about it - we need Avast team to comment if that is a new approach .

I though the Ask would be very noisy on boot as that is when most of what it does is checked, so it looks like that assumption was right, but even worse freezing the system. I have switched it back to allow, I hadn't rebooted since I set it to Ask, so hopefully it won't have the same problem.
