unrelated here, but the BSOD caused by Avast when uninstalling Opera 11 as mentioned in my above post caused all profiles from opened programs as it happened to break completely, and that includes Firefox (all custom settings lost, including LP credentials, and I'm sure I would have lost all my passwords if I had used FF integrated pw manager), Thunderbird (accounts deleted), and Skype, all reset to default with messages as if they were running for the first time. I could restore the good versions thanks ;D I know, it's not Avast that did that, it's the BSOD ;)

Received another blue screen error. Continuation from last night. Virus defs won't update (package is broken). Tried a repair which ended in an error. Have saved the minidump. Going to fully reinstall. See attached.

Behaviour Shield Again:

1. Still getting 13 of 15 blocked, yet no entries in the behaviour shield text file, there is little point in having this file if the only thing recorded is start and stop data. It is absolutely no good the BS User Interface showing blocked items if there is zero way of finding out what is blocked.

People have been complaining about this in the forums for some time now in 5.0, rather than provide comfort and additional security it makes people worry about what it is the the behaviour shield has found  and why. Yet, zero/zilch/nada/nothing/sod all information in the BS report file. This is why so many people have switched off the BS, which is bad news when it really could be a great addition, but right now it is causing more grief that potential good.

2. The Trusted Processes section of the BS Expert Settings doesn't appear to work. Yesterday the only notification on the blocked items is the Last blocked field and because this is for Outpost firewall pro. I added this to the trusted processes, yet here it is again listed as blocked (we know as I have Allow and the BS is currently passive), so the trusted process doesn't work or doesn't function correctly.

See image, note the different path annotation, the BS info is in the old style 8.3 format, yet when you use the Browse function to navigate to trusted process, the entry path is in the full non-shortened 8.3 format, so essentiall they are the same locations but different path formats.

Is it this which is failing or that the trusted process function simply doesn't work ?

Yes much longer, so much so I thought there might be something wrong.

I'm not aware of any freezing here, but that question is more for Vlk.

The minidump can be uploaded to ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming

Oh no... We are two - at least - and you can't reproduce it?
I won't be able (today) to install it again and froze my computer... restoring the 5.0 version again...
