Avast! cannot detects registry?
« on: December 20, 2010, 04:10:18 PM »
Hello, I never saw avast! how blocking any memory items or deleting cookies. This can do AVG. Will avast! team do something like registry protector or cookie delete?. Anyway cool program, currently using 5.1.822 and I'm very happy, because of behavior shield and bootime scan working with my Win7 64bit OS.

Why ?.......cookies are not malware


HTTP cookie

you can empty the cookie folder with CCleaner

1.Cookies:
Why ?! even the bad cookies will not affect you when you have web shield turned on.
2.Registry protector:
That is the job of behavior blocker,and when a malware detected its refrences from registry will be deleted along side the files "even if avast dont tell you" ;)

1st of all you are using 5.1.822 which are beta
2nd upgrade it to 5.1.835
3rd post your suggestion/problem to beta section here
4rd antivirus are for removing virus,malware,spyware not for registry..if you want this feature, post it to wishlist thread here..avast team will decide it is need or not..
If java had true garbage collection, most program would delete themselves upon execution

I never had to do registry protection on my Win7 64bit system.

Another hype of "registry protection"... ::)
Cookies? Better eat them :) Seriously, they are not a security issue...

just on a side note here, IE9 final will integrate "tracking" protection. The feature has been requested by an US organization, so MS will do it. I appreciate the move.

IE9 final will integrate "tracking" protection.

I have been running IE9 since it became available.

Try the Speed Demos like Shakespeare's Tag Cloud

The other demos are interesting as well like the old Space Invader game under Graphics Demos
