Nope...Just uninstalled 5.0.677, downloaded 5.1.874, re-booted...no error messages. And I have an "Acer" laptop.
Install was smooth and .874 is now running pleasantly quietly in the background. In fact it seems everything loaded a little quicker. Just like the avast know and love.

To one and all thanks for providing this fantastic anti-virus software. A special thanks go to VIK(sp) for putting up with all the bugs and us. 

Thank you...Avast.

874 fixes the problems I found with 864 on my Acer Desktop running Windows 7 (64-bit):

(1) Quick Launch menu appeared blank and after several seconds the icons and text appeared

(2) "Recent Places" list in "Save As" dialog box appears empty and then gets populated so slowly that Windows reports Opera has stopped responding

(3) Spybot S&D's "Check for problems" scan runs VERY slowly

Uninstalling 864's Behavior Shield "fixed" these problems.

Used 874 installer to upgrade 864, rebooted, re-installed the Behavior Shield, rebooted again and now things are working better:

(1) Quick Launch menu appears with icons and text immediately

(2) "Recent Places" list now appears faster

(3) Spybot S&D's "Check for problems" scan runs at normal speed now
Get rid of SpyBot S&D it's not worth the time or trouble. And the tea timer conflicts with avast. We recommend using MalwareBytes Free or Pro and Super Anti-Spyware Free. You will be better off with MBAB and SAS.

Will this latest update be available from within the program GUI at all? If not, do we need to uninstall current version before downloading and installing new version, or should I just wait? Sorry for being so thick. I am fairly new to avast! and have always had AV software that updated from within the program itself, hence my confusion.

Inserting license code issue.

Having got an installation error updating AIS 5.0.677 to 5.1.864, I uninstalled, ran Registry Mechanic, installed 5.1.874.
When prompted during installation I inserted the license code but when it finished, all shields were deactivated and license "expired" displayed, despite the expiry date showing as 13/8/2011. Inserting the same code a second time fixed it.

YoKenny just pipped me at the post. :(

As stated at the beginning of the thread, 5.1.874 isn't an official update. It's a pre-release fix for the issues listed. It won't be available in the UI, the eventual official update will.

Does anyone know if 5.1.874 would fix the problem I had with a number of programs crashing every time I tried to run them?
