Wrong folder, this should be the system TEMP, not the user's TEMP.

They appear and disappear as you browse...once the page loads they go. They stay if there is an open avast! alert (when on ask mode)

Well, there was no "policy to display them" - it's simply how WebShield works, it needs those temporary files. If the internals of WebShield changed, then the files might be gone - but I'm not aware of any such changes, and those unp*.tmp files still flash for me in that folder when I'm browsing.

They don't flash even for a millisecond when browsing.

Yes. Even when in ask mode.

Probably because explorer doesn't refresh enough...Try refreshing a few tabs at once and then refresh the explorer window

The unp999.tmp files show up there for me.
C:\Windows\Temp\_avast5_\

I haven't, that is where I have been monitoring, I use it so frequently I even have a shortcut for it.

I don't even get a flicker of the window and I rather doubt they would appear and disappear that quickly. Also when a web shield alert goes off, that unp file normally remained in the _avast5_ folder until you acknowledged the alert (my web shield settings are set to Ask) as it did previously.

Now I don't see that nor any indication that there are unp99999.tmp files created in that folder.

Well, what if you browse to an infected file?

My system hasn't changed at all, even with 10 tabs open and even using the Reload All Tabs has zero impact in the open c:\windows\temp\_avast5_ folder, no unp99999.tmp files displayed at all.

I don't use it like you do, I forgot that it was there and not the user temp folder (where that folder is also, for some reason)

Mine are on ask and I had an eicar alert open when I took that screenshot.
