No UNP99999.tmp files in _avast5_ folder whilst browsing.
« on: January 09, 2011, 02:23:58 AM »
I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but I no longer see the unp99999.tmp files displayed in the _avast5_ temp folder when browsing as they used to be.

I don't know if this was from the onset of 5.1 or from a specific build.

Is this by design or is avast now using another temp location for scanning http web content ?

The only thing in there now for me is the Webshlock.txt file now.

Whilst the web shield is active and the scan count for today is currently at 662, yet no copies of unp99999.tmp files in that folder.

I have the _avast5_ folder open and the web shield interface open and watched the web shield count increase and the last page scanned: field change, zero activity in the _avast5_ folder.

Edit: The same is happening on my other system, acer netbook, win7 starter, both systems are running 5.1.864.

Bump, any others finding (or not finding this) no unp99999.tmp files being extracted to the _avast5_ folder.

As I commented where you first mentioned it, I have nothing in the _avast5_ folder.

Even when I have a webshield alert open there is no tmp file (like there used to be)

If you can post the build number you are using and whatever OS, etc. To see if there is any common element, e.g. build number.

For me both XP Pro and win7 x86 Starter on 5.1.864.

I confirm this. No unp99999.tmp in _avast5_ (or elsewhere)...

Good in one way as it doesn't appear to only be related to 5.1.864 or earlier builds, so it still needs to be fixed or certainly investigated.

Bad in that I don't know if Igor's comment means, the folder is there or that the unp99999.tmp activity is still there.

It's still there for me...

Thanks,

I'm hoping this is some hiccup or oversight, rather than a change in policy to display them as they have proven invaluable for me in investigating supposed FPs/detections on sites reported in the forums.

The %TEMP% folder (put that into the address bar of explorer and it will open it)

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.
