Downloaded via GUI. Gonna restart now... I'll comeback with news.

Update:
So just downloaded from GUI of build .874.. avast! asked for reboot and I said 'Yes'.
Reboot occurred with no problems. Boot time was fine.
After boot, avast! appeared as 'Secure' and with shields ON and working.

I will now perform some basic actions to see if it's everything OK.

Thanks.

...new pre-released build of avast, version number 5.1.884. This build is supposed to solve the remaining issues that were not fixed by the previous pre-release version 5.1.874.
Confirm Corel problem fixed in 32bit environment. Will report on 64bit ASAP.

Well, can you pack a few of those executables (with avast! disabled) and upload them to ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming ?

Also, it may be useful to have a dump of the frozen Explorer.exe - if you could do that. A tool to create the dump is here (the problem is old and unrelated, in your case we'd be interested in Explorer.exe)
I send you the some executables (ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming[/ftp]).
But ... incredible! I can not reproduce the freezing of explorer.???
As soon as it happens, I send the dump explorer.
Thanks.

Upgrade was smooth, no lags on start-up. Seems OK  ;)

As I posted in another thread, I updated the Avast Free Program to Version 5.1.864 and had a problem with the Avast File Shield. When engaged this Shield blocked Explorer from accessing my Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit Recycle Bin in all Accounts on my WinBook Laptop. When Explorer was blocked, Windows froze and had to be restarted with a hardware reset.

I removed Avast completely, and installed Avast 5.1.874 beta and the problem went away.

Since updating the program through the interface to 5.1.884, I can report that there have been no further issues. This is the version currently being offered through the Avast Interface.

Thanks for the swift action on this problematic update.

Hi RC Primak.
I wanted to ask if the "transient cache" was activated at the time of freezing of explorer. Yes?

Updated through the GUI from .874 so far so good.

Thanks :)

I had Avast Version 5.0.677 on my computer. I just tried installing the latest version via the "Update Program" link in the software. I don't know what version it tried to install on my computer, but did it ever screw things up! My computer froze on starting, and I had to do a system restore. Even then, I couldn't get Avast to start, and had to uninstall it. Now I've got 5.0.545 on my computer. How can I get back to 5.0.677?

What is the game's name? I'm currently looking at Divinity II compatibility problem with the latest build. Thanks.

@ pk: I saw in another thread that you advised a poster to uninstall the firewall (in AIS) until the next release. So would you say that the issue I related were caused by the firewall definitely or may be or no way? :) ... just wondering. (talking about Windows firewall switching itself off and homegroup interface half broken). I don't have these issues right now with 894. Happened while I was using 874... not even sure that was avast related.
