Hmmm... Used the cleaning utility to uninstall all traces of avast!
Then installed the beta.
Same problem. The file shield scans ALL .exe files pointed to bt Start Menu shortcuts at boot.
And while it does that it is impossible to do anything (takes all CPU power).
Why is it doing this? Have never seen this in any previous version.
Is there a way to prevent this (programs will be scanned when I run them anyway, right)?
It's very annoying (ok, I haven't gotten the worlds fastet system, but anyway).

BTW: My XP SP3 still hangs at shutdown when avast is active.
     I'll try disabling each shield one by one and see which one is guilty :-)

I can't run Anticheats systems for Counter-Strike in Windows XP SP3 + Avast 6.0.1000 and 6.0.1021 but in Win7 no problems and can play, I had to reinstall 5.1.889 and works.

Are working on it?

Until avast populates the permanent cache.
To accelerate the process, run a full scanning and remember to mark both options to populate the caches.

Nope. Happends each time I start my computer.
Also it keeps scanning "AvastUI.exe" over and over and over and over.... :-(

I'll attach an image...

Well, most users are happy with updates, bringing new features.
If you're not, nobody forces you to install them, right?

Besides, the world of malware is evolving, it's necessary to react. It's not possible to wait "a few months" to deploy new protection measures.

+1
Development requires updates.
avast updates (and betas) are very stable (in most general).

An update was needed for XP users in particular. The sandboxing was not working right for one thing.

I don't usually do it but I downloaded this new version and opened the installer. It asked if I wanted to update from 6.0.1000 to 6.0.1021. I said yes and it completed in about 20 seconds and then said a reboot was needed. After the restart everything seems fine and all my settings were retained so I'm happy so far.

One question though. What are / were the social networking features? I selected to not show them and nothing changed at all in the GUI. I turned off the recommendations and the green "Like Avast" button disappeared.

There is some Twitter or whatever icon on virus detection popup which posts someone like "Whoa, avast! just saved my ass" or something similar. I guess you can live without it.  ;D

Updated manually, and it went smooth as silk. I really like the option to have the "Protected by avast!" show on boot. Normally I hate things like this, but with avast!, it looks extremely professional, and I think it's a cool touch! Kudos for letting the user choose.

Great work avast! team. You guys are listening to the users, and it shows..........THANKS!! ;D
