This version is noticeably slower than then stable release. Simply moving a file from the desktop to another folder will cause a delay as Avast intercepts and scans. It really is getting on my nerves. I can also hear my CPU working a lot harder than it was before. I don't know what has changed, but it isn't as transparent as the previous version.

@Privateofcourse : well first after I complained about speed issues with V6 stable, I found the pre-release version to be much faster. And second, if you got such issues as what you describe in your post, then your Windows install is broken. Avast just doesn't do such things to systems.

 Issues with moving files, deleting files, etc... came with Vista and are still there off and on in Seven, explorer just breaks once in a while. Try to create another profile, and if this doesn't work, re-install Windows.Yes of course you could check what happens if you uninstall Avast first, if things are better or not. Which still wouldn't mean that Avast is the culprit, but Windows cannot deal anymore with Avast drivers >>> on your system.

Hey ,
    I just noticed that avast don't scan script on Firefox 4 beta 12 but it does it on IE 8. Is it normal??????? or firefox not supported yet?


Based upon my experience that are so many Firefox addons that handle bad scripts, unwanted cookies/trackers, ad networks, Malvartising

https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Malvertising

and the like that one can do just fine in protecting themselves from the bad stuff using AIS, MBAM or SAS and Firefox along with a number of its addons.

If any Firefox users here would like to discuss these addons then feel free to send me a private message. :)
