Of course, Vlk can confirm Script Shield's capability if he wishes. ::)

Script Shield is designed to scan Windows Script Host activity the great majority of which was generated by Internet Explorer activity in prior versions of IE.

MSFT redesigned the JavaScript engine in IE9 which as I understand it eliminates the reliance on Windows Script Hosting.  Therefore Script Shield is rendered irrelevant with respect to Windows Script Host activity and IE9 as IE9 does not use Windows Script Host.   As a result there should be very little activity in SS if you are using IE9.

The Script Shield will, most likely, be extended to some other browsers, and improved even for IE. But - it will take some time (probably won't happen this year).

Sorry to dig up an old thread but I was searching for info on the script shield and IE9 and found this thread.

That clears things up. The Avast Script Shield definitely does not work with IE9, I noticed this a while ago as did many other people. It still doesn't work with the Avast 6.0.1091 release either and Igor's response indicates why.

No it doesn't, your photo proves nothing. It only works for you it seems.  ::) You're special. Also, before you do so, please don't start a rambling ping pong match of what you know and I don't. I also don't want to hear about who has a profile and who doesn't, etc....
