Installed from scratch. Selected not to install P2P shield, but it got installed. Had to uninstall from control panel. Previous version (1044) didn't have this problem.
Did you do a Custom Install or regular install and not elect to install the P2P shield.  Custom install should have worked for you, then it lets you confirm what you are installing prior to the install.  If not, it may be a bug.

Of course I used the custom install, or else how would I select not to install the P2P shield? ;) Will try again on my VM and see if it is reproducible.

Ok. This is not the case on Win XP SP3. So will have to try it on my Win7 system, again.

I thought context menu text will change to "avast! Scan" or "Scan with avast!". Hope in the new version...?
Updated via GUI and everything is fine...

you already got an avast icon in front of the entry in the context menu, that's not enough ??? ::)

Hey PK!

Red Media Player anyone?

I installed again AVAST 6 (6.0.1086), the problem is still there :( I write again my configuration : Windows XP Home edition SP3 ; 2.17 GHz ; 1.00 Gb RAM. - Windows Media Player 11, with the default skin.

yeah okay Asyn, I use Vlc too, but if someone prefers to use WMP, which btw has been the case for me a long time until I switched, that's his damned right. Using another program to get rid of an issue with the one you use is no solution.

Yes, as Logos wrote, using VLC doesn't resolve the problem. I have almost 100 Gb of Music in my Windows Media Player library and I know WMP11 perfectly. I don't want to use another player.
I must add too that it affects some videos playings too with WMP11, not all videos playings, but some of them : the videos pause very often .... exactly the same problem I have on YOUTUBE with all AVAST versions :(

I installed again the latest build of AVAST 5, WMP11 works perfectly with AVAST 5. I hope that the VPS updates will be available for a long time for AVAST 5, most of the programs stop the updates for the previous versions when they launch a new version.

That's why I added ;) to my message.
For some it might be a solution, for some not.
But you're right, that it should be solved for WMP users.
[OT] Btw, I think VLC is the best player out there atm, imo.

They will, as 5.x and 6.x use the same database.

Thank you very much :)

But when you will launch a version 7 ... there will be maybe some problems  :(

It gives you the time to find a solution for the problem with WMP11 becoming red with AVAST 6 and with the problems with some videos playings with WMP11 (and with Youtube & Dailymotion, but about Youtube and Dailymotion the problem is with all AVAST versions :().

Updated over 1044...all is well :)

I think the welcome screen, is the "Protected by avast" message on boot (Win 7)
This is in the "Basic" page of the settings

The Community features are the like button and the twitter button in alerts. These are changable in the "Community" page of the settings.
