Oh and this is straight out of the box - no fiddling with either Avast or admuncher settings  ;D

I take it that means that it is working for you as I don't think it was even running for the OP ?
Unfortunately detailed information wasn't provided by the OP so I really don't know exactly waht his problem is.

I was hoping you could try to get it to work with the behavior shield, currently it appears to be blocking it for the OP. This is what I had asked for and suggested of the OP but no answers or feedback on any of the suggestions were forthcoming.

~~~~
What I asked of the OP and Suggestions:
1. See if there is anything in the log - Perhaps it is another file, check the C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\report\BehaviorShield.txt

2. The following had already been added to the trusted zone:
- AdMunch.exe
- Admunch64.exe
But no joy, disabling the behavior shield was the only way to get it to work.

3. If those two are trusted and there are no other ad muncher files listed in the behaviorshield.txt file, next step, otherwise add any other ad muncher files in the behaviorshield.txt to trusted processes.

If that doesn't work:
4. Add iexplore.exe to the trusted processes.

If that doesn't work:
5. Uncheck this option 'Monitor the system for unauthorised modifications' in the Behavior Shield settings and see if that resolves the problem.

If that doesn't work:
6. We are down to disabling/uninstalling the behavior shield.

####
So we really need some detailed feedback from the OP on exactly what was going on.

Logs are empty - I made no exceptions

And admuncher appears to work as advertised

Weird, now it is down to the OP to get back and see if there is some other conflicting security application on the system which might tie up the behavior shield whilst it does any checking on ad muncher. But as you say nothing in the behaviorshield.txt log.

I would imagine it is something in the system configuration as mine is fairly light with security Avast only
