Script shield vs IE9 on W7sp1x64 vs 6.0.1125
« on: May 15, 2011, 12:18:36 AM »
Is script shield supposed to be active (and show activity in history and shield details) on 32 and 64bit IE9 ?

because for me there is zero activity on any type of website be it local or remote

Same here. It scanned activity in IE8 but it stopped scanning Activity in IE9 like on http://www.yahoo.com/ it scanned in IE8 but in IE9 it doesn't.  I wish avast would fix this. ::)

Nothing for me either on my Windows 7 x64 machine. I just uninstalled the script shield on this machine.

Notice the different type of windows?

It seems that 64 bit (win 7?) has issues...

I was actually going to say the same thing a while back, but got a bit confused when I saw some script shield activity every now and then (in between long bouts of inactivity).

From my observations this applied to earlier versions of avast! since IE9 was released and also affects me (a user of Win 7 x64).  This was dramatically noticeable after the update to IE9 as almost immediately I noticed the statistics in Script Shield activity drop to 0 for long periods of time (never was like this before).  It only seems to pick up again following full system scans or something more intensive related to 3rd party applications (can't say for sure).  However, it is quick to die down to no activity afterwards.

I don't use IE a lot, but whenever I do it's the 32-bit version.  I'm aware I have some programs that use it such as MSN messenger, but that hasn't stopped the Script Shield from functioning actively prior to the IE9 update.
