I agree that Process information is very useful, not least for us helping on the forums as knowing the process involved helps determine what is going on. Typically Malicious URL alerts when the process involved is svchost.exe, etc. generally this is a rootkit issue and possible MBR rootkit.

Now that process will change to "Please change the settings in the webshield to ask, then report back the process when it happens again..."

It is there when the setting is on ask, but seeing as the default actions are to do something, then most people will not see the process listed...

I also agree with logos and scott on the virus alert... show the process and the "more details" button is way out of proportion. Would really like to see the correct page showing the details.

Also, "Yes, that was close, but relax... avast! just saved a crash!"  How about saved from a possible infection and a potential crash? Not every system crashes when infected.

"EssentialFax" Opens very slow unless I put in the the Exclusions list under "File System Shield"

http://www.essentialfax.com/

Can you fix this so I do not need to ad it to the Exclusions list please?

"EssentialFax" is a very clean program :)

Just downloading right now-can't wait for the real update! Maybe the webrep update for FF v5 will be in it too.
Yes it is.

Not very practical... :-\
I suggest to revert this back to the old look/info.

Seems good the CreditAlert feature, although only US available.
Will the release WebRep be compatible with FF 5?

WebRep is good to go for my computers with Firefox 5.0

GUI updates did not work.  Said it was up to date.   Could be the avast! server that my computers were trying to download from did not yet have the update on it.

Downloaded installer and ran it.  Clicked on update, installed and required a restart.

Everything looks good so far including WebRep :)

Re: Credit Alert.  I read the web page with the info and have some questions.

1. What information do you have to supply in order to activate it?

Please provide an exact detailed list of information that needs to be supplied including information like Social Security number.

2. Does it start out as a monthly recurring charge or can you set it up initially for only one month?

3. If you decide to stop the service at any time how do you do that?

4. Is this service outsourced to a third party?

If it is outsourced to a third party like a credit agency, please provide the link to that agency.

That are all the questions I have at this time.

Thanks :)

The only place that I see the CreditAlert is under Settings (in the upper toolbar) when you navigate to Maintenance | CreditAlert Settings.  You can disable the popups there.  I haven't dug further.

There is webpage linked earlier that provides more information.  Basically $9.99 or $9.95 whatever a month to activate it.  As I recall it can be activated from the webpage that was linked.  I haven't checked the GUI on this yet.

Thanks Gopher. They didn't make it very obvious. I thought it would have been under "Additional Protection".

You can choose betweeen free or premium alerts.

EDIT: After registering under settings/maintenance a tab under "Additional Protection" appears.

What exactly is the free registration monitoring?

Below is a screenshot.
