Hopefully I can lighten the mood by asking a daft question? ;) In FSS exclusions I want to exclude a program I have called Codestuff Starter (app that enables you to inspect start-up programs and services). The auto sandbox caught it the first time and I allowed it to start normally on a permanent basis. However, there is a marked lag in starting this program even after avast has been running for a few days and the Starter has been used a number of times. So, clearly avast is not 'learning' that the app is OK and presumably scanning / delaying it when executed. I notice that in 'Exclusions' I cannot point directly to an executable and simply wondered why? I can manually enter the path to 'starter.exe' but I don't understand why I need to do that.

Thanks.

It's just that the exclusions selection dialog works on folders (i.e. enters the whole folder into the exclusion list), no special meaning... if you enter the exact file path manually or copy&paste it from somewhere else, the exclusion will work.

Thanks, would you advise (in my case) just pointing at the executable, or the whole folder which includes a .dll and .ini files?

That's hard to say - as I don't know what files take so long to scan/emulate.
I'd say try only the executable first and see if it helps.

Anyone using Facebook noticed?

I kinda have this problem in chatting and commenting stuff. My comments sometimes never gets posted or the chat message is never received by the recipient. Or I cannot receive theirs.

Most often people are asking me if I am angry for not replying even after they said Hi to me 3 times although i never got a single Hi

Is it the problem with Facebook or Avast or what?

Nice build though, thanks :)

you shouldn't be prompted to update to a beta version unless you're already running a previous beta build. But well, may be 1198 turned final ??? anyone?

Yes, if you already have a beta build installed ?
No if you have the regular program build installed. If this is the case then it would be a regular release, but I doubt that as the build version is unlikely to have remained the same as the latest beta build.

it's been reported that the script shield doesn't work on many systems (including mine). I actually don't bother installing it.
