All the shields have their heuristic levels set to "High" - maybe this is one of the factors involved... We'll see what happens.

I would suggest leaving the Heuristics at the default settings. Having them too high can and probably will result in many more alerts and they will be 99% FP's.

After playing with 6.0.1203 for awhile, I went back to 6.0.1125. The reason is speed. For some reason on my XP PRO SP3 laptop, things in general slowed (for ex: windows explorer for one).

My previously posted issues between 1203 and the GUI of a number of applications reached the point where I had to uninstall 1203 and install 1125.  Issues resolved.  However, when I ran Chrome and Firefox I noticed new icons.  On investigation they turned out to be Avast WebRep extensions.  I assume they were installed with 1125 and presumably would be installed with 1203.  Did I miss a dialog somewhere?  I did not knowingly give permission for these.  I removed both.  What's going on?

I've noticed a quirk with 6.0.1203 free on Win7 & WinXP. With both engine/defs & program updates set to manual, the OS no longer notifies of expired virus defs after 7 days. If I enable status bar def auto update monitoring, the avast exclamation icon appears in the system tray, but still no OS warning triggering.

Edit: Confirmed. 6.0.1203 doesn't trigger Windows Security Alerts with expired defs. 6.0.1125 triggers correctly.

This is one more report clearly saying that the tray icon warnings and the tray notifications are not behaving in the same way for all the users with the same settings.

The setting
Code: [Select]
Settings -> Status Bar (monitoring) -> Virus definitions versionis not working. For me, it isn't working under 1203, AND it was NOT working either under 1125 (and probably it was NOT working before).
ADD/REMOVE PROGS -> avast -> CHANGE/REMOVE -> REPAIR & REBOOT

It would help, if you add a signature. ;)

For some reason, Autosandbox settings are completely missing from the "additional protection" tab under XP64. Under W7-64, they're present (as expected).
Plus, when running some programs (xp64) (e.g. SUMO), I see the process sf.bin open and closing dozens of times a minute and slowing down the PC considerably...any clues?

- autosandbox isn't available on XP 64-bit OS, because this OS doesn't provide a unified framework for registry filtering which autosandbox is based on
- sf.bin is the component of heuristics engine, so you can see how it starts/terminates itself in Task Manager quite often

System won't boot after update!
« Reply #192 on: July 17, 2011, 10:45:58 AM »
Hi guys,

I have just updated to the latest version. After downloading and installing Avast asked me to reboot the system (Win7 ultimate 64-bit). After rebooting the Win7 boot screen appeared as usual, then it disappeared (as it should) and the screen went to the desktop background. Nothing else is happening.
Is this a known issue? I can boot in safe mode (i am in it while writing this message).
Please help!

regards,
v.

addendum: after booting in safe mode and rebooting normally: the screen hung at the win7 boot screen.
