After installing the beta I get this error each time I check mail from my email program.
It's strange. For the avast service indicated HAS rights in the firewall.
And there is no log entry in the firewall indicating that it has been blocked.
Also if I remove the right, I get no box asking for access (the firewall always do that).
So it seems like there is something else wrong.
With the last version I could not check mail at all through avast (had to delete all entries).

"Could you guys please confirm that the Script Shield works in Firefox and IE 32-bit (any version)?

Thanks

It seem so to me does not work with Firefox 7.0 Beta 1
With IE9 working well.

This will happen if any other program is already listening on any of the ports 12025, 12110, 12119 or 12143 (redirected SMTP, POP, NNTP and IMAP). You can use e.g. TcpView to find out which app is listening on those ports and therefore preventing the avast mail scanner from working correctly.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

What program should that be?
I have no other programs dealing with mail.
Where can I get "TcpView"?

Could you guys please confirm that the Script Shield works in Firefox and IE 32-bit (any version)?

Thanks
Vlk
Actually I do not get any activity with Firefox 7.0 Beta1, neither with IE9. I'm using Win 7 Pro x64 and avast! IS. Any suggestions ?  ???

I have just checked the Behavior Shield as you mentioned improvements in that also and I find that it appears to be scanning the unp999999.tmp files in the temp\_avast_\ folder.

Is this intended, I would have thought that there would be an implied exclusion of that folder since it is avast populating it ?

Yep, looking good. I don't think I ever saw it working before.

Installed on two computers and seems fine. :)

Mail Shield shows emails being scanned when they are downloaded but they do not show up in the Mail Shield Traffic History graph even today's graph.

Firefox 7.0B1  with NoScript - Nothing showing up under real-time Script Shield when I use FF. History graph is showing one scanned script on Wed from last week on all three computers but nothing since.  I do use IE once in a while.

All other shields appear to be working fine.

When in the Real-Time Shield section to get to the Summary section you have to click on the Maintenance section first.

Just want to tell Script module works fine with Firefox 6 and IE 9 ;D
Had a BSOD blue screen a few hours ago when I tried to shut down my PC. The PC was to install the latest Windows Update for Windows7 for x64 based system (KB2570791). I remember seeing ashsvr or something likethat involved. I rebooted without problem after this failure and had to re-check and install this Windows Update. All proceeded smoothly!!!
