Real-time Shields with "Shield Logs" on the traffic graph GUI.

Slow on the uptake here :-[ but I just noticed the following.  Using FF 7.0B3

The graphs for the Real-time Shields are showing activity however the "Shield Logs" (to the right of "Show Traffic History" are empty.

That is because nothing has been found (presumably) only detections (as is indicated by the column headings in the display) it doesn't record OK files in the same way other shield log don't.

If that is the case and it makes sense that you are correct then the name of these log links in the GUI should be changed "XXX Threats Detected Log". :)   Just saying.

I believe that there is another confusing word usage in the Real-Time Shield area.

When you click on "Show Traffic History" --- "Time Period" ------ "Today" for a Real-Time Shield count of items scanned, the count of items scanned it not for "Today" but for the last 24 hours.  So the count has to be corrected to reflect "Today" or the wording changed to say "Last 24 Hours"

At least in America when people say "Today" they are referring to a Calendar date which starts at 00:01 (12:01 AM) and not the last 24 hours.

ISTM that it would best to change all the count periods to commence at 00:01 on the computer's clock and leave the wording alone.

JMO :)

Well the log link has to pretty clear, by just shows Shield log as this name is carried through all shields.

So I feel avast are right to try and maintain a consistency through all shields, as it also makes it easier in the translation consistency and also keeps the word count down for translations in the UI.

So far this beta is running smooth on both my systems (W7 32 and 64 Bit). I did not encounter any problems yet.

Sorry but the Log Link is not clear at all according to what you said it shows. You said it shows "only detections" yet the link says "Shield Logs"

Shield Logs in American means complete shield logs whether there is a "detection" or not.  If in fact you are correct that the "Shield Logs" show only detections then the link should say "Shield Log Detections"   There is no translation problem here in adding one word to all the Shield Log links.

Then again maybe you are incorrect and the term "Shield Log" is supposed to do what it says; i.e show all "Scanned Scripts".

Either way something needs to be fixed, IMO 8)

For what it's worth I just up-dated to 1279 and the script shield works in both IE and FF. I was wondering if anyone else has checked their CPU usage, Mine dropped dramatically. From about 30% to around 5%. RAM also dropped from 1.4 GB to 1.25 GB.   :)

Virus defs are showing that it needs to be updated on the UI summery page.  I run update but it says I already have the up to-date version.  After this the summery page does not mention the update needed.

Reboot if that doesn't resolve it - Try a repair of avast:
XP - Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and scroll down to Repair, click next and follow.

Vista, win7 - Control Panel, Programs & Features, uninstall a program, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and scroll down to Repair, click next and follow.

You may need to reboot after the repair. This has in the past resolved this out of sync issue between reported and actual VPS version.

Can you not set Web Rep to work with Firefox 7 and 8 as well.  You have done that you say for the script shield?

That way you will be "on track" with the Firefox 7 release and ahead of Firefox 8
