Something strange in 4.5.512
« on: November 10, 2004, 12:49:52 PM »
Hi,

Don't know what's happened to 4.5.512 beta. When right-click on the blue ball (a) and choose " Stop on-access protection " to stop the on-access protection but when I want to re-enable the on-access protection again, it's failed. When trying to right-click on the blue ball, no menu appears or it takes to much time to appear but almost fail to open right-click menu. I have to use avast! External Control (thanks RejZoR) to re-enable on-access protection again.

My system

Pentium-M Centrino 1.3 GHz
256 MB of RAM
Windows XP Pro XP1

Thanks.

To enable the on-access protection again:
left click the blue ball (on-acces control panel will open) and choose start

You are right, something's wrong there. I'll check it.

happens on WinXP Home SP2 aswell

edit: Just found out, if you disable it, you can't left click it, but if you do and then open a folder or my computer it appears all of a sudden.

Happens on Win 98 as well.  

Opening a folder or going to My computer etc., doesn't help on my system... still no menu on left click.    :-[

Should be fixed in 4.5.514.
