Check the NEW 'Processes to exclude' option in the web shield, expert settings, Exclusions, scroll down to the bottom of the screen..

oh okay thx ... missed that, that's related to the new webshield scope in Windows/programs, anything connecting through http.

are the Ad for trying out Products still happening?  in the free version like the in you face ad and the silder popup ads.

Brockey, with all respect, you keep posting the same question over and over again (at least once a day, for like a week now).

The IS trial offer was displayed exactly once for each user of the free version (I think that was in September). Since that, nothing.

I can't say it won't happen again, but given its frequency I don't think it's such a big deal. Or do you think otherwise?

Thanks
Vlk

You're welcome.

I think it is related, in that, rather than unchecking that 'anything connecting through http' option you can exclude a specific application, thereby retaining the additional level of protection for other non-browser http connections.

Just remember that if you are using the outgoing filtering of the Windows Firewall, the rules will be bypassed by the Web Shield if you don't restrict it to browser processes only.

Hey Dwarden :)

In case of a BSOD you can also email the minidump directly to Petr :) Easier for him, easier for us ;)

just one thing, no big deal:
yesterday after installing the beta and launching Thunderbird I was prompted by Avast, as expected, to turn off ssl. Did that as usual, np so far but shortly after this I launched Windows Live Mail and I wasn't prompted at all ??? and yes automatic detection of ssl accounts is of course on.

Nothing is FREE (unless you are death, and  ;D even so 8)) in this world. We live in the US and a company has the right to advertise its products in a decent manner to pay its bills! :-*

Even with the 1356 beta, autosandbox doesn't work...

Shame the other comments about this got lost in all the other posts...

In all the versions of Avast autosandbox has never worked
I tried running the tool.All i got was "modify the system" and no red band
I have tried on numerous occasions to get a answer but without success.
I really would like to know is or isn't it working.
Could somebody please explain it to me.
Thanks

Sorry, can you post again what you're calling "never worked" exactly?
