The Script Shield is working perfectly with Chrome for me on both this machine and the one running XP.

Again the visual bug in Avast GUI is discovered. To reproduce it, make the following steps:

This will be fixed in the next program update.
The origin of the problem is the fact that the explorer-scan box was not saving it's state correctly.

Thanks for reporting.

Thanks that fixed this error and take into account our observations.

I also want to give some suggestions about SafeZone:
1) firstly, it has no settings, which is pretty sad for computer security in SafeZone.
2) secondly, when you exit the SafeZone clipboard is not cleared and all the passwords I entered or copied, remain in memory and on the clipboard, it is unacceptable and outrageous for SafeZone!
3) Third, would not prevent the existence of a "digital" keyboard (such as to Kaspersky) for enter passwords and ensuring the safe operation against spyware!
4) Fourth, in SafeZone the ability to run even text files (with passwords) through a sandbox environment.

It was first reported there and then confirmed for German localization.

How can it solve the problem? Do you suggest to ask users to change their screen resolutions? First, it is not necessary: to drag the bottom of the window a bit down is enough to solve it. Second, it doesn't save us from complaints.

Thank you for your support in removing bugs!

This is going to sound stupid, but since downloading the new version, my virus scans are going much faster.

Like a Quick Scan that used to take 6 minutes now is finished between 45 seconds and 2 minutes.

Is that normal?

Last time Avast scanned that quickly was when a virus in my system corrupted it. I am probably just being paranoid though.

Thanks avast! for this release.

I updated from .1289 to .1367 via the program interface hoping the "6008 error" (unexpected shutdown) would not show up again like in all the "betas" in-between.

Since update to .1367 I had 4 def. updates with shutdowns and/or reboots afterwards and guess what:
No "6008 error" anymore!

Is it now just a mystery, because everyone complaining had that behaviour also in version .1289 except for me, or did you find that little devil and killed it?

It depends on the screen resolution. Please test using a different screen resolution (both higher and lower).
How can it solve the problem? Do you suggest to ask users to change their screen resolutions? First, it is not necessary: to drag the bottom of the window a bit down is enough to solve it. Second, it doesn't save us from complaints.

No, I wasn't suggesting the users should change their screen resolutions *permanently*. I was suggesting to do it for a simple test, which can eventually give more information to the developers to solve the problem.

This is not just for this case, but for any case where a problem arises, so to narrow down the source of it. In this case, it WAS a GUI problem, so asking from a user to test a different resolution and report back seems not *that* extreme to me.

Making a test with a particular (temporal) change so to report back about it is not asking the user to change their "way of life".

Normal for the quick scan is slower since the last update?

I thought the problem was typically a win7 64 bit issue  ???

Regarding the problem I reported earlier with using the Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_29 with Avast! free 6.0.1367, I have tested various things and believe that the problem is connected with the use of Sandboxie (version 3.62).  The difficulty seems to be with Sandboxie while closing the process running under the control of Sandboxie.

I have not encountered any other problems so far.  I reported this to the Sandboxie people.

POSTSCRIPT: This is a Sandboxie problem pure and simple.  The use of JRE is a coincidence.  Sandboxie hangs the system when closing the process uner its control, in this case a web browser (Opera, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) whether or not JRE has been used.
