Well, it's the sandbox driver.
Do you use any other sandbox program in your computer?
Which avast version are you trying to install?

Hi, thanks for replying.

I decided to just reinstall the program - It fixed the problem. I forgot there was an option to repair an existing installation. >.>

There was something else I was going to ask but I can't seem to remember what...

Hm, I did just notice something...

Was the Script Shield significantly improved? Back when I use to use the Script Shield I was lucky if it scanned 3 or 4 scripts. I installed the Script Shield only few minutes ago when I reinstalled Avast and already the Script Shield has scanned 389 scripts.

That's cool.

I just thought of something. I remember reading that the Heuristics Level (Expert Settings > Sensitivity) does not affect some shields. Is this true? If so, what shields does the Heuristics Level not affect? I read that the Web Shield is one of the shields unaffected.

Not sure what you mean, as you can set it up for each shield (where possible) separately.

Hm, strange... Anyway, I can't seem to find where I read about it so for now I suppose I'll just set the heuristics to high and if I happen to come across the information again I'll make a thread in the future. It's possible I may have misread the information too.

I have a couple other questions.

1:

If AutoSandbox is set to 'Ask' and Silent/Gaming Mode is enabled, will AutoSandbox place suspicious programs into the sandbox automatically?

2:

How can I configure Avast's Script Shield so that it does not scan any scripts on any website with a particular domain?

I guess we got to the spoonfeeding period.

You can read the built in help included in avast.

Scrip Shield -> EXPERT settings -> exclusions. Add the url and save.

The help file doesn't provide any information regarding the Script Shield (except a short description detailing its purpose)...

-

All adding the the URL does is tell Avast to not scan the following script: http://www.crunchyroll.com/ - It does not tell Avast to not scan all scripts executed on any website with the following domain: crunchyroll.com (including sub-domains).
