I just saw this problem on another post and they downloaded beta 4.5.536 to fix it. Where do I find that download?

Thanks a bunch. Cloud

Hi cloud,
to install the version 4.5.36 pls read this thread:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=9007

I'm not sure if 4.5.36 is officially released now, so pls check Your version before doing that.

A beta version is a software not oficially released yet, which is published for testing. Usually such a version may have some minor bugs, which are then corrected during the beta test phase till the software is officially released. Avast beta version are very stable - I have this version installed and had no problems with it.

Are You sure everything freezes - may be the file is a huge archive, which take some time to scan. I assume this file is in one of the temporary directories.

Peter,

Yeah, even my mouse stops working. I had to turn off my machine with the switch which I hate to do. Everything looks okay though. I'm running 4.5 version.

I checked the temp directory but will try again. If it is there I could just delete it, right?

Thanks for the info on the 4.5.536, will check it out.

There has been a very recent official release 4.5.542, just do a regular manual program update.

What file did you find in registry? You have lots of friends here, you just haven't met them yet.

The registry doesn't contain files but links to files.

Bob,

hmmmm, I guess that means those are important to my system. I have XP. Would that make a difference?

Thanks very much for your help everyone. I do appreciate it. I will get this figured out and I'm learning a lot.

Please post the key here and let us have a look.
(start > run > regedit > navigate to and click on the key > file > export > copy/paste the content of the created file here)

Not everything in the registry is legitimate ;)

I was unable to copy and when I tried to attach it there was a dns error. The registry editor would let me print it. When I checked to see how much paper I needed it showed 3764 pages and 86.6 MB! I scanned the 1st 5 pages. I hope this helps. Thanks for your patience.

Try to update to the recent build (546).
If the problem still persists... well, it's necessary to find the particular file/folder. You can e.g. turn on the creation of the report file (check all the items there, including "OK files") and run the scan again. After the freeze, check the end of the report file - the real file is likely to be close to the end of the file.
Btw, does it matter if the scanning of archives is on/off?
