I have just received a reply to the ticket I raised to report this problem. Level 2 Tech Support have informed me that the Avast developers are now working on a fix.

Very good news... Let's wait and see... ;)

Excellent, I have raised a ticket too as I now need a copy of the 6.0.1367 installation file, which I don't seem to be able to get from anywhere.

I'll also hopefully be able to test any patches in our environment as I have done so in the past with Avast 5, and feed back.

V6 free is still available. Are you looking for free, pro, or IS?

Yes got it thank you.

I have had a reply to say that the programmers are looking into this.  I assume that this means not to bother with 7.0.1426 and await a fixed version :)

Hopefully I'll get patches to test with.  We only have another year of the IS and then we'll be moving over to BPP

What makes you think it's new? As I understand it, it's been there at least since version 5.0.

Anyway, can you please confirm that offline files work for you now?

Thanks

Not really since 5.0, more like 5.1, but very long nevertheless.

Just about to go home and  I've been on holiday for 10 days so sorry that I've not updated.

I'll get this checked out tomorrow, but it seems positive news; although it will also mean me visiting over 20 machines to update them.
