I have windows 7 64bit.

I have Dch48's which he says is working correctly. xp3
Just need one that is not working correctly. xp3

It may not show anything but it makes me feel like I contributed.  ;D

I don't see any huge difference between Dch48's and David's. Sensitivity is different, actions are different, the order of the settings is different...
Many of the main shield settings are the same though.

Update:
To take the filesystemshield.ini totally out of the equation, I disabled the self-defence module, stopped the file system shield and deleted the filesystemshield.ini file. Restarting the file system shield recreates the filesystemshield.ini.

So now it is very basic, on, see image1 and it continues to chomp away like pacman scanning files 813, since starting the FSS, but that appears to be a somewhat slower than before.

No, not sure what there is to repair, as that is generally to repair corruption.

I didn't think that the ini would be useful, since it is just holding the settings. I didn't see much difference between mine and yours anyway David. I think the other parts of the ini get recreated when you go into the settings and change something.

Anyway, I guess that this is OT...

Since Vlk mentioned something "touching" the files, could it be related to another resident scanning software?

What happens when you go into msconfig and select diagnostic startup? Then restart. This would prevent many things from starting that may conflict. May narrow something down. Couldn't hurt.

Yes, the shield defaults aren't included in the .ini file, only when the defaults are changed do they get entered into the .ini file.

The thing is I have had the resident MBAM disabled for over a day to ensure that it isn't it. To the same degree as avast, there would have to have been activity on that file for MBAM to want to get involved.

That still doesn't get around what is probably the most important side issue, why isn't the Transient cache working. That should be stopping all of this repetitive scanning dead in its tracks. Some of these files were scanned 4-10 times in a second.

No way we get that many updates, either regular or streaming updates to reset the transient cache.

Nothing on my system has changed since or just before avast7 final, and none of these problems existed on my system during the beta testing.

I run a tight ship, very little is allowed to start on boot unless essential.

That was before I excluded all the files mention in one of my post in this thread. Still  Temp\clclean.0001 is being scanned again and again.

I haven't had one streaming update ever so you are right DavidR, and There have not been that many vps regular updates ( Just 2 today )  to reset the transient cache.

Also attached is my FSS .ini if someone care to look at it, but my FSS have not been touched.

I just hope that Avast! Team who has been very quite about this problem is working a solution.

@ Asyn

I reinstalled Avast! and ran it with WP, CIS, MBAM, and HP disabled and still Avast! did not stop scanning the same files.

Guys I really am done clutching at straws: outpost is unchanged (I haven't updated to the recent 7.5.2 program update) and I don't have the anti-spyware or other modules installed; my system essentially hasn't changed; this never happened during the whole beta testing; the only change has been avast7 release.

It's futile! I hope they release a new update soon. I would imagine they are working overtime to fix some of these problems. It would be nice to have a fix this weekend. I wonder if the push updates are discontinued for now?

It would be nice to get an acknowledgement that A) they are aware of it, B) have replicated it, C) are working on a fix or D) tell us what else we can do to help.
