    Avast! 4.6.603 Final released!

    What's new:
    * Added the new "Web Shield" resident provider for on-access scanning of HTTP traffic. Under NT-based systems, it should work automatically. On Win9x, you have to tell your browser to use HTTP proxy 127.0.0.1 on port 12080.
    * Added NNTP (Usenet News) scanner to the Internet Mail provider. Under NT-based systems, it works transparently; under Win9x, the Mail Protection Wizard will help you set up the account (Outlook Express only).
    * Added new unpacker for Outlook Express archives (.dbx files)
    * Fixed crashing of the program when it found a boot/MBR virus
    * The updater should now work with the default proxy settings even if IE is set to the "Work Offline" mode
    * Avast now distinguishes between various malware categories and reports them differently.
    * Greatly optimized memory footprint of the avast processes (especially ashServ.exe)
    * Added support for long license keys (8-digit customer number)
    * The Explorer Extension scanner should now work even under 64-bit Windows
    * Under 64-bit Windows, the scan of the SYSTEM32 directory now works correctly
    * Fixed the problem with very slow start of the avast on-access scanner service on certain Windows 2000 configurations with MS Outlook installed
    * Fixed some problems in the GZIP unpacker
    * Optimized CAB and CHM unpackers
    * Fixed problems related with on-access scanning of named pipes (Windows NT/2000/XP Standard Shield)
    * Hyperlinks in configuration property sheets now finally have correct background color
    * Attempt to fix sound-related problems under Win9x
    * Added links to certain FAQ entries on the Web
    * Avast now correctly registers in the Windows Security Center under Windows 64-bit
    * Fixed certain conflicts with copy-protected programs (AsProtect) under Win9x
    * Warnings about suspicious e-mails (heuristics) are now displayed correctly even under terminal services environments (and while using the Fast User Switching feature in Windows XP)
    * Added Romanian and Bulgarian language packs

    Those of you already using Avast! hit your update.

    My ashweb keeps crashing.
    When does it crash ?

    Go to ADD & Remove, click Avast and choose Repair while your on line, then reboot.

    I thought you went back to KAV & NOD32 ?

    Let me know cuz no one is reporting ashweb crash....

    [edit] someone just reported ashweb crash, they sent the crash log to Vlk and he's checking it out....

    C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashWebSv.exe caused an Access Violation at location 20b0a93b in module imon.dll Writing to location 00000008.
    Is that what you have ? isn't "imon.dll " a NOD32 ?

    Yes but I have disabled NOD and it still crashes - I went back to Avast because you want a theme designed after it - who's ya buddy?

    Even with Imon disabled it still conflicts with Webshield, Weshield uses basic windows function and Imon doesn't.

    Verdict...get rid of Imon, avast has a patch that disables Imon but its not reversible unless you reinstall NOD32. Or don't use Webshield.

    If your using NOD32 as stand alone scanner (why?), Bitdefender 7 free works real good with Avast
