I very often have to restart the webshield after a new start of my pc
with avast 4.6, because otherwise I will get only error-messages in my
browser (site not reachable)
Second thing is: I installed avast 4.5 free version and now after an
update using the buildt-in update-function I have a server-version 4.6
and my license will end on may,3rd :-(.
Are you experiencing the same problems?
Re: Avast Web shield; unwanted update to Server version
Ok, an update to my last on the browser time-out problem. Seems this is
just beginning to show up and appears to be massive and related to the ASH-
WebShield. On the Avast Forums I found a posted zip file, (ashwebsv.zip)
that I had to download and extract to the Alwil\Avast program directory.
Read the thread and get the patch here:
If you do this, you are on your own! I have not seen any XP-IE6SP2 browser
freezes or time-outs since installing this patch but then I just did it
about an hour ago..
