Agree with your point but thats the way avast work. And apart from time/resourse lost there are no security risk.
Hi gautam7,

Yeah. That is a difference I learned from Avast and my other security apps. All apps do differ from each other like HIPS component. Well it's not like that all the time. I seems to see it's only on some files that repacked to hide or mask something else as with encrypted stuff. It's just a minor thing and NOT an issue. No worries really. Either way the user is protected and that is great!

On a lighter note I hope Avast will include in it's AIS the capability of it's firewall to terminate a connection.

Running latest ver on Win 7x64 Ultimate. I don't see anyone complaining about the speed of Avast I might have a bad load or something else. The scan speed is fine. But when I click to bring it up it takes forever and sometimes it stops responding when I am changing windows. Anyone else see this...
