    I right-clicked to scan a downloaded file before opening it ( I always do this for safety) and avg 7.5 froze, even the tasbar icon would not respond, nor would the main interface. So I rebooted, all fine now.
    In the logfile.txt it said....
    application start was blocked because of several instances..synchronize database and filecache.

    What causes this?

    It would be nice to know if some other users are having any problem with a context scan of an unopened downloaded file as I am. I also know of someone else now. Any replies please?

    You can reproduce this problem with the context menu scan (maybe with other files)?
