    Well, although it seemed to have been improved (didn't have problems for a few days), the AIS Firewall started biting again.
    This is in idle; firewall crumbles when running uTorrent:

    Disable FW, all is OK.

    are you sure about this, it is created by firewall, i do not konow your expert level of computer, but utorrent creates too many connection so firewall is handling those connection. see in the firewall section how many connection is created by the utorrent. some issue (matters) will not be allowed to discus here (wilders). so i am sorry i can't write the explanation fully, but the point i like to stress only one point thats is how many connection is created by utorrent, if it is in hundereds it will be ok with firewall, but if it in thousand then there lies problem. firewall is interupting each and every connection and try to define safe or not. so thats it from side. if you want detail info better invoke this issue in firewall section. may be stem firewall genious will explain little bit indepth technically. best of luck for that answer as well solution hunting by you. bye bye :D

    Of course, uT creates many connections and as such is a great stability test for firewalls. From all the FWs I've tried, AIS' FW was/is the only one with such a grave performance problem. All others coped well with many uT connections in terms of resource usage (or at least a lot better than AIS). :)

    There's another pre-release candidate from Avast. It's ver 6.0.1044.

    http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74515.0

    Letting us try it out again even though some of the problems that were identified are still there. Why don't they just solve it first and then give us a build that's less than problematic. I tend to sense that they are using the Avast users as beta-testers of some sort... Some issues aren't solved yet especially the BSOD with Win7 x64 and they are at it again giving a build a week. Why not delay releasing if issues are not yet solved or at least contained....

    If you ask them there you get a blank wall or no answer....

    :(

    Well, we ARE talking about a beta build here, aren't we? ;)

    What BSOD with Win7 x64 are you talking about, exactly?

    Thanks

    Here are some. And if you have read all the posts for the RC announcements you have at the avast forums you will see some that were not even commented on or awaiting comment/help. The Wilders' thread has some experiencing it:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=293683&page=8

    Also on that particular wilder's thread some where asking something that there was no reply( they were hoping it will come from you but then again.....

    http://forum.avast.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=1ip92kh2988ingk77v4c30h553&topic=74304.0 (solved already) Here some pointed to Outpost/Comodo....

    https://forums.comodo.com/empty-t70915.0.html

    The sevenforums says otherwise about avast....

    There are a lot of issues unsolved or left-out or well not given attention there...they just die down or leave because they don't get the help they need or something...

    You have a great product but sometimes people need help especially those who are not very technically efficient and when they do not get help or help will be stagnant then....and of course you have rushed things for ver6 and that is/was a fact.
