Another important thing to know ... when AVAST objects, it should tell you a filepath, and we need to know that piece of information.

If you chose to uninstall Avast, the log of that filepath is gone, as well as what was in quarantine (Chest). 

Otherwise, you can find the filepath to all detections here:
C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\log\Warning.log

Double clicking on the Warning.log will automatically open in Notepad, which you can copy/paste into a reply.

Hey Shax  :)

Avast user too.  Maybe this will help.

Quote from: Shax
In the Avast Chest, I can open it, but when I try and cut/paste, it just repeats the above logfiles!?

The easiest way to obtain information about what is in the Avast chest (quarantine), as well as detections, is to navigate to the Warning.log

It is saved here:
C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\log\Warning.log

Double clicking on the Warning.log will automatically open in Notepad, which you can copy/paste into a reply to LzD.

Hey all,

I put a few extra balls in the air that I am juggling  
I'll be back regularly when I get them a bit more synchronized.

In the meanwhile, I expect that all you Landzdowners are minding your 'P's & 'Q's!!

You do have my permission to bug any member in red tho (with the exception of GR@PH;<'S ...that's my task )

Ripley may recognize the location.
Of course, beyond the smiles of 2 beautiful young girls clearly enjoying who they are experiencing this moment with,
I see that it's 10:20 PM (and past your bedtime!  :lol:) and 74 degrees?!  Those ferns are to die for!  Nice pic! 
Plus tunes!  You go girl!

Actually, if it was last year, it would be during the week we are in now.  Believe me, I only remember as this Friday, August 1st, will be when the 35W Bridge collapsed wreaking havoc in this area where you were visiting.
Oh the memories, eh?

@BG, I expect to see a desktop "tout de suite"...that would be French for: follow Aaron's instructions.  That's what I do, and it works!

Good questions as the "naming" of settings inside browsers and how they correspond to website effects, are a bit of a challenge for me.  Plus add to the confusion, the message thrown at the youtube site specifically mentions "javascript."
I am running IE 6.0 and the closest setting I can see to your quote is
Disable Script debugging (IE Explorer)
Disable Script debugging (other)
I have them both enabled/ticked.
I have IE7, but my recollection is that those 2 settings are in the "advanced" tab, and yes I have them checked/disabled as well.  One thing I noted about the "advanced" tab is that changes there effect all zones, not just individual zones, so I don't mess with them with out knowing what the effect is.  Those 2 settings don't apply in this case.
I also see in my Add and Remove I have:
Adobe Flash Player ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player Plug-in
Adobe Shock Player Ver. 11
Flashplayer is needed, Shockwave Player is not, in watching youtubes.  You also have the latest version of Flashplayer...which is a good thing for security reasons.

At the default setting of med-high in IE7 in the Internet Zone, youtubes view fine.
On IE6...the default is medium but <scratches head trying to remember> I am guessing it would be under Active-X Controls & Plugins > the last 2, or Scripting > Active scripting, either set to prompt or enable, is what you have that allows it to work.

And dickw?
Remember the cardinal rule...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!  :lol:

Hey dickw  :)

To my knowledge/experience, you don't need Java, as in the SunJava that we update & remove the older versions, to view youtubes.
I speak of javascript, which is not related to Java, but is confusing due to the names being similar.
Enabling JavaScript is a setting in your browser, and having it disabled will cause the youtube "video" to be missing and a message thrown about needing an updated FLASHplayer or some such.
I surf with my javascript disabled, and then allow it on a site by site basis using NoScript add-on in Firefox.  Thought maybe BG might have been doing the same.

Ah...ya don't need to be a softy to enjoy the humanity displayed in that was quite special, even though short lived.

Was that ever DARLING!  BIG smile and tears in the eyes watching it!  Does your heart good to watch! 
And I was just listening to "Born Free" yesterday, go figure  :dance:

Thanks for sharing that dickw.

I am not getting a "removed" message do need javascript enabled though. 

Maybe check that BG, otherwise here is the same tube link that dickw used, except the "search" code at the end is removed, and this one runs stateside, not through the UK one:

Plus dickw's has Whitney singing in it  :thumbsup: :lol:

Guilty!  I am a woman in love with Russell Watson and Haley Westernra!
Was pleasantly surprised that another kiwi artist would grab my attention beyond Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, but Haley has it!

The computer had been temporarily moved to the back pond, and is almost completely dried out now, so I will leave you all with the video that comes to mind after a work week from heck and even though I don't do alot of country, adore this song...

It's a Twain thingy...won a Grammy...go figure:
I'm going out tonight - I'm feelin' alright
Gonna let it all hang out
Wanna make some noise
Really raise my voice
The best thing about being woman
Is the prerogative
To have a little fun...

For those ZA people following, the Checkpoint/ZA press release page we are discussing is here

As of the time of this post, there is a version update for the paid version:

Recommended Actions -

Download and install latest versions here:
# ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
# Come back here for other product versions to be released soon - or follow the directions below.

I am using a free version, so have no further info on whether it works.

Since you are following the DSLR thread, you know that ZA has changed their press release ... from the last and worst option being to set the slider, to that now being option 1.
Yes, saw that.  You might end up with a job offer coming your way  :lol:

At this point, I think it is up to ZA to fix this issue.  I think Microsoft has done what needs to be done regarding this security flaw.
That's what my grey matter came up with as well.
As I stated above, it makes more sense to make this MS update the priority, or get another firewall.  I'll be watching Checkpoint's response.

Having alittle more time to read through all this here, at broadbandreports (link above), and giving up over at ZA forums, who are swamped with multiple threads, it made more sense to me to install KB 951748 and make the reasonable temp workaround in ZA. 
Had I not been behind a router, I don't know if I'd make a choice to reduce the security level of my firewall however.

As best I can understand this DNS issue, and the "coordinated" effort of those vendors, including MS to issue these patches, it seems that having the KB 951748 goes beyond "important."

Was sooo appreciative that Winchester73 took the time to futz with the possible workarounds and report it.  Better you than me around firewalls and troubleshooting connection issues.

These are the type of "experiences" that get reported online that cause people to disregard or ignore certain OS security updates beyond the time of fixes or alternatives, and actually leave themselves in a more vulnerable position in the long run it seems. 

Once again Winchester73, thank you for the heads up...twas "hearing" violins playing hero cowboy music all day today  :lol:
