Hi all.
I have a problem between the tor.exe and from the avast-virus scanner called ashserv.exe.
When i started my system and i go to the Internet with firefox (avast is started from the autostart).
Next step i klick manually privoxy and vidalia.
After 10-20sek. the cpu goes up to 100% from ashserv.exe and when i killed tor.exe with the taskmanager
or the exit button from vidalia the cpu goes normally.
After 10-20min. later i run vidalia with the tor client and no problems.
But after 1-2 hour later the same problem.

I tried from the vidalia-bundle 01.2.15 to 17 and from the alpha up to
Today i installed the alpha (no problem in this minutes but... by all new installations from vidalia
my system goes normally.
But next day the same problem. :-(

My System:
3300+ Semperon
1Gig Ram

all updates from microsoft (I hope ore better not ;-) )
Avast 4.7 Home Edition
Sygate Personal Firewall
Firefox with the torbutton

What can i do?

For a test, disable avast and see how Tor/Vidalia behaves.
