I removed AVG 8 from my Eeee notepad because it was having updating problems and installed Avast. When loading a web site into Firefox 3 it would crash,

I went to settings in Avast & un-ticked "Test memory during application start up" and it is Ok now.

Thats rather odd... limited to the EeePC? or perhaps a bug in general?

avast's default setting is to run a scan at startup I usually disable it to save boot time

Started to crash again, so had to remove Avast & reinstall AVG. Seems to be Ok now. All other computers are on Avast with no problems.

Could be that the Eeee pc is running Tiny a pruned version of xp pro. No other problems on it.
