Apologies for not reporting this in the bug section but I can't access that without registering my software, and entering my serial code does nothing.
After installing fusion 2.5, I began the breakout tutorial. Upon trying to 'run frame' the program stopped responding. After several clicks to exit, windows tried to check for a solution but the message froze. After more clicking, windows asked if I wanted to kill the fusion 2.5 process but nothing happened. I then pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del and tried to manually kill it, but that also didn't work. In the end I shut down my PC, rebooted and started the program again.
This time, with an new empty project, I selected to 'run application' instead of frame and the same issues occurred, exactly as above. After rebooting my PC once more, I tried to uninstall the program and after a delay, the uninstaller popped up and froze almost immediately. Interestingly, there appeared to be some kind of avast tab above the progress bar. I rebooted my PC again, this time in safe mode, and successfully uninstalled fusion.
After restarting my PC again in normal mode, I re-installed fusion (running as administrator), shut off my internet, killed avast and began the breakout tutorial again. I added the first condition and successfully ran the frame. At this point I turned both avast and my internet connection back on. I continued through the tutorial, successfully using both 'run frame' and 'run application' between adding two more conditions; however, the fourth time I tried to run frame/application (I can't remember which), the program again froze and couldn't be killed. Once more it could not be uninstalled either, though this time absolutely nothing happened or showed on screen when I tried (the uninstall process did show up in my task manager but couldn't be stopped; I had to restart in safe more again to remove it).
At this point I can't be 100% sure Avast is the culprit, as fusion worked for ten minutes or so with it turned on. Unfortunately, if it is the source of the problem, having my internet and anti-virus off for long periods is not an option for me. I'm also reluctant to try anything else at this point, as all this resetting with processes hanging probably isn't doing my PC any good.
Can you let me know if this is a known issue or something on my end. I cannot enter the bug tracker to check without registering my software and that's not working for me.
