PA.c Platform 10.0 Updater freezes taskbar when updating

PortableApps.com Platform 10.0 :
Whenever I manually ask the Updater to search for updates my taskbar freezes. At the same time the PA.c startmenu also freezes. This lasts a long as it takes to search for updates. I can not imagine that this should happen normally.

Are you aware of this happening ?
Is a solution on the way ?
Is there something I can do to provide additional information ?

I am running Windows Vista x86

3 weeks 6 days

It has been 3 weeks 6 days since I posted this question and I'm wondering if this post was missed ? The freezes are still there.. Anyone ?

More Info

What antivirus are you running? Does it occur if you disable your antivirus' realtime protection (TEMPORARILY. Be sure to re-enable) and check for updates? Have you had this happen on other PCs?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

What antivirus am I running?

Avast! Antivirus.

Like you suggested I disabled all shields (realtime protection) and ran an update. Although there was still some freezing of the taskbar, I did notice it was for a much shorter duration.
Could it be that Avast is interfering with the "read or write, but not both at the same time" rule which applies to FAT32 pendrives ?
Is white-listing an option ?

I run Avast and have never

I run Avast and have never seen an issue like this on Win 7 or XP.

If it actually has something to do with Avast, it is either due to differing configurations, or must be restricted to Vista only.
