Avast! & explorer.exe issue

Most times I try to insert an SD card to upload photos to my computer or try to finish scanning photos on my computer, the explorer bar freezes up on my computer. If I end the explorer.exe process and restart everything is fine, and sometimes I can even reinsert the SD card/rescan without a problem. I'm pretty sure there is some type of interference with Avast! because if I disable Avast! and then insert my SD card/scan a photo, nothing goes wrong (from what I can tell). While this isn't a life or death issue (since I have a current work-around), it is extremely annoying. Any ideas on how to tweak Avast! so this won't happen or other fixes to this issue? Is this a known issue with Avast!? Any help would be great. My computer is an EeePC Netbook (1000HA) running XP home edition.

Wish I could have stuck with Avast!, but I have to say that switching to Avira did work. :)

Trust me, really equal programs. I'd probably even give Avira a slight edge.
