Okay, so running R2, I've been experiencing some issues with OpenVas.

Mind you I'm running BT5 on an older machine and I HAVE googled on the subject, just to lose patience and attention to not finding an answer.

Problem 1, I know this one is known, but I didn't see any resolutions: After creating a task, and clicking to start it, it just sits at requesting, then after about a min or two freezes my computer. Did I miss a solution to actually having an active progress bar?

Problem 2. I've yet to find a direct way to update openvas from 3 to 4. Did I miss an update command?
