1vecher1, hello and welcome to avast forum!

Post in English please or use Russian subforum: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=28.0.
Unfortunately we haven't got official answer from avast! team about this issue. Did you try install avast 8 and then upgrade to 9 version?

----------------------------------------------
1vecher1, здравствуйте и добро пожаловать на форум!

Вы находитесь в англоязычной ветке, и поэтому пишите на английском языке или используйте русскоязычную ветку форума:  http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=28.0.
К сожалению, разработчики антивируса не дают никаких разъяснений по данной проблеме. Вы пробовали установить 8 версию и обновиться до 9?

Не стесняйтесь задавать вопросы, если Вам что-то непонятно. Желаем удачи!

Go to C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\Setup and copy file HTMLayout.dll to C:\Windows\System32.  :)

I spoke with tech support today after a week of no response to my email support requests.  I was told the issue was my computer and that I needed $179 Avast support or for my computer to be cleaned up by a professional.

I declined their suggestion and went on to search for other answers.  Thankfully, I found this forum and was able to download from a file posted here.  It seems to be working fine now.  I did however have a malware problem that was downloaded to my computer while my Avast software was not working.  I  hope I have cleaned that up.

Shame on them for not taking responsibility.  I didn't have any problems until the Avast software downloaded and tanked.

Yeah I also called Avast, and basically they told me it was a windows problem and that I should have my computer serviced every 2-3 months, but for the low one time fee of $179.00 they would fix my problem.  I said I would like to get a second opinion before spending that much, then he pretty much yelled at me and asked me why I would want to give my credit card info  to some technician over the phone.  When I pointed out that was what he was asking me to do, he asked if I had any other question, "No, but I...".  That's as far as I got he hung up on me!  Will be finding another anti virus software program!

Just found this fix took me 20 seconds and everything works fine, no thanks to avast.  Still will look for another internet security program, because their tech could not fix what it took me 10 minutes on the internet to find.

Step 1: Browse to the c:\Program Files\Avast Software\Avast\Setup
Step 2: Copy the HTMLayout.dll
Step 3: Browse to the c:\Windows\System
Step 4: Paste the HTMLayout.dll into this directory.

Hi,

I recently installed Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition on my computer (Windows 8) and this bug began occurring. I tried all  methods (including copying HTMLayout.dll to Windows/System, Windows/System32, and Windows/SysWow64) and they all did not work, causing the message to still appear.

What can I do to solve this?

So I had this error and re-downloaded avast from one of those links and it worked, avast works now, only its the free version and not the Pro version that I PAID FOR. And whenever I try to log it in it says that my access has been denied. Please fix this, I have had avast for years and am getting fed up with it, might be looking for a new antivirus if it isn't fixed.
