Avast and Chrome?
« on: February 07, 2010, 05:36:43 PM »
I just got avast anti virus someone told me it was great to have
I like it but now it wont let me load up Yahoo Messenger nor Chrome,
But does allow me to open Firefox which i find weird
and cant find in the settings how to allow them so it doesn't block them
Avast never gave me a notice that it was blocking them either,
but it seemed it stopped working when i installed it....


any help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you Rileigh

What version are you using, Pro or Free?

Do you get any error messages when you try to start YM or Chrome?
