so - did anyone ever figure out why the rpc error suddenly comes us and can't be remedied? and why when the directions say to turn off avast! and then turn on - it won't turn back on? And why now my computer is relatively unprotected?
does purchasing the home version help?
Since this is your first post, I assume you have the same problem, or what you think is the same problem as OsoVega, the person who started this thread.
It may help if you could provide the followiing information:-
What Operating system (98,98SE, XP-Home, XP-Pro, Vista etc) do you have, and what update service packs are installed?
What is the type and speed of your CPU, and how much memory does you PC have?
What fireall software do you have installed (and the version)?
What version of Avast! do you have installed, and what is the VPS (update) file version?
Do you have any other security/antispyware suites or programs installed?
Have you tried repairing/uninstalling/reinstalling the latest Avast?
The Home Edition of Avast is free, it's the Professional Edition that can be purchased, however I don't believe doing that would solve this particular problem.
