AJones, do you have any idea what the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\SYNCOR11.DLL on your machines is? I found it while analysis the crash dumps you have sent to me.

Do you know what it belongs to? Can you open its Properties and see the Version tab - what does it show?


Thanks
Vlk

I have Pentium 4 2.7 GHz Celeron Processor, A search for SYNCOR11.DLL did not result.  I may not have this file.   I have another file in C:/WINNT/System32/SYNCUI.DLL

Thanx Vlk

Please try running http://www2.asw.cz/~vlk/evptest2.exe and post the results.

Also, please open My Computer, click Help -> About Windows and post a screenshot of the About box.

OK, that explains it!

You seem to be using the RC (release candidate) version of XP SP2. This version is deprecated and you shouldn't be using it.

Please update your system to the official SP2. This will resolve all the problems.


Thanks

PoLak:

I went to http://download.microsoft.com and downloaded Windows XP SP2 and ran that on my computer. It over wrote the older one, & since then Avast works. Microsoft sites states use the Autoupdate feature for single user, but the Autoupdate icon on my computer did not progress beyond 3% since last night. So today, I downloaded SP2 around 275 MBytes.

Vlk Thanks, Could you remove the screen image that I posted. I notice that my C:\WINNT folder is around 2.5 GBytes, Is there a way to remove SP1, I presume this SP2 wrote over the previous SP2 becoz it did not ask me for archival.

I am impressed with Avast, I recommended to our Public Library administrator to not renew Norton License next year instead use Avast. Lets see what she does with it.

Good Job Guys.

You could not download SP2 OR new SP2 did not get Avast working? If this does not work, My recommendation is Remove Avast, clean using a registry cleaner, wait for some time when newer updated Avast comes, download and load. Thats exactly what I wanted to do, if it did not work for me.
