Issue upgrading to 7.0.1451
« on: July 01, 2012, 02:12:53 PM »
Yesterday I noticed that Avast Free was stating a later version of the program was available, so I decided to upgraded. All went well and there were no errors.

After the machine had rebooted I logged in and got to the desktop (Windows XP Pro) and found that whatever I clicked on would not start, in the end I had to use task manager to shutdown the PC (this took a very long time to close down).

I tried booting several times but always had the same issue.

Eventually I booted into safe mode & unistalled Avast. I then rebooted into normal mode and downloaded the latest version, I then restored settings and all is now well.

I thought I'd post this to help others who may be experiencing similar issues and also to see if anyone can work out reasons why this may be occuring.

Windows 8.1, i7 12GB RAM 500GB SSD, Avast Free
