avast!: The AAVM Subsystem detected a RPC error.

"avast!: The AAVM Subsystem detected a RPC error.
The operation could not be completed."

I've had Avast! Home for some time now, and then today, I start up windows like I normally does, then I see that the "blue avast ball" has a red mark on it today. I right click it, click "On-Access Protection Control" and this comes up... Any help, please?

Do you have any other antivirus installed in your computer?
Did you have in the past? Which one?
RPC error is generally related to other antivirus present or, at least, firewall blocking. Do you use a firewall? Which one?

Anyway, RPC error is most likely correct by this procedure:
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the pop up window (Repair).

1. It can't uninstall from there, says I miss a file somehow. Weird.
2. I don't have any firewalls or other antiviruses... Not even the SP2 Firewall (Using SP1 cause SP2 simple sucks!).

So, err... Now what?

I assume that you have done a forum search for AAVM?

I can't see where you got the uninstall instruction from in this thread, Technical is suggesting Repair (read again how to repair). The fact that you can't uninstall because of a missing file, would point to an incomplete install, that's why it was suggested you repair avast.

Sorry, what I meant was that I can't repair it. And I've had avast for a long time, and it just suddenly did this. So obviously my installation of avast was completed succesfully o_O;

Like Cloussau said, most probably there is a problem in your installation.
Why can't you repair?
What is the error message that you get?

- Use the uninstall util from the website
- Reboot
- Install Avast

Does this solves it?


I strongly suggest you install SP2. If you don't you will have many security holes on your system unpatched and that will make your system very vulnarable for infections and attacks. SP2 is working fine.

Not installing it, is just asking for problems.

Plus there will come a time when MS windows update will insist on installation of SP2. MS issued a program to defer the SP2 update, I think that was a 90 days at a time. I also believe that it was mentioned that come March/April 2005 even that would not stop SP2 being offered as a critical update. You can of course choose to ignore it as you have.

Virtually all of the major e-newsletters after having suggested people hold off on SP2 now recommend it.

I will NOT install SP2. I've had it, it's the worst crap you can get. It also forced me to format one of my PC's because it is such a bunch of pure bugs (I couldn't even open windows or anything!). I will never install it again, specially because of it's firewall. I hate it. Don't try to make me install SP2, I just get angry :/

Btw, the time where I had to format isn't more than 2 weeks ago, so it haven't improved, and it will never improve.

Anyways, I'll try downloading the uninstall tool :)
