Weird message on - Start Avast! Antivirus
« on: January 08, 2005, 05:39:13 PM »
Hi
Getting a weird message on starting avast, displays the Splash screen for memory/start up check OK and then stops and presents a box showing the following message:

Unknown Error (in box) and then this message;
Application cannot load skin.  Function "usiGetSkin" Failed.

Message appears exactly as I have written it, capital letters and all.

Any ideas, I have re-installed Avast and it went OK at first, but, it is now doing it again.

Cheers
Johnboy

This is a regularly discussed topic in these forums, try a search for "usiGetSkin" in the search window at the top of every page. This is just one of them, http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=8230;start=msg66960#msg66960
