Shields
« on: November 03, 2012, 09:15:53 AM »
Every Morning when i boot there are some shields not working.
This Morning it is web and behavior.
When i closed down the computer last night they were all working that is after i did a clean install.
There seem to be a number of postings along the same lines.So it sounds like we need an update to fix.the problem.
The previous version worked perfectly.
It is becoming very noticeable that after a program update there are always problems that take some time to sort out. As soon as they are sorted  we have more updates and more problems and so it goes on.
IS it really necessary to have update after update?I don't think so.
Regards.

Oh dear
All shields were working perfectly yesterday on my W7 computer.
This Morning Web.Behavior,Mail and Script not working.
I have tried everything i can think of but still no joy
This is very annoying because everything on my XP works perfectly.
The only other security i have is Malwarebytes Pro and Windows Firewall
Please can some kind person give my some advice.I would be most grateful.
Regards.

Script shield now seems to be working.

First, be sure to get rid of all remnants of your prior installed AVs..!!!
-> http://singularlabs.com/uninstallers/security-software/

Then:
1. Download avast! Free Antivirus: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
2. Follow instructions: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed avast! versions..!!)
3. Reinstall avast! with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.
