Asyn.
Good Morning.
I am pleased to report that all shields are running normally and will,probably,now continue to do so until the next program update.
I have done some serious thinking on the matter because i had the same problem with the last update and that problem was fixed by you along the same lines as your suggestions this time except all previous versions of Avast and Windows Security Essentials were not removed
From memory Security Essentials had not been tried at that time so it was not necessary to remove any fragments.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions regarding future program updates.
Thanks again for you valuable assistance.
Yours
Philip

1. Good, seems to be fixed now.
2. Just update trough the GUI, when asked to do so. (If you should run into trouble, revive this topic.)
3. You're welcome Philip.

I normally update from the UI but sometimes via the Forum.It depends who has it first.
Do you think it was fragments that caused the problem?
Any further problems after updates i will get back to you

If you love it and can't stop, better do that in a VM. ;)
