Good to hear :) obviously there was conflict there then, as I mentioned earlier you would have the same results with the exclusions set for avast and MBAM, the way you have gone about it simply means your missing out on the extra protection provided by Malwarebytes and I know what I'd choose ;D

Yes, I would check, if avast works OK for a few days...
...and if so, I would reinstall MBAM Pro and set the right exclusions. (Craig can help you with that.)

Thanks Asyn
To my mind Malwarebytes is not compatible with Avast unless you set the exclusions.
Setting exclusions is a real pain in the neck and i would rather not do it.
I have had Avast for a long time and never had any problems with viruses.
I just added Malwarebytes because i thought it would give a bit more protection which it did with the version that i was using.
It is only with this new version that has caused problems with Avast.
I believe that if a program doesn't work,dump it,don't waste time trying to make i work.That leads to frustration.
Thank you for all your help it really is much appreciated.
Best Regards
