{STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR} Boot-time scan problem
« on: December 29, 2012, 01:33:01 AM »


Hi all,
just wondering if anyone had seen this problem I'm running into.
Just downloaded windows 8 on my HP Touch Smart 520 PC
I'm using Avast 7.0.1474.  The boot time scan I ran gave me this message every time something was detected:
File C:\[whatever] Error 0xc000009c {STATUS_Device_DATA_ERROR}
 has anyone had this issue? Any ideas on how to resolve this?

did your HP come with a preinstalled AV?......hp often have a trail version of Norton installed!

did you uninstall it before installing avast?
did you run norton removal tool to clear any leftover files that may conflict?
