Haha freestylegreek, ever been running an avast Professional Edition keygen? Beucase these are known to hose up avast installations in this way.  ;)
The solution is to delete the aswCmn*.dll files from the system32 folder. There should be only 1 copy of those, in the avast folder.
Thanks
Vlk

Hihihi... this is unbelievable how easy is to track some things... and best of all, people from Alwil are still helping... even if it comes to cracked (or better say "keygen-ed") version of avast! Pro...  ;D

Cheers !

Let's just say that the keygen authors are rather "lame" (to use the field terminology ;D) - and also use tools that are (suprisingly) bad.
