I have it now but had to un-install the program. I did not use Avast Clear but by just using the add/remove program in Win98se and then manually deleted the Avast folder before reinstalling. I downloaded the Avast set up program and ran it at which time everything showed as updated but I noticed the standard shield program was missing. It seems to be working fine now.

Oops that is strange. The error code 76B is "The endpoint mapper database entry could not be created. "

I have absolutely no idea what it means. ;)

Haven't you applied some RPC-related security patches recently?
Or something that may be related to this problem? There is really nothing new in this piece of code in av4.1

Thanks

Like I said before, the Avast shield is starting up but after a long delay so my system is unprotected for about 10 minutes after starting.
And i dont recall having patched win 98 with any RPC related patches.

dcliff, I'm glad we've fixed this.

mantra, right now it's better to use the built-in updater. There are some problems with updates from the setup EXE file (at least under Win9x). Of course, reinstallation would do as well but it shouldn't be necessary.

Our investigation so far indicates that the problem only occurs if you do the update by running the setup EXE file (and not by using the built-in updater). Can anyone confirm/deny this?

Vlk, the file vpsupd.exe (update file) cannot be applied to version 4.1.260: Error: 0x00000008 (only works with previous version)...  ???
The updates from Internet are Ok for my XP...  ;)

Guys, how did you do the update?
I mean, from the program (via Internet) using its built-in updater, or by downloading the latest installation EXE and running it?

Our investigation so far indicates that the problem only occurs if you do the update by running the setup EXE file (and not by using the built-in updater). Can anyone confirm/deny this?

I did the update via the built-in updater and had no problem whatsoever.
