Windows Vista 64bit freezes at the progress bar Avast 8 Final
« on: February 28, 2013, 09:46:05 PM »
Hi today I saw an update at Avast 7 and I installed Avast 8 but there's a problem. When I restart the computer windows freezes at the progress bar and nothing works anymore. I had to delete avast in safe mode.

I temporaly installed avira because I can't find the avast 7 and 8 doesn't work. And I'm pissed! There are other people too who don't  know what to do if such thing happens! That is very bad! Please fix it! I really wan't to avoid to turn my computer off again to get to the safe mode and delete it again at the new program version. I don't have time for that. My computer is in a good condition and well if you can't fix this problem I have to find another antivirus.

Nice day everyone!

Well I actually liked avast very much since 2010 I never had problems with virus anymore. I also had not very much money that time to buy me an antivirus that really protects you from malware.

I of course can buy a Kaspersky or G-Data anyway the best. But I wanted to promote avast! Because it always enough denfence. Just now the version 8 destroyed everything! I have to buy soon a new antivirus and I surely won't buy a program that doesn't work!!!

Don't care really. Hope avast will fix it till Monday!

I'll stay to the 7.x version, Hope that the VPS will be updated even if we don't have the 8.x version

sorry but it seams that actually Avast 8 does not work on vista 64 bits.
i try the proposed solution with or without aswclear.exe .. the result is the same : the vista progress bar freeze at reboot.
I thinks that only V7.0.1474 works on vista 64.
but .... after using aswclear.exe, it is impossible to return to 7.0.1474 internet suite as this needs an update from the setup i use and after again this is the hell...
I hope that you can give us a real solution for this.

After many tests, it work with avast 8.0.1482 only in free edition.
Every time i try to insert my licence file or try directly an internet suite download, this ends with Vista X64 progressbar freezed at reboot.
Feel free to email me for more informations.
