Cannot get on the internet after installing avast 4.0
« on: May 04, 2005, 12:34:25 PM »
I installed the new version of  home edition avast.  I rebooted and now when I try to get on the internet my PC cannot, it begins to open but 10 minutes later it is still attempting.  The only way I could get to this forum was to turn off avast to get on the internet to email for help!  How unsafe is this!  I hve windows XP, Dell intell,  and cable hookup to the internet, but that is as far as a techy I can be.  Please speak in non-tech when responding.. Thanks, wgacr

Are you sure you installed avast 4.0, the latest version is 4.6.652?
