Impressed by favourable reviews, I've tried to install Avast 4.6 from 3 different sources and get a "Stack Overflow" message each time.

I see below your post: "
AMD Duron1.3 / 256Mb Ram / Win98se updated /  Firefox 1.0.1 / Thunderbird 1.0 / Ad-aware / Spybot Search & Destroy / Win Patrol / AVG 7.289 / Avast 4.6 / Fastmail.fm /

Don't keep 2 antivirus on your machine.

When exactly do you get this error message?

Yes, I should have been more specific.  The error occurs right at the start of the installation process, just after accepting the eula. 

I know I shouldn't have 2 antiviruses - and I won't have if I manage to install Avast!

What operating system are you using? Can you quote the exact error message you're getting?
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Get a "Stack Overflow" message each time.

Will this help? http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=11324.0

I don't think this helps - the message occurs in entirely different circs.  Thanks all the same

Win98se updated

It's a smallish windows window, in a win 3.1 font, which says "Stack overflow".  I'll have to try the installation again to be more precise ..

Exact details:

The error message occurs right after accepting the licence agreement, in the form of a smallish white window with the text:

Program Error
stack overflow

and a Close button.  On pressing this, the avast! instal program ends.
I should add that the 2nd antivirus program wasn't running at the time.
And that avast! installation works fine on another machine - with a PII and the same version of Windows.

Hi all,
I found a cool progam on western digital called disk lifeguard.....i think, anyways it copies your hard drive and it works perfect......accept some avast things didnt copy and i tried to reinstall it and got that buffer overfow thing.
I deleted the avast program folder and reinstalled again and that worked ok.
hope that helps.

Thanks Cartel, but I'm not copying a disk, I'm simply trying to instal Avast!  And it's Stack not buffer overflow.
