So sad to see you go doktor..

Well whenever  there is a malware removal routine,
then that should be handled by a qualified removal specialist and we have quite a few of them here on the forum.

For the ongoing discussion in this thread, why didn't the OP come up with the readings from his event logs?
MyEventViewer will give up the details real quick and an analysis can start.
At least then we have some points to evaluate as where and when his particular "Windhoze" started to "rattle and shake".

Off-the-record I just read that old obsolete Sefnit malware sneaked in under the hood and was missed by MMSRT recently:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/archive/2013/10/25/our-protection-metrics-september-results.aspx

So seen in that light,  these EventViewer data could be valuable to track this down as a real threat,

Hi snOOpy,

Don't go through all this brain damage. Instead, use the Avast Removal Tool (the one for v.9) and then go to:  http://www.oldapps.com/avast_antivirus.php and scroll down to v.8.01489 and use that one.

Ya know, I am very proactive using the Firewall function. There were alot of glitchy things happening for a couple of days after I installed Avast 9.0.2006. No crashes, just freeze screens and firewall notification. I use TCIPUTILS in my Chrome browser, and I found, to my delight, that it will analyze traces I do in the network places function of the firewall. Found a spammer piggybacking in the Avast.UI, and the right click choices gave me the option of killing the address. I did. End of problems. All of them. Every one. You gotta take the step of digging into the true functionality of this program. A gem. I think that this member, and I know this is an uninformed opinion ::) may have a hierarchical glitch in user accounts, if windows. Or, run ipconfig, if not.

sn00py, you could try using the "online installer" for installing the avast program.. some people have said that they had problems with the regular installers but not with the online-installers..

here are links for the online-installers:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=136991.msg1003004#msg1003004

regarding the "malwarebytes" program, i would change its settings so that it doesn't automatically delete the things that it flags.. if it is flagging the avast folder, maybe you can add it to an ignore-list so that it will be ignored by the malwarebytes program..

i don't know if the avast program and the malwarebytes program conflict with each other but since they both have a "webshield", i wouldn't run the two together, at least not with both of their webshields running..

Avast 2014 update on Window XP leads to problem to my PC using Avast 8.0.1489
« Reply #28 on: January 14, 2014, 10:52:47 AM »
 When I updated to Avast 2014 on 24/12/13, my PC give a msg " Page_Fault_in_nonpage_area" on restart. This blue screen appears again after a few restart tries. I have to deactivate Avast and restore my PC to a restore point before this. Restore was successful, but my previous version of Avast (ver8.x) could not run bec expired date and when I try to register it online i got a RPC error. So I uninstall this version and re-install using an older version Avast 8.0.1489.300. Installation successful. But when I click on to update the virus definition file it stay at step 1 "initialization , please wait..." for more than an hour and nothing seems to progress further. I cannot update the virus definition file and that is no good. Can any expert help me!
MY PC  runs on window XP SP3 . I have Zone Alarm free Firewall running but no other antivirus on my PC.

Hi Greyhound,

That happens to me too when I try a manual update and it's already updated. Best bet is to check the box that you're permanently connected to the internet, auto update and it will update when there's an update.

You can also control how long the popup window stays, too.
