HTMLayout.dll missing
« on: November 22, 2013, 01:49:29 AM »
Message: The program can't start because HTMLayout.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

This is the first time I've had any problem with Avast. I tried reinstalling. Wouldn't work. Tried uninstalling. Wouldn't work. HELP!

When I went to my account, I discovered that my new computer is not included in my list of devices. How do I correct this?

I have a very easy solution to this.  It is a slight modification to the post above mine.  This fix did not require a reinstall of Avast!

Step 1:  Browse to the c:\Program Files\Avast Software\Avast\Setup
Step 2:  Copy the HTMLayout.dll
Step 3:  Browse to the c:\Windows\System
Step 4:  Paste the HTMLayout.dll into this directory.

Now launch Avast! Internet Security.
This took me to a splash screen that says "Complete your upgrade to Avast! 2014
It had only a Continue button, I clicked it, and now the Avast GUI come up just fine.

Try these steps and let me know if they work.  This fix did not require a reinstall of Avast!
