Repair avast!:
1. Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs -> avast!
2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.

As I said earlier in the thread, during repair or uninstalling via the CPanel, it gets near the end and locks up during the execution of "VisthAux.exe"

The user in the post below is going to reinstall Windows, let's see whether it is a solution.

Ok thanks. I'll do this tonight/tomorrow when I get some free time. Will report back.
You're welcome.
OK, awaiting your logs.
Ok finally got MBAM to complete the scan, here are my logs :

Any ideas? Thanks again for attempting to help me sort this. Really want to use avast, it just seems hell-bent on not working.

Please also attach your OTL log(s).

Sorry, what is a OTL? OldTimer? I googled, but never heard of that software before.

Ok got the logs, but I don't feel exactly safe posting them publicly. Not trying to be difficult, I dunno. I'm just a bit paranoid and weary I guess. Is this absolutely needed?

Thanks for all the help, btw.

1. If you don't want to post them, I can only suggest to try the latest beta. -> http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=148633.0

I suppose I'll try that.

Nothing personal, I just don't care to have my info out in the open like that. Thanks so much for all the help, everyone. Any fixes happen, let me know. I'll try the beta and report back.

Did you clean install the Beta (i.e. removed all of Avast ) ?

If you are running the latest MBAM could you temporarily uninstall it and see if the problem continues
