LOL

Great to see everyone staying on topic  :P

Soz about the slow reply, between work and holding the baby cos my partner decides ( no sense of timimg at all ) to be ill, it's been a bit hectic.

As for stone tablets... I don't do drugs :)
Yes its XP but I have restore OFF as default (even though I have 140 gig HD I was running outta space, so temporarily no restore .... Sods law of course..Oh well :)  )

ok Serious face on now.
(Screws up face but has difficulty staying serious)

I am using the home edition, IE it's free for non commercial, use. Was issued with a free registration number months ago, although strangley at the start I was told the prog would need re-registered every 3 months, but that has never been requested.

Avast tech support have kindly replied, and tell me I either need to reinstall or get a new key. Guess I will try a reinstall first, assuming I can find the origonal install exe, just hope the uninstall removes any date ref in the registry, which I assume is where the problem lies.

So while I do that I will leave you guys to discuss your wardrobe.

thx for quick reply..

I am beginning to think you live in here :)

I like your title "Avast evangelist".. Sorta like a holy roller type in a daft hat  I guess :) Is it a well paid position I wonder. Do you give those blood and thunder sermons, where everyone cries and shouts hallehlulah Avast n all that stuff.. ( mind you it is a pretty good program 2 b sure)

addardenderhamm <... I think we had one of those bushes growing in our garden when I was a nipper.

I am not sure if I re-register if it will confuse the system, as obviously I had registered before, so then there would be 2 versions of me.

Will take your suggestion and start with full package,, good idea ... .thx

I'm not sure if it's indicative of me finding religion or accumulating years just taking me closer to my maker  ;D :) :( :-\

No worries. It can deal with such nasties... You wouldn't believe how many rocket scientists re-register all the time... :P

And don't be harsh on Walker, he's our well-kept baby. ;D

Just a quick note to thank you guys for the help, and entertainment.
Oh and the fashion parade as well :)

I am saying nothing incriminating about rocket scientists and reregistering to be sure to be sure, but heck I now have a working virus prog again, and a mighty fine one at that!!

As to how I got there, well... LOL just being my ever cautious self :)
And it worked, so no harm done. Maybe rocket science is a possibilty lol. (NOT)

Now I just have to set the thing off to check 140 gigs of hd (groans inwardly)

I hope things work out with the 22 year old cocktail waitress, but if not give her my email address  ;D


What made me laugh today.

There I was congratulating myself for my forethought, financial wisdom, eco friendliness etc etc.
Why .
Cos after years, today I at last bit the bullet and installed an expensive, low energy, highly cost effective light bulb, in my computer room. Cost... about 10 times more than the usual for a bulb. Billed as capable of operating for ten years

3 seconds later it blew up ROFL

Oh well back to the cheap ones I guess ???

Yours
