Any time you install cracked program, key generators, etc you are also most likely installing an infection
or malicious software on your computer.
Also, installing more than one resident AV on your computer is begging for problems as you found out.
Come clean, start fresh, stay legal and then you can expect some help if you need it. (You probably will not have any problems any more once your clean and legal.)

have any proof of that claim?....
i don't have more than 1 av running.....
i've fully lost computers in the past both while i was 'clean and legal' and not , as such labels bare no relevance to the matters at hand , it's just hogwash.....
and funnily enough you should say that , as the last time i got any real help for computer problems that actually worked was when i had asked some streamers i didn't know on a streaming site who were good at hacking and such for fixing problems that had happened to me that have never happened ever to anyone in the existence of computers as far as we were all concerned , the one guy had everything fixed overnight using coombfix.....
yet here i am for a week now on this program's site trying to get help with fixing how this program screwed me over, and all im getting for responses are the joys of bowing down to your corporate overlords......

Wrong, you screwed yourself by using illegal software.

Since you are reluctant to listen and refuse to use only legal software, helping you only would mean a waste of time.
We fix it and within a week you are in trouble again and the whole thing will start over again.

A clean installation of Windows and the legal software you want to use is not taking 3 days.
Two hours at the most, including a large coffee break.

It would appear that you @iamll3 are a novice, perhaps you should run a scan with Malwarebytes or something... www.malwarebytes.org and you never specified if you ran a full scan or quick scan, nor the settings with which you scanned. Be more specific please and sometimes things are missed by avast, it is rare, but is usually newer adware. Never use just one tool. Always be sure. Run a Full scan with avast and PUP's checked first. I set the heuristics to High the first time.

Maybe you need to re-read this thread. Help for those that use Illegal Software isn't offered in this forum.

all i need is 1 example....

windows defender? that's not even an av program.....
i only have 1 installed and running copy of avast , idk what all those repeats you're seeing are....

i never said you worked for avast....

how so?....

where have i been reluctant to listen? and where have i ever said i refuse to use legal software? the only waste of time i see here are all these baseless claims.....

first there's data location then backup - 7+hours
then there's formatting - 1+ hour
then there's the os instal - 2+ hours
then there's os updates - 6+ hours
then there's data transfer - 6+hours
then there's os fixes cause windows is crap - 4+ hours
then there's program installation - 6+ hours
3 days is a minimum unless one does all that without getting any sleep , im not a robot however.....

I set the heuristics to High the first time.
i have had the full version of malwarebytes for almost a year now , i did encounter some problems with it about half a year ago where the right click option to scan something with it isn't there (a problem i still have) and it got stuck 18 minutes into a scan every time i tried to scan for rootkits , among some other performance issues , the forum there was also unable to help with anything , a couple weeks ago malware did some kind of startup blocking scan though , and after that i tried a regular scan with rootkit scanning enabled and it completed the scan so that was nice , didn't fix any of these problems though.....

of course im running full scans here....
the settings are to scan EVERYTHING , im trying to find out the causes of these problems , no perimeters of scanning with anything are yielding useful results though , though malwarebytes is good at getting rid of those pups.......

heuristics? don't know what that is.....

cute , not only not helping with any of the problems caused by this program , but also actively trying to discourage others from providing their own help , nowhere in this thread is such a thing even stated.....

There is no need to quote our post.
We know what we posted and we can read back if/when needed.

first there's data location then backup - 7+hours
Not needed, you already should have a backup
Quote
then there's formatting - 1+ hour
5 minutes tops
Quote
then there's the os instal - 2+ hours
Not even one hour on a 486 PII
Quote
then there's os updates - 6+ hours
Use a cd/dvd with everything slipstreamed.
Quote
then there's data transfer - 6+hours
Only if you have several TB of data
Quote
then there's os fixes cause windows is crap - 4+ hours
You are counting things double. That is already done withe the os updates.
Quote
then there's program installation - 6+ hours
So you have several 100's of applications installed? Get real.
Quote

There is the unattended install option. Sleep and let the system handle everything.

Last but not least.
You can whine all you want, but we will not help you.

ok , but then how do you know who im saying what to without any reply indication?.....

i do have a backup , of most of my stuff , not all of it though , and not very recent either......

we're talking about formatting a terabyte hard drive , not a 2 gig sd card , you're lucky if it will format in under 2 hours.....

for windows 98 maybe , im running windows 7 , the disc takes about half an hour just to prepare the files for installation.....

slipstreamed? what's that?....

ok what kind of monster computer are you running where you can transfer a terabyte of data in an hour i'd like one please.....

lol no the os updates don't fix shit except for getting drivers so the computer can actually register any of the hardware you have plugged in to it , im talking about layout fixes useful codec installs and actually being able to use more than 2.1 speakers on this os.....

no , i just have programs that take more than 5 seconds to instal , you get real or give me your apparently really good com.....

you do realize that since these steps need to be preformed manually and you need to be present to authorize the different aspects of them just going to sleep and letting the computer do everything isn't an option?....

also sleeping is a luxury i haven't been able to experiences for a couple months now , but that's another issue entirely....


yes i know you already said you weren't going to help anyone who doesn't have any money , also i'll be getting rid of this program now thanks for only causing me more troubles once again avast........

That is your own fault. Nothing we can do about it.

Bull. 5 minutes tops.

A over 10 year old "monster".

Again bull. Updates are also including security updates/fixes.

No, you don't have to be present. That is what a unattended installation is for.

oh right don't need to quote , almost did it again....

again , my own fault for not having any money....

have you formatted a 1tb hdd before? that's how long it takes , i've done it several times , and doing a quick search yields similar times for others asking the same question.....

yeah i think that's about how old my com is at this point too lol....

oh yeah , security , so secure it couldn't prevent serious functional breakdown of the os.....

yeah k great after i spend an hour at the com to get it to initiate the instal of the os , i can go sleep for an hour or 2 till it's done , then there's everything else that needs to be done.....

">the version that has inexplicably locked me out of my computer many times in the past and eradicated many of my programs and files while not fixing any problems
yeah no.....
what's more , the full version of this program still didn't fix anything , and you're looking at the status of my com through a freeware program , and would then go on to suggest fixes that would not include using this program in any way , making it completely useless and the very notion of paying to use this program a scam , i prefer to have tried a program to see if it works before paying for it than to have spent money i don't have on it only to have it cause more problems and leave me wanting my money back......."

and the topic is going nowhere because people keep posting saying it's going nowhere instead of posting with any kind of help......
