PC reboots but Grimefighter does not run
« on: April 04, 2015, 02:51:56 AM »
Just installed Grimefighter on my Sony Vaio S. I also have it on a Sony Vaio Pro ... where it worked fine the last time I used it.

However when Avast reboots to run Grimefighter the laptop just reboots back into Windows.

I have checked the licencing activation and that seems to be fine.

So how do I get it to run ?

Can you please check c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\GrimeFighter.log if there are some errors about GrimeFighter boot setup? Or send this file to Avast support.

Thank you. I assume you have EFI system. Unfortunatelly I don't see anything wrong in the log, it should be set up right. One more thing you can try is to delete c:\Jumpshot directory and try to scan for performace issues again. It will download image when necessary, extract and copy boot files to EFI partition. If this doesn't help please post here log for these actions.

Yep it is an EFI system.

I could not get any action from Avast/Grime fighter, so I went into add/remove/change Avast and removed the Grimefighter module, so I could install it again. Avast did an update just after that.

The end result is that I can now no longer find any way to see, use or install Grime fighter, so I presume Avast has decided it is not compatible with my system ?

So did I purchase a licence that I cannot use on this machine ?

You can't install GrimeFighter module again or it's just not visible in Avast UI? Can you take a look into GrimeFighter.log again and search for last line containing "HW check sent with id" and post it here? Thank you.

Hi James,

You might also look under Tools, and then Scan for Performance Issues.  It should start running GrimeFighter.

There is no option under tools to scan for performance issues any more.

There is no Grimefighter log file any more.

Seems Grimefighter has gone dark as far as my system is concerned.

 :(

I am having the same problem. I paid for and installed Grimefighter yesterday. It identifies the issues and says they will be fixed on next reboot but more than 24 hours later...nothing. It still lists the the issues and asks me to Optimize my PC.

I cant get it working either, bought it yesterday, tried all recomendations. My license is valid.
It reboots back to windows, and nothing happens.
This calls for a refund please.

I've recently purchased Grime Fighter and I'm having similar results, with the Process Failure issues.
I've submitted a ticket and hoping for a refund. Very disappointed Avast! :C
