Hi again. OK, I downloaded RegSupreme, and it's only a trial version, but I couldn't find any RegCleaner so I assume that's what was being mentioned. It found a couple AVG files and got rid of them, and when I checked my services being run, AVG is no longer one of them. But Avast still isn't running like it should, I have no resident protection, and the virus vault has the same exact error. I truly appreciate everyone who's been helping me, please continue, because I have no idea what else could be causing the problem.
No, I suppose we were not talking about RegSupreme (I do not know anything about it...). Anyway, there are some links you can try:RegClean
for Windows 98 (but works on XP)BeClean
Specially the Registry Cleaning feature
But the best, you can make a download for try, is PowerTools
. Very powerful registry power tools, with lots of extra options]very powerfull registry power tools, with lots of extra options. Unfortunately, it's a shareware.
I do not have the file you mentioned: c:\windows\system32\mssmgrie.exe
I tryed a Google and Microsoft search and nothing...
I strongly suggest you this:
1. Download avast! 4.1.289
2. Desinstall your actual version of avast (Control Panel).
4. Run PowerTools and choose Registry cleaning. You can choose the option of a backup of the removed itens.
5. Use Avast Uninstall
for complete desinstallation.
7. Install the downloaded 4.1.289 version.
Anyway, if you need another licence key, the registration form can be found here
