CANT INSTALL ANY VERSIONS OF AVAST PRODUCTS . PLEASE HELP :(
« on: September 25, 2015, 12:27:03 AM »
My laptop is Dell 7348 i7 5500u 500gb Signature Version so their is no bloatware with it and enough specs to run the latest Avast
After a cancellation while installing avast Internet Security on Windows 10 RTM Pro build 10240, now I can't reinstall any of Avast products

- Reinstalled a clean Windows 10 Pro (old ISO). 10240, downloaded a new W10P ISO and reinstalled 5 more times.
- Open the files with admin privilege/ placed them on desktop screen/ logged in with admin account/ tested for hd bad sectors, blah...
- I tried with Avast Free/Pro/ Internet Sec/ Premier (offline installers)
- Scanned system with Anti-spyware apps.....
- Removed everything except Windows
- Removed old installations with Avast clear tool even when I didn't install anything on it after clean Windows installation
- Reinstalled and deleted the recovery partition, all partitions /  re-create all partitions ..... ........... Tired  :(
and the problem persists :
      :( The installer is unable to initialize early Avast self-defense with error 0x00000241! Aborting ! :(

-----------------
Then I try to install Avast with online installers (Free/Pro/IS/Pre).
the installations went fine, then
                       :( Welcome to Avast : Red screen saying background service: kinda not running,  :(
Clicked on the button next to it to start but still no luck.

I'm not the fan of other antivirus apps, don't suggest me one another
Please tell me what the heck is going on with it, do i need to return the computer or change its hard drive  or what should i do ?
my work requires surfing the internet hours a day, it's quite easy to be infected by viruses.
Thank you !

Thank you so much for replying but now I can't even open up Avast installer, Online installers now can not be run, I clicked on them and they just stay where they are, no sign of loading the files to ram or initialize its job,
Please, is there anything else I can do with it ?

Hi! Joe.Did repair worked? if not try those:1. Download Avast from http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.

@Joe.Hello !
Please run the scans in this topic so I can get a better look at your system.  FRST (2 logs from this scanner) and Malwarebytes Antimalware would be good (if you can). 

Directions are detailed here: Logs to assist in cleaning malware
Win7 x32 Ult. SP1, Brain 2.0 / Win10 x64, Brain2.5
My help is always free but if you would like to help encourage me or show your thanks -----> DONATE

The point is to attach the logs those programs produce, then a fix can be created to avoid a reinstall

Like wise facing similar issue here.

I've even contacting HQ on this but there were no solid solutions.

For my case it only happened on ASUS and Acer notebooks with Windows 10 SL installed.

It will never be able to install avast regardless of how many pre-bundled software removed.

It will immediately prompt an error message "0x00000241" and will never be able to complete the installation.

The only way to get the installer runner is booting in safe mode while installing the program but that's not the solution.

Once installed, reboot the pc and the windows will immediately crash.

I tried to attach several attachments here but failed so until anyone request for it i will personally send them over.
