Use the license file, not the activation code.

Hi,

A clean re-install should solve this problem. Use http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe to uninstall Avast and then download and install the latest build from http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe


PD: Did you ever install Kaspersky?

Hi,

Could you please send us a support package http://utils.support.tools.avast.com/tools/support/utils/avastsupport.exe
Please post the ID here to locate it.

If I understand correctly, you had Nod32, reinstalled Windows and then installed Avast? There should be no Nod32 files remaining, right?

You need to use the uninstall tool from E-Set and not just remove through control panel.
If you haven't used it:
- Remove E-Set and avast through control panel
- Reboot
- Run the uninstall tools for both
- Reboot
- Install avast

As Eddy has said, run the removal tools for Avast and Eset before attempting to re-install Avast.
