Guys, there's a couple of threads about this already. Please don't start your own.

Here's what you need to know: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=20854.msg174626#msg174626


Thanks

I have returned to AVG until I get an answer to all this.

Hi. Yes I do use XPHome. After clicking on 'properties' on the Avast folder' I see no sign of 'proprietary' or 'security' link :(

There is no Security Tab in the folder Properties unless your Drive/Partition is in NTFS format so I don't know how the folder is locked if you have FAT32 as your format method.  If your drive/partition is in NTFS format you should see a Security Tab along with the 3 in the image (I still use FAT32).

Not fully true. There's no security tab even on NTFS if "Simple File Sharing" is enabled in WinXP. (So, the solution is to turn Simple File Sharing off - the tab reappears.)

Hi  :)

I don't mean to but in, I don't think XP Home allows you to disable Simple File Sharing. I think you can in safe mode.
