Help avast won't start On-Access protection
« on: June 09, 2006, 02:26:47 AM »
I need help. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall it several times and avast won't activate the On-Access protection. I had to reinstall first off because I had to format my hard drive. Does anyone know what I need to do to get the On-Access protection to work? Oh and btw I'm using the home version.

Do you have any other security program? An antivirus?
Do you mean a clean install (just after the format) failed?

What happens if...
1. Uninstall avast from Control Panel first.
2. Boot
3. Use Avast Uninstall for complete uninstallation (read
4. Boot
5. Install again by this command on the folder you've donwload and save the install file: setupeng.exe /forceinstall
    Where setupeng.exe is the name of the executable
