Well a coincidence perhaps, maybe not, but a repair is certainly worth a try. However this may be clutching at straws as I think 'wlfpck' as reinstalled a few times and that too would effectively done a repair, but it can't hurt.

yep.  each time the avast was uninstalled through add/remove.  Then the utility was ran to remove all traces of it.

then downloaded new file.  And installed.


now heres some new info.

I just got some security updates for windows today.  After the updates were installed, the laptop restarted.  But once it booted up the msg to restart never came.  Now i'm afraid to restart my laptop.  lol

Computers  ::) don't you just love them, in theory nothing should have changed to effect this particular issue ???

Anyway I'm glad that it is resolved (hopefully), but your going to have to restart sometime (next windows update, etc.). I know some people leave their desktop systems on 24/7 but I haven't heard of many laptop users doing the same.

Maybe sooner is better than later in this case.  If there's going to be a problem it would be best to discover it while this thread and everyone's thoughts are still fresh.  Would you really want to start this again from step 1?
