Hi,

Can anyone help me please?

I have checked the forum, but i can't find an answer to why i have this error (Error 10049) coming up every time my computer starts up.

My operating system is XP Home SP2 (with all the latest updates)
Avast version is - 4.7 Home Edition - Oct2006 (4.7.892)
Extreme Toolkit version - 1.9.4.0
VPS Database - Date - 29/09/2006 - File Version - 0639-4
Internet Mail version - 4.7.892

I use Outlook Express for my mail program.

Other security programs on my computer.

Ad-Aware SE Personal - (latest updates installed)
a - squared Free - (latest updates installed)
Spyware Blaster  - (latest updates installed)
Spybot  - (latest updates installed)
Pop-Up Stopper Free Edition

All Avast features set to Automatic in Services.
And currently when i checked, Internet Mail - Resident Protection has been running for 32.45

Many thanks in advance.

I don't know if this is a windows or avast error, can you give the full text of the error ?
There is no 10049 error in the List of avast! Error Codes.

If it is a windows error 10049 = 'The requested address is not valid in its context. ' Not a very helpful description as it could relate to anything (avast or otherwise) and without more information we would be guessing.

Is there anything in the windows event viewer ?

Allied with the images it could be that there is some other application that is also monitoring email, I've seen something like this before in the forums and a search for error 10049 returns some hits.

This one seems relevant http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=23775.msg196593#msg196593.
Check and ensure that Comodo allows access to ashMaiSv.exe, the avast email scanner, which also scans NNTP news.

Hi,

I found this on the Comodo website forum:

http://forums.comodo.com/index.php/topic,1553.0.html

I tried the 9th message down in that posts recommendations.
That is to delete all of the Avast settings in Comodo, and then re-allow them from the pop up's.
I then did a restart, and i allowed Avast in Comodo, and the Error 10049 screens have stopped.
But i am not sure if Avast is checking my e-mail's, as i don't know how to test it?

Thanks.

Gary

johkaz,

if avast is scanning your emails you will see in the Internet Mail provider the subject line of the last mail scanned and the count of scanned messages increasing as you receive your email.
