OK. Please try the following:
1. Open avast! installation folder in Explorer (or any other file manager you use) and rename the file ashUInt.dll to something else (e.g. ashUInt.dl_)
2. Download this file:
http://public.avast.com/~glucksmann/ashUInt.dll
and put it into avast! installation folder, instead of the original one.

Now, try to start avast! (splash) again... does it help?

Thanks igor
yes it has fixed the problem it is working fine.

I ended up rebooting after i was disconnected.
Strange after rebooting  Avast asked to reboot .

Maybe this will be one of and i will see if it does it again.

Cheers

It probably will [do again].
avast! setup noticed an unauthorized change of the library and put the original one back (and asked for a reboot); I just wanted to know if it makes any difference.

I'll put a better file online in a while ;)

So, here is the file:
http://public.avast.com/~glucksmann/ashUInt.zip

So, similarly to the previous case - rename the original ashUInt.dll file in avast! installation folder (so that you can replace it), and extract the content of this ZIP archive into avast! folder (there are 2 files inside). The installer should keep this file until a new version of avast! is released.

I have now placed both the files in Avast Folder, Scan is working okay ETC Splash , Memory Scan.

You have been very patient with me and i sincerely thank you for your assistance.


This is why Avast Forums is the best forum out there.

We should thank you for your help - it helped us to find the problem.

It was a "strange" piece of code that wasn't really correct... what is even more strange, however, is that you (and possibly a very few others) were the only ones having the problems. The code hasn't changed for years, and it works for millions of users correctly. I have no idea what's so special about your computer ;)

Hi
 When i booted up the computer today
This is the first reboot since i installed the 2 files from the zip folder.

For some reason Avast has gone back to how it was before.
If i click right click the avast ball and then click Start Avast Anti virus hour glass appears and i have to end task in Task manager.

I reloaded the files in the zip folder and they said did i want to update etc as they were already there, i said yes to both one changed Okay the other one could not be changed as it said file in use or it is a hidden file.

http://public.avast.com/~Gilkson/Ashanti.zip

I hope i haven't made it worse by attempting to reinstal these 2 files.


Here Are the ashUInt files in my Avast Instalation Folder
ashUInt
ashUInt.dl
ashUint.dll
ashUInt.dll sum
Cheers

I couldn't find (download) this file...

No, don't worry. You can repair your avast installation any time.

Here Are the ashUInt files in my Avast Instalation Folder
ashUInt
ashUInt.dl
ashUint.dll
ashUInt.dll sum
The first two files are, for me, strange.
But, anyway, wait for Igor's instructions.

The Igor's zip file does only have the last two files, not the two first ones that you're listing and I think they could be deleted  ::)

Strange... are you saying that setup put back the original versions anyway?
Please try again...
- delete all the versions of ashUInt you can from your installation folder (you won't be able to delete the currently loaded one; the additional file that normally are not there are leftovers from the "renaming" operation - they can safely be deleted).
- start avast! update manually (it won't update if you have already the latest version installed, but it will check the files and possibly do the replacement)
- if asked for reboot, reboot
- now, do what I wrote previously (rename ashUInt.dll, and extract the ZIP file there instead)
- now, invoke another manual update... does avast! ask you for restart, or not?

It is possible that I didn't sign the file correctly, but I think I did...

I have just down as requested.
Done manual program  update,... did not ask for reboot.
Renamed ashUInt.dll
Placed the contents of the zip file in Avast Folder
Invoked another manual  program update,.. Did not ask for a restart.

Everything is working fine now.

Cheers

You can take a lot of credit yourself for the work you did in presenting the information to enable the fix, which not only helped you may also help others in the future when this is applied in a future program update.
