Also remember,  "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
That may not be from Einstein  but it's good advice.

Bob

A while back i used to always go by "if there is an update/fix, then do it" but also a bit back i used an update from windows update drivers and it stoped my inet connection, and a little bit after that i attempted to update my router and compleatly messed it up, i had to get a new one in the end, so i am going by that useful advice now.

Thanks all for the help

There are some things you better never update, unless there is no other option to fix a problem. Amongst them are bios and firmware.

If there is no problem. Leave them as they are.

Even a serial Mouse that must be connected otherwise this isn't detected and therefore, neither are my harddrives.

Yeah,well in fact everything was ok(thats why i found this bug so late) except the fact that variables to control enabling,disabling and auto-restarting were too long to operate correctly.
I just short them up and now its working. I never thought this could be the limit hehe

Yup, strange things happen :D
My HJT analyzer works perfect when I use the source code, but after compiling it has troubles with lines containing a "," (comma). It sees them as a carriage return. Still looking for a better compiler but sofar no luck. (Looking at powerbasic, but that one is 200 usd)

I don't know who came up with the Avast! External Control & wrote this piece of work, but i'm in the group that admires speed & rapid response by any application or program.

I'm totally amazed at this special technology and the lightning quik reflex i've witnessed so far with this.

Thanks Alwil. Avast! This is by far on of the more clever ideas to grace the security apps stage probably ever!

I must also add, although i have been in the minority in my choice of this Spectacular AV, i and many others like me have not been disappointed and in fact very impressed!

Avast! continues to root out and find potentially threatening files that others simply miss or fail to include into their database period.

No need to make open comparisons, this is been no brainer no matter who or why others may disagree.

I,ve done some serious study into the potential dangers that maliciously released files can do and their elusiveness to detections, and out of them all Avast! is overwhelming the #1 safety product that always comes to the rescue and has proven itself many times over again.

I can't thank the developers more but i will.  :)

The External Control componant is just another exclaimation point to this very modern high technology security program.
