HELP!! avast! 4.1 goes very slow then stops
« on: March 01, 2004, 11:01:49 PM »
i use Me ,OS. I use Avast! 4.1 and i run it at any setting and its goes really slow and frezzes the whole pc and end uo restarting. Most times its slow so i turn it off it took 1hour to scan 60,000 files half way, im not to sure what to do. It says i have a trogen and then frezzes just after. If you can help that would be great.  :)

Can you boot in safe mode (F8)?
Can you run avast! from there?

If not, can you run an on-line scanning?
When you were 'clean' you can see if the freeze system is due to Windows Restore...

What trojan are you talking about?
What do you mean by 'the system freeze' after the detection of the trojan?

if the trojan is active in memory you may have to kill it in the process manager first.

I'm using them now but they don't find anything

Can you try avast! Virus Cleaner Tool and after that a full scanning of avast! (Thorough scan and 'Scan archive files')?

avast! Virus Cleaner detects only the most common viruses and worms. The fact that it didn't find any virus does not mean much.

What did you do with the files where Trojan-gen was detected? Deleted them?

Well, you should try the same settings as you did originally - to see if the problem has gone.
