moses,

Apparently Avast detects the 2 programs and acts upon them as potentially dangerous to your system.
The Standard Shield Extension Set in the Blocker includes programs of the .exe ending.

You can try to do the following:
1.  Set the Standard Shield to Normal from High
2.  You can remove the .exe file extension by opening the OnAccess Protection panel.  Then go to the Standard Shield module screen/Customize/Blocker/Show.....
Locate and click on .exe and then Remove.

See if that works for you.

OK, let's talk about PhotoPlus55 installation now. When exactly does it "disappear"? When the download manager is started (and starts to download the real installator), or when the real (7Megs) installer is started?

If you open the file config.nt located in your windows\system32 directory and comment the line device=<avast>\aswmonds.sys (by putting REM before the line) - does it help?

I'm afraid you shouldn't keep it this way.
By commenting the line, the resident protection for DOS programs was completely disabled.

Start regedit, please, and navigate to the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers
What is the value of VDD?

OK, try to delete the multiple avast values (keep only one aswMonVd.dll item). Does it help (when you uncomment the line in config.nt again).

As I understand, gpib-vdd.dll is some kind of National Instruments driver... could be?

Moses, you had a similar problem than I in the past but Igor aswered you faster than I could go back here. The driver were blocking the correct installation (and registration) of the avast driver. You won't be able to use DOS under XP at that condition and installation capability.

Be sure the comment into the config.nt file was removed.
This is the same thing of uninstalling Norton before installing avast!  :-*

Maybe it was not the fault of gpib-vdd.dll itself this time... I guess there shouldn't have been multiple occurrences of avast! driver.
