The application avast! quit unexpectedly
« on: February 10, 2008, 08:11:44 PM »
I run the latest version of leopard, and avast keeps quitting and relaunching automatically.
I can't access system preferences, spotlight etc and there are no more desktop icons on my desktop...
When clicking the "report" button I get this message:
