 :'(I tried everything listed here and all I could think of. And that’s a lot really; I literally spent a whole day trying to get it work on that account, yet nothing. So ill be just waiting for an update aimed to fix this.

P.S. I had Norton on my pc from the start, after it asked me to pay I picked Avast instead, when this problem appeared I used the Norton uninstall utility, since a couple of years ago I uninstalled Norton threw add/remove programs.

A former satisfied Avast user I am, used the program for about 4 years and now this…

*sigh*

I'm quite sure the order of the uninstallation must be: 1st, Control Panel then 2nd, the tool and not the opposite.

which OS are we talking about?

If XP perhaps you got SP3 RC installed? - then look no further. I had the same issue on a XP3 box and all was fine again after a clean XP installation.
