www.avast.com closes browser
« on: April 29, 2004, 01:17:07 PM »
Anytime I enter www.avast.com in my browser address field and hit enter, my browser closes.  This occurs in both IE 6.0 and Netscape 7.1.  I’m running a Dell Dimension with Windows XP.

Hi,

- have you emptied T.I.F. = IE-Cache, incl. OFFLINE files and TEMP-folders ?
- other websites work normally ?
- have you run a complete AV-Scan ? with avast or other Scanners, e.g. Onlinescanners from Trend (see below) and www.ravantivirus.com

- please post the contents of your Host(s)-file(s) to see if their is some misguided redirection (Search your HD with WindowsExplorer)

- spybot, ad-aware and cwshredder might also help
if you still can't remove it, you could post a logfile of Hijackthis here

see www.lurkhere.com ->nicefiles and www.lavasoft.de
