AVAST server edition clashing with AVAST home edition
« on: November 25, 2009, 08:46:35 PM »
Hi,

I have been using Avast home edition free in my client machine where I access my HP server console, then I installed AVAST for server edition for my HP Smart Home Server ex490 from my console ADDS-in  and it crashed the server,  server was freezed.

I tried installing it again and I got error message saying that it couldn't find the following path C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4  where I had installed AVAST home edition.  I think they were clashing

I  had to shut down server and uninstall my AVAST Home edition.


AVAST Home edition is uninstalled, then I open my server console and I have an AVAST icon on my task bar but AVAST is not installed and it doesn't show up in the ADDS-in installed in my server

How can I remove this AVAST icon from my server console task bar?

Any tool to remove this icon from server task bar

Please help

search is your best friend, so is google or bing.....

this kinda problems have been answered a lot of times already....

but ok, run this tool: http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-uninstall-utility.html

oh and learn:  one version of an AV is not the other, never try to installed 2 pro active antivirus packages at the same time, it will ... clash..

so run the tool and install the correct version

Yes I have this tool, I used it before.

I didn't know they were both integrating, home and server edition

Just after I uninstalled my AVAST home and reinstalled it back now I got the serve edition to work as well in the server console and it has more features than the basic free home edition.

I have seen that even though they are integrated I need to get the license key for server version, it doesn't let me do the updates in the server console, is that meant to be like that for the trial?  I just installed it yesterday

When I click on Start main AVAST console under AVAST antivirus in my console task bar it tells me that I'm using an old VPS file (virus database)
Then I click on AVS update button and I get an error message saying

THE LICENSE KEY FOR THIS PRODUCT IS TEMPORARY DISABLED

Will this error message go away if I buy the license key and will I be able to update my virus definition?

Or this is a bug that I can't update the virus definition with a trial version?

Or will I go for Mcafee?

What's best for my HP smart home server ex 490?  Just waiting to take a decision :)

Thanks

Regards
