What to do about FP problem while waiting for Alwil
« on: December 03, 2009, 05:23:15 AM »
This is almost certainly a corrupted database problem with 091203-0.  Turning off all or part (standard shield, file shield) of avast! will get you operational, but remember it will also disable much of the antivirus capability.  You might also think about installing something like the free  version of Prevx if you do this, since it is very small and non-intrusive.  Others have installed Microsoft Security Essentials, which should actually work pretty well alongside Avast!
Windows 7 x64HP-SP1-No UAC, Opera 11.51, Avast! Internet Security 6.0.128, Webroot SecureAnywhere latest beta, Windows FW off, MVPS HOSTS, SAS/MBAM offline, Macrium Reflect just in case ;)
