Did you boot after installing?
Are you using windows 98 or XP?
Can you manually run Mail Protection Wizard (Start Menu ... avast antivirus ... MPW)?

yes I booted
I am using win 98
I did manually run the Mail Protection Wizard

When I open outlook express it  asks me to logon with my password over and over again.

Gerry - I remember reading a post in here where someone else had a problem with the re-occuring "login with password" problem. So, the answer is in the forum somewhere. Perhaps a better search would find it?

it asks me to logon with my password over and over again.

Try some procedures:
1. Configure the way you connect to Internet (dial-up or DSL)
    avast settings > Connections (Basic) and (Advanced)
2. See the Internet Settings for connections (generally: Tools > Options > Connections): do not dial, dial the standard connection, by LAN, etc.
3. Post here your email account settings (do not post your password and use 'generic' usernames). We can guide you...  8)

Let me re-fraze that.  Where is your virus protection for your e-mail if you read it on the net?
