Critical help for y'all!!!
« on: June 29, 2004, 11:23:23 AM »
Ever tried or perhaps even now is experiencing that Avast! has deleted critical for your systems, so windows won't open anything. ??? ??? :'( :-\
One of my fav, trouble-shooting sites has a solution to this: 8) :D :o


- this should help, it did with me. (Remember the RIGHT CLICK and choose INSTALL)

Great for those, who, like me, are in between comp-wiz and it-challenged ;D :D ;D 8)

ps don't you just hate people who use smileys way to frequent (fyi; just being exstatic over fixing a prob.)

Another solution to this problem:
just run the CLEANER from avast hompage

Yeah, it may help in some situations.
- But you can't use a program, when Avast! screws up your system (read as; registry database)
Since Cleaner is an .exe file it won't be able to be opened, as your system reports 'file not found' each time you try and open programs/.exe files.

I'm gonna try it anyway now, since my system is feeling better after some to cure the else so great Avast tendencies to not-repair viruses (wrm.) and instead leaves you to deleting them - thus creating the problem.

It usually helps to change the program's name extension. Like to .COM, .BAT, .CMD or .PIF.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
