Howdy folks. Years ago I used Avast for protecting myself at home, but I've moved since then and am in school. School's laptop is running Vista and ever since about a week ago the 'Symantec Anti Virus' Auto-Protect would no longer switch on. I could attempt to start it manually, but after clicking the button, nothing.
So, I went to the well, and luckily here you are. I downloaded Avast last night and it worked like a charm.
Until I restarted this morning and the pc would not boot. I had to go to a "previous good version" and now both Symantec and Avast will not turn on. When I attempt to run a scan (quick or full) an error message occurs telling me that the scan can not be run due to missing endpoints from the endpoint mapper. When I attempt to use something within the avast control window nearly every option tells me unable to start XXXX shield isnt running "shield unreachable".
Help!
Something is keeping my system from trying to protect itself. Like a bad conscience telling my good conscience not to worry about having another drink. :)
Here is my hijack this log if it helps!

Hi go here and download the norton removal tool to clear the remnants  http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Having done that

To ensure that I get all the information this log will need to be attached (instructions at the end) if it is to large to attach then upload to Mediafire and post the sharing link.

Download OTS  to your Desktop
  • Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • Double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
  • Check the box that says Scan All Users
  • Under Additional Scans check the following:
    • Reg - Shell Spawning
    • File - Lop Check
    • File - Purity Scan
    • Evnt - EvtViewer (last 10)
    • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
    netsvcs
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll
    sceclt.dll
    ntelogon.dll
    logevent.dll
    iaStor.sys
    nvstor.sys
    atapi.sys
    IdeChnDr.sys
    viasraid.sys
    AGP440.sys
    vaxscsi.sys
    nvatabus.sys
    viamraid.sys
    nvata.sys
    nvgts.sys
    iastorv.sys
    ViPrt.sys
    eNetHook.dll
    ahcix86.sys
    KR10N.sys
    nvstor32.sys
    ahcix86s.sys
    nvrd32.sys
    symmpi.sys
    adp3132.sys

    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav


    • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
    • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
    • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
    • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
    Please attach the log in your next post.

    To attach a file, do the following:
    • Click Additional Options
    • Under the reply panel is the Attachments Panel
    • Browse for the attachment file you want to upload and then click it

    Thank you Logos and essexboy!

    essex: I am unable to remove Norton due to permissions. Should I run the following step regardless and report my findings?

    OK could you re-run the Norton removal tool by right clicking and selecting run as administrator.  Currently Norton is running twice as many services/drivers as Avast !  You will need to repair Avast after this - -do you know how to do that ?

    If that fails then run the following to kill the services and drivers

    Start OTS. Copy/Paste the information in the quotebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.

    The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. Click the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix. Post that information back here along with a new OTS log.

    I will review the information when it comes back in.

    Also let me know of any problems you encountered performing the steps above or any continuing problems you are still having with the computer.

    Well, it hangs on "YY -> lucoms~1.exe -> C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuComServer_3_2.EXE"

    After a reboot, the following is displayed on a notepad document:

    Files\Folders moved on Reboot...
    C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\VPTray.exe moved successfully.
    File move failed. C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\SavRoam.exe scheduled to be moved on reboot.
    File\Folder C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\Rtvscan.exe not found!
    File\Folder C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\DefWatch.exe not found!
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe moved successfully.
    File\Folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccSvcHst.exe not found!
    File move failed. C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuComServer_3_2.EXE scheduled to be moved on reboot.

    Registry entries deleted on Reboot...


    LuComServer is obviously possessed by evil!!!! :D

    Good morning.  I am having the same problem: No shields, with no response when I click on the FIX NOW button, press the File System Shield which gives me the error "Unable to start the File System Shield.  Shield Unreachable.", nor with pressing the start scan choices, other than "Unable to start scan.  There are no endpoints available from the endpoint mapper." My suspicion is that there is some conflict between Avast and the Windows Internet Explorer 8 KB976662 update that ran early this morning since my Avast was working perfectly last night.

    I'm really not computer savvy at all.  I read the whole of this thread, and while relieved that I'm not the only one facing this, fear I wont be able to fix this without a little hand-holding.  

    If I go to the Add/Remove Programs and just remove the update in question, will I just compound the problem?

    After reading other similiar posts..would it be less complicated if I uninstall Avast and re-download/install and see if problem persists?

    That would be the best initial start do a clean install

    darkknight9  could you run another OTS scan please - but this time press the quick scan button

    Lets see if we can sneak up on it this time - most of it has gone now

    Once done can you let me know what problems you are still experiencing

    Start OTS. Copy/Paste the information in the quotebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.

    Code: [Select]
    [Unregister Dlls]
    [Processes - Safe List]
    YY -> lucoms~1.exe -> C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuComServer_3_2.EXE
    [Win32 Services - Safe List]
    YY -> (SavRoam) SavRoam [Auto | Running] -> C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\SavRoam.exe
    YY -> (LiveUpdate) LiveUpdate [Auto | Running] -> C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuComServer_3_2.EXE
    [Registry - Safe List]
    < Run [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    YY -> "ccApp" -> C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe ["C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe"]
    YY -> "vptray" -> C:\PROGRA~1\SYMANT~1\VPTray.exe [C:\PROGRA~1\SYMANT~1\VPTray.exe]
    < Downloaded Program Files > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Code Store Database\Distribution Units\

    YN -> {644E432F-49D3-41A1-8DD5-E099162EEEC5} [HKLM] -> http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/SharedContent/common/bin/cabsa.cab [Symantec RuFSI Utility Class]

    [Custom Items]
    :files
    C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus
    C:\Program Files\Symantec
    :end
