Oh im not giving up......Love avast too much and outpost for that....

Now im messign around with Process Gaurd.  I got the entoire comp locked up,   yet no matter how I give all avast exe's full permission in the rights, it wont download . Outpost and all else works, yet this is driving me nuts. Globally all is prevented to download anythign without permission . In the list, adding the main avast exe, and giving it right and to allow driver updates etc, doesn not sem to be working. I just went thru and added all the exe files in the avast folder, gave them all permission, yet still it says when i initiate a download, i dotn have anough access to do this.  Damn, perhaps there is a .dll  that needs permission or something. Anyone got any ideas????


sorry for typos, ive been up like 24 plus now gettign things back to normal.  And making sure to the best I can that this never happens again.....

fyi- Just got word form one of the PG moderators , pretty much said what I wrote above as far as anotehr process somewheres.....Heres what he wrote.
-----------------------
I am pretty certain that it is another executable file that is probably not in the main Avast folder but possbly in Windows system32 folder or one of it's sub folders.
Avast support should be able to tell you which of it's files call up a service/driver and then you can make the necessary allows
--------------------------

Anyways, as mentioned all in avast folder is clicked on and given full rights.. Any suggestions??

Thanks yall

Well i'd go with my avast! External Control utility and schedule Boot-Time scan externaly from it :P You can get it in my signature.
This is the easiest way. You should also update avast! IAVS before Boot-time scanning with AEC too.

There are no perfect defense against PC gremlins.  I keep ONLY the operating system in the primary C partition (only 710MB), then make weekly backup image file of that partition.  That way, I can restore the PC with the good image file in case of a major corruption.

I don't even run a full-time AV scanner in the background.  Just ZA Pro 4.5 (high security mode) and the e-mail scanner.  This is one way to obtain a fast PC with near-perfect restoration capability.  There are many good imaging software...True Image, Drive Image, BOOTITNG, etc....

Thanks all.  Does anyone know why PG wont allow updates to work for avast.  One of the moderators at PG forum said there must be an external file somewheres which I cant find that I must allow.  If anyone has thsi info i would be appreciated. Im new to this PG program, so any suggestions would be so cool.


And again thank you for the avatar my good friend....

For me, not a trouble (free version of PG and Pro version of avast  8)

One of the moderators at PG forum said there must be an external file somewheres which I cant find that I must allow.

Datagg, the only file that asks for permitions into firewalls is avast.setup.
Do you have the services of avast set to be run automatically with Windows? Specially aswUpdSv.exe

Tech, yes all runs when windows is turned on.  But, with pg full version is protecting all system with all instances protected globaly, and then inseting avast exe and gi9vinh them allow rights, still wont allow dlownloads for avast..disable global block drivers and services in protection, it then will download again...

So eitehr im missing a exe file to allow, or it is somewhere esle and i cant find it..... In anotehr thread, this guy tells me to tell avast.setup to allow in list, yet this exe doesnt exist in the avast folders..... So im really lost here to say the least.

And Max, i hope it never happens to you either bro....

Datagg, I think avast.setup is under setup folder of avast (avast4\setup).
It's created by setup.ovr, for instance, renaming itself from setup.ovr to setup.exe.

In the past, kubecj said me this will bring trouble but is how it works.
I was trying to access the Control Panel applet of avast!

Hmm I see the .ovr...gave it full rights, still nothing....

It went in the list as a exe though, showed the avast ball... yet still same as before, not enough rights....this is very frustrating, i know it has to be somehing we are just missing.

Tech, watchign in the avast folder when trying to access a download, the ovr dose indedd turn to avast.setup.........yet it leaves once i click ok to access rights denied.....so i cany get it in the allow list. Making the.ovr in list wit hful access changes nothing. Perhaps an avast peep can shine in here to help also.  

OS is xp home....

For the hell of it tech, i tried to reinstal avast to see if anythign comes up, it wound up being the same denial for access rights.......uncheck the global protection bloclk driver and services, it works again.......every exe has been given rights thus far in avast folder, there must be something strange im missing here.....  anyone

If you can't give access rights to a non-existent (at the moment) file - how about simply copying the avast.ovr file to avast.setup, granting the access and then deleting it again?

I guess I should note that I don't know anything about PG, so I can't say how (whether) it detects the validity of the file (if it's just a name, or even the content - the file will be updated during avast! updates).

Igor, is there a particulary reason for updating this way (a file changing itself to another name)? You need to allow firewall access and, in this case, Process Guard access...

I'm afraid it will be so stupid to detect only the file name that PG must have any kind of CRC check...  ::)

I guess it has a reason, but you'd better ask Kubec about it ;D

As for the check... well, the content of the file is updated during each program update - that's the fact.
