Anyone have the answer
« on: July 02, 2004, 12:10:41 AM »
Posting here in fear the question got buried in last thread.


In the Process Guard program.  I globaly gave full protection to all programs. In the list, I add an allow to let programs only to get there updates. I have gotten all to work, yet avast will not hook up.( for downloads - Not enouigh user rights it says to perform this task ))  I have put all EXE files that reside in the AVASt folder( gave them all ALLOW rights), yet still no go.  i wrote in the PG forums, and this was the reply...
-------------------------
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.
-------------------------------

So, if anyone knows this program, or what am i supposed to allow other than what is in avast folder please let me know.  Right now I have turned off Global rejects to allow for updates, but with that haxdoor virus that wiped out all all my comp and all protection programs, I would like to set it up Globally again.

Thanks

Hope it helps  ;D

One trick you'll have to play. You'll need to grant permissions for avast4\setup\avast.setup (#17 above), but this file doesn't exist other than for a brief period (during updates, I think). So, go to your avast4\setup directory and create the file (it can contain anything, or even nothing). Configure the permissions (as above) into PG and then delete the file you temporarily created. It's probably this trick that you've been missing.

Did you try my solution to the missing file (see the bottom on my post above)? That's what I had to do to get it to work.

I even seem to recall an error message along the same lines as you say.

1) go to your Avast installation directory
2) go to the "Setup" subdirectory
3) from Explorer, rt click New->Text Document. Call it "avast.setup"
4) set permissions for this file in PG (as shown above)
5) delete the avast.setup file.

Good luck

Datagg, does this mean that PG does not check (validate) the file?
Only checks the file name? Well, could we call this protection?  ::)

Anyway, glad you have your avast back...  8)

No tech it does,   but the setup.ovr is just for a brief moment, so I guess it wasnt able to validate it enough to run the command. The .ovr turns into the avast.setup........  I noticed it earlier today, when I was watching folder, and ran a update,  the ovr would dissapear, then the avast.setup woudl show up in its place.  So ealrier, I gave the ovr rights.....but, that didnt work.  It wasnt till, the dude here mentioned about making the effect of the avast.setup was in folder all the time.  So by making a text file, and calling it avast.setup, then giving that full rights, then delete it in the folder, worked.  I assume because the ovr turns into the setup for only a brief moment, so PG didnt have the time to give it rights.....  Its really hard to explain, but it works and well.  i ran the PG killer program to try to shut off all points of avast, and no go...So that did the trick...

Im sure many more will have this same problem, so im gald the info is here and searchable for otehrs.

Thanks tech for all of your help.  And thank you cjtc for that great idea to simulate the proccess..worked like a charm...


Peace all...
