Unable to Restart Avast
« on: March 04, 2010, 03:57:34 PM »
I turned on my computer this morning & it is saying "Unsecured" and "that the service has been stopped or is in an inconsistent state".  I am unable to restart or fix the issues, or even run a scan.  I have turned off my computer, but still no changes...Please help me!

What is happening with the installer and the stability of the installations?
More and more users are complaining? ???

A VPS update shouldn't have any impact on  restarts as it doesn't change any program functions.

That is also unlikely as according to another topic, this is related to a loop of scheduled scans and not avast Restart.

What happened with you? Did anyone help?

How long have you had avast 5.0 installed ?
Did it work previously?

What version of avast 5.0 have you got, 5.0.462 is the latest ?

Have you tried a repair of avast. Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and scroll down to Repair, click next and follow.

Tried that with no success.  Anyone have any other suggestions ?  I've run malware scans.  Uninstall / reinstall ??

What about the questions asked of peggydrak, if you can answer those, they help us to help you ?

Add another question to the list:
Have (or did) you another Anti-Virus installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?
