I'm Baaaaaaack!
« on: June 05, 2010, 09:03:58 PM »
Yes, I have been unable to run avast!5 PRO or Free on my main computer. Had to go to another antivirus program and I am another of avast!  proponents.

You have seen this graphic here before posted by another user. This one is mine. Click on scan and the program locks up and a hard reboot is required. Takes a few days before it misbehaves.

Well, I removed my OTHER antivirus program, reinstalled avast! Pro on 5/23 and a week later same thing. I put up with it until this morning-- uninstalled and reinstalled avast! and at this moment it seems fine. If another program is causing this problem, does anyone have an idea how I can identify the problem.

Many thanks.

What is the other AV?  Current OS?  What other security/proxy type programs are you still using?  There is a rather extensive list of custom uninstallers at http://uninstallers.blogspot.com/ that may help if you removed something else before the problem started.  Was there an event you can point to where this may have started?  Good luck!

Ed, I'm sorry- too much on my mind right now. OS is XP SP3. Other antivirus was MSE which I installed because I could not get Version 5 to play nice on my Main computer. Avast! works fine on my 4 other computers.

SAS Pro And MBAM paid also installed.

I cannot point to any event which may have started this. I did remove some small programs thinking that they were in a position to be sacrificed. Didn't make any difference.

Nice to see you - again. :)

Thanks Asyn

Should mention that 4 of my computers are configured pretty much the same.

I'm not aware of how to list them all short of typing them all in but here's an example:

You're welcome..! Funny but nice way to list the programs. ;D
As you mentioned that all your machines are configured similar.
Your problem seems to be ZoneAlarm..! Users reported problems with it.
Drop it and replace it with other free firewall software.

OK, I have Zone Alarm Pro on all 5 computers but if that solves my problem--off with it's head.

The avast! installation lasts  about a week on this computer before it causes problems. Pro was installed on this computer on 30 January and has been uninstalled and reinstalled several times.

Let me install another firewall. We shall see what happens in a week or so.

Thanks all.

YoKenny, if this doesn't work, I'm going to come up there and block the opening of your igloo. ;)

If you not feel sure, just try it on one machine first...
We won't block Kenny's igloo..! ;)

OK, boys and girls- Zone Alarm Pro has been uninstalled and I found a Pro License of Online Armor which expires 10 August 2010. Figured I might as well get my money's worth.

Let's see what happens after a week or so.

Thanks all.
