« on: July 31, 2004, 07:25:14 PM »
I am using Win98SE and have had Avast for quite a few months. I ran Avast today and in the middle of running a Windows error message popped up saying "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." I came here to your site and downloaded the virus cleaner and when I try running it I get the same error message...ASWCLNR caused an invalid page fault in
module USER.EXE at 001e:00002a04.
Registers:
EAX=0000000c CS=16f7 EIP=00002a04 EFLGS=00000a02

Dragon,
l
Page Fault errors and the Stack dump are usually caused when an attempt is made by a program to access a memory location which fails.
This is normally not a cause for worry.  Usually rebooting takes care of the problem.

If not, then I would recommend a diskscan and defrag.

Let me know.

Just a curiosity, did you 'empty' your windows temporary folder to cause this error?  ::)

Hmm, strange error from the 16-bit subsystem. Does the same error occurs when you restart the computer and try to start Cleaner again?
What was the exact error of avast! itself? (check the <avast4>\Data\log folder, please - is there a file called unpXXXXXXXX where X are some numbers, with the date corresponding to the crash?)

Did you read and follow the information on the thread I gave the link for, General Advice&Tools for virus/trojan/malware removal ???

Much of the information and other links, etc. should help you. A search of this forum for Win32:Startpage-006 would return much information, this has been a thread topic before (many times).

In order to get into memory a program has to run to put it there, you need to disable that startup entry.

Programs like HijackThis can remove these entries and give you a head start.

1. Clear your temp directory.
2. Clear your browser cache.
3. Read the information (again) on the General Advice&Tools for virus/trojan/malware removal thread that I gave you before. If you need more help, come back here with more info...
