I am running the free version of Emsisoft AM, which does not have a resident scanner included. So, it is unlikely that it would conflict with Avast. Moreover it is portable.http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/eek/
My apologies for not understanding the version you had for Emsi.  Since you are still having the problem and a clean install of Avast did not resolve your issue, and you do not want to try a scan with MBAM, as a test I would suggest uninstalling Emsi AM and rebooting to see if this fixes your Avast issue.  If it does not resolve the issue, then you can reinstall Emsi AM and we can continue problem-solving.
Hi, I have run a scan with MBAM already and it didnot find anything. ::)
Regarding Emsisoft, as it is portable, there is no question of installation/uninstallation... ;)
Anyone who knows how to loose can certainly learn how to win.

Could you please invoke a memory dump file to send to Avast to analyze your problem.

Here is additional information on how to invoke a memory dump file:  http://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=71.

Please, zip and upload the C:\Windows\Memory.dmp file to this anonymous ftp server and name it uniquely: ftp.avast.com/incoming.  Avast will analyze it and report back to you in this thread or by email.  If by email, please keep us informed in this thread.  Thank you.

The Emergency Kit is no problem.
I even run the full EAM (resident components disabled) here, without any problems..!! ;)

I would really recommend you to upgrade your ram to 3Gb or so. You could also install XP.
XP Doesn't register 3 gigz of ram

Operating systems based on Microsoft® Windows NT® technologies have always provided applications with a flat 32-bit virtual address space that describes 4 gigabytes (GB) of virtual memory. The address space is usually split so that 2 GB of address space is directly accessible to the application and the other 2 GB is only accessible to the Windows executive software. 

According to this, if your RAM exceeds 2GB, the excess amount will be used only by Windows kernel and therefore the report from Control Panel is quite correct in that it is reporting only the usable RAM for applications.



Before an upgrade of ram I would check to ensure the motherboards specifications... If your motherboard only allows 2 gigs for example, anymore would in fact slow down the computer

There you are wrong; I had a vista computer that has 3Gb which I degrade to XP and XP saw that I had 3Gb.

sq09 try to see if 2 or 3Gb helps; Windows 7 by default uses abit less than 1Gb.
