Well hopefully Tech will be able to beaver through all the posts.

Should you need to do this in the future, the easiest/best option is to copy and paste the last 400-500 lines into a new text file created using notepad and save the file as something like ladydark.txt. When you then make a new post, click the Additional Options and attach the file to the post.

That makes it easier for you and for Tech to read.

I see no problems in your logs.
Search for the word "error" and try to post only the lines with error messages.

can you provide more details about the re-register?
perhaps a re-install or repair would be more appropriate
- yr account can always be reset through the email address

or did you re-install when you re-registered?

After registering, uninstalling, reinstalling, if your message says cannot connect to server.. Perhaps you missed the directive at the end to disconnect from your server, then reconnect? I had to do that twice.  All in all I have found Avast to be less than user friendly.  Just logging in, in order to get the disconnect/reconnect info to you in this post, was ridiculous and not clear at all. Particularly - the "verifying E-mail" requiring a code with THE ONLY PLACE to insert it being "resend activation code" box.. I sure hope Avast isn't run by baboons.. Also, how does one get the pop-up, "Update Avast" from driving you nuts?   I'm updated already... Well, that's my two cents.

Hm, never noticed the disconnect, reconnect thing...I will go thru the whole thing again and try that...and yes I agree, it isn't all that user friendly...
thanks for the input
