Thanks I'm hoping this solves the problems I'm having since updating my present version today.

What version did you go back to ?
You would need to go back to avast 5.0.677 if your problem was with avast 5.1.889 or 5.1.864, e.g. version 5.1.xxx related.

You should also do a clean reinstall:
Download the 5.0.677 version of avast from filehippo and save it to your HDD, somewhere you can find it again. Use that when you reinstall.

- Download the avast! Uninstall Utility, aswClear5.exe find it here and save it to your HDD (it has uninstall tools for both 4.8 and 5.x).
  • 1. Now uninstall avast! (using add remove programs, if you can't do that start from the next step), reboot.
  • 2. run the avast! Uninstall Utility from safe mode, first for 4.8 if previously installed and then for 5.x, once complete reboot into normal mode.
  • 3. install the latest version, reboot.

If you can post the link to the other topic.

It sure would help DavidR an avast! Technical advisor with your signature information like he has.

Please go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information  then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.
