Do you have any other av installed?
Or did you had one installed?

Honestly you really need to keep this all in one topic as you are constantly repeating this and it just leads to the same suggestions being offered.

By keeping it in one topic people have all the information in one place and don't have to repeat suggestions already tried and failed.

I see at least 4 different topics you started on this or very similar and it is as confusing as he**, it doesn't help you nor the people trying to help. It just causes repetition, which isn't helping you or those seeking to help.

the problem of avast service not startin up was common to all xp users in version 5.1.864. so i posted about it and it got resolved in .884 build which was a beta released to fix this problem..
but now after updating to .889 build it started all over again..

hope this would consolidate my posts

You can probably go to File Hippo and find Build 5.0.677 and revert to that if it worked OK.

thanks thats the same thing i did. i have one yr internet security license.. filehippo contains only free version and no AIS.
do any one of u have the setuo of  AIS-5.1.884 ?
i initially downloaded it from http://files.avast.com/files/beta/5.0.874/setup_ais.exe
but now the link is dead.. is there any place where avast stores these setups??

5.1.884 is more slick and faster than 5.0.677 so it would be better if i get that ::)
