Hi Snoopy - no, you do not need to re-register to make changes to your profile. Once you are at your profile page, you must enter your password in the box provided for the changes you make to your profile to take effect. This is needed so that no one else can change your profile. So, it is these steps ......

1. Go to your profile page.

2. Enter your password in the Current Password box.

3. Make changes that you want to your profile.

4. Click on Change profile button at bottom of page.

I hope this helps you!    :)

Questions collected from all previous posts (many of them  ::) )

Quote
You don't have ODBC drivers installed or they are corrupted. Download them at http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.2htm
My question is:
I continuted the download without installing the driver my ps is running fine, but I don't know if I'm getting the protection?

If you got that message when you tried to install avast!, then you don't have ODBC drivers installed or maybe you have, but those are corrupt... very easy to understand. Reinstalling would help.

At bootup should I see avast logo?
.
.
Can you answer my question about the splash screen at startup?
.
.
Still no splash screen on startup? Etrust and other anti-virus software have splash screens at startup.

No there is no splash screen at bootup, it's really not needed. Why would anyone want that ? To even slow down your boot time ? Thanks, but no thanks ! However, if you must see that splash screen, you'll see when you start avast! Antivirus by right-clicking blue ball and choosing START avast! Antvirus from the menu.

Quote
No uninstall option in start-programs?

No, there is always Uninstall option in Add/Remove programs. That's always primary location where you should uninstall your programs...

I really don't understand why it's so complicated to use avast? I had etrust and it was easy to install and run and has a splash screen at startup.I think Avast is for the advance user...

No, it's not complicated at all. If my father can use it without my interventions and help, and believe me he is happiest man since he started to use it (that's what he keeps telling me and everybody else), then anybody can use it without any problems. If sometimes you have some problems, you can always come here and ask for help. These forums are best forums ever. Free for everybody, no matter are you using freeware version or Pro.

Can you tell me, does e-trust have forums like this ? Free phone support for everybody, e-mail support ? Best friends in forums ? No... so splash screen isn't some feature to be worried about I guess...  ;)

Does advast check for spam?

No, avast! is antivirus tool, not antispam or antispyware... there are other good programs that does that (search these forums for additional help on that subject). That's why avast! is the best. Concentrated to finding and killing viruses, that's what it's really for. It does only that (if you can use word ONLY), but it does it BEST !

Search for my reply number 8 in here:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=9;action=display;threadid=7350;start=msg58914#msg58914

It will give you better picture why we all like avast! so much...

Cheers !

What e-mail addy ? What are you talking about ? There is no any e-mail addy when you want to set your profile in these forums... he (CharleyO) was trying to explain to you how to change your profile in these forums...

Please explain better if you want us to help. If you help us, we can help you more...

Cheers !

This is a (very) late response to the original question.
Your OS is windows 98(se), right? If you have problems with Avast this may help/solve it.

- Remove Avast using the Avast uninstall util
- Reboot
- install the latest MDAC drivers and JET drivers
- Reboot
- Install Avast
- Reboot

As I said, this is if you have Windows 98(se) and are having troubles.. If you have a NT based windows and/or don't have troubles with Avast running correctly, forget what I told here. ;)

Hi snoopy,
I'm glad to see that your problem is finally solved. ;D As far as the posting goes, avast! 4 Home/Pro is usually for problems directly related to avast!.
In this case, this particular problem should probably have been posted in the Genereal Topics Forum.
Have a nice day and enjoy avast! and these Forums. :)
