Hi folks, newbie here. Been getting a couple of these recently but last night got one can't remember how it was described but their was a new web browser tool which could be selected but I didn't bother with that. I didn't reboot last night but this morning my system winxp wouldn't boot up.
Working in safe mode avast was showing up as
When I clicked on fix nothing happened.
After running a few scans I found one infected file, PUP.StartUpM..which I removed.
but system wouldn't boot up in normal mode.
Left it for a while and when I came back it booted up normally...*phew*
Now was this an Avast problem or not and what should I do. Avast is still unsecured....
should I do an uninstall and reinstall and will I have to register if I do.
I see someone had a similar problem back in April.
