Same problem here on a freshly formatted XP Home, no SPs yet or anything. Reinstalling didn't work but downloading those files above did - just a note though - the last link on the list should be

Than you do not have Visual Studio support installed, or not installed correctly. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;326922

Search for the MS visual c runtime.

Excuse me? Why should I have to install Visual Studio?  This is a plain old WinXP  system, and I'm trying to keep intalls to a minimum.  Is Avast not capable of packaging their software right?

I think I'll go back to AVG.

Only thing Vic said was that avast should have installed the files automatically.  It didn't.

There are no MVVC* files in C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4, as that indicates there should be.   So the Avast installer apparently did *not* install those files.

I have found from personal experience that the problem lies not in the file being missing, but in Avast being unable to update the file during upacking.

This is usually due to the fact that Windows "stamps" the files as read only.

Do a system search for ALL dll files to locate the files msvcr70 and 71, and MSVCI70.DLL and MFC70.DLL
These files should be located in the C:/windows/system folder.
Right click on each file to display the dialog box.  If either file/s are "read only', uncheck them.

Then do a manual update of Avast.

Hi, it was actually a problem with the 4.1.501 setups. It will be fixed in a while.

If you're still interested in using avast, please re-download the installation package in about an hour and retry the install.

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
