Activating Anti-theft disabled my LauncherPro

Disabled my Launcher Pro

After installing Avast and enabling anti-theft...my LauncherPro quit working.  Also...firewall is confusing...when we click the options (wi-fi...3 G etc.) does that PREVENT it from opening on those networks or ENABLE it to?   Thought maybe enabling LauncherPro in firewall (however you do that) would solve problem...still no joy.

You disable it by selecting the options.

Thank you Filip.  None of the icons were checked so LauncherPro was NOT disabled...yet it quit working.  I uninstalled Avast and Anti-theft...LauncherPro is working again.  I guess I will reinstall Avast without activating anti-theft feature and see if it works this time without disabling my launcher.

OK...I reinstalled Avast and did not set up Anti-theft.  Avast ran a scan after I opened it and when it was finished I pressed home key and my home screen is fine.

OK, this seems to be an Anti-Theft question. There is a different forum for that Smiley

Ok Filip....if you say so.  All I know is...when I did not activate the anti-theft, Avast didnt steal my homepage icons by disabling my LauncherPro.  Not only did it disable it before...but it even overrode the setting to use LauncherPro everytime I click home icon!

hi what do you mean with disabling? did you try to reboot your phone? (upon enabling anti-theft it shuts down your default launcher which seems to be LauncherPro to hide the icon - now, usually the launcher restarts automatically. if that does not happen a reboot should help)
