Icon on bottom left corner is gray
« on: January 19, 2012, 10:16:17 PM »
Avast not working & the icon has a red circle with a white X.  When I tried to fix it I got an error message saying "]AAMV subsystem detected a ARPC error".  I'm running windows 64 on an HP computer.  Can you help?

Hi msladyfrog,

welcome to the Forum! ;)

Do you try to fix it over the GUI (repair) or do you try to make a repair-installation over software > delete/repair?

You can also uninstall the programm with the special uninstall tool of avast. Best in safe mode.
Then try a new installation of the programm after a restart of your PC.

As SKY mentioned have you tried a repair ? go to control panel - programs and features ( remove programs ) - double click avast and scroll down to repair and accept, reboot when done.

By the way SKY i liked your old avatar better  ;D  ;)

I'm using avast for several years and I am also repairing some PC's which had viruses. I encountered about this issue twice. It’s just simple. What I did is just I re install and update my Avast ad It's working fine.

@ markgarate91,

Glad to hear everything is working out fine now.   Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

@ craigb,

I'm sure you liked SKY's old avatar better as did many others.  ;D  I guess they are trying to give you a hint SKY.

Thank you, craigb,
I think this should be a compliment for me!
I'll see, perhaps I'll take it again. :-*

Oh yeah, I understand.

You're a little bit crazy, guys - but very nice... ;)

Hi craigb!
Hi SafeSurf!
~SKY~ mentioned in our german topics, that we (you both and me)talked about her new (and sad) avatar. I told her, that we didn't and that's the truth.  ;)
This was our first contact now.
Ererything will be allright and quite well.

I think you missed the point....
markgarate91 didn't have a problem and we didn't solve it.
markgarate91 was simply offering a suggestion.  :)

You missed the point...re-read my post.  We are still waiting for the OP (msladyfrog) to return and post.  At this point I don't know if she/he will.  But thank you for your comments while the rest of us here were making light of things.   ;D
