Avast7 is not a valid win32 application error message
« on: February 25, 2012, 08:57:12 AM »
Hi, I just d/loaded the new Avast7 pro program for my new computer and it won't execute the exe file.  I have run the latest Malwarebytes scan which found nothing:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.60.1.1000

Database version: v2012.02.25.02

Windows XP Service Pack 3 x86 NTFS
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

I have also run F-Bagle and that didn't find anything either.  Any other suggestions?

Avast adds a certificate to their executables. Right click on the setup.exe file -> properties and look for the digital certificate signature. Is it there?

Being a new computer, do you have any pre-installed security tool? Did you uninstall it? Did you remove the remnants with the respective removal utility?

I would suggest download anew.
