Avast free security
« on: February 29, 2012, 07:09:23 PM »
Since this morning I am getting an urgent message that Avast is turned off.  I can not turn it on, I can not uninstall and I can not install Avast.
"C:\Program Files\AVAST software\Avast\setup\: Setup cannot continue

Another message:  File System Shield Provider not Found.

Can anybody help me?

Greatly appreciated.

only way out is to uninstall in safe mode using aswclear http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
... when you're back in Windows, prior to re-installing, don't forget to delete the Avast folder in program data.
