AVAST 7 UPDATE KILLS MY XP??
« on: March 27, 2012, 09:13:51 PM »
Help, Avast Lover until the 7.0 Killed my older XP SP3, won't boot just continues to "restart".  I've used the Avast removal utility only to re-install it with the same problem....I'm not a Tech Geek so please be gentle.
Thanks

The same happens to me. Look at the yesterday 16:24 or so post from Gill. You will see some solutions, but none worked for me... so I went away from Avast, my loved antispy for years :-((

Free Avast
I'll have to check tonight "which" 7 update.
All I know is the normal "update" and Bam, no Reboot for me.
No other Virus software, it's had Avast on it for 2 years with regular updates etc without a hitch.
