TO: S.Z.Craftec & Technical

Hi Guys,

Based on both your input and SZ's commentsre  Process Guard I duly jettisoned it and proceeded to "Shoot the individual" who recommended it to me.

Avast is now safe and well and working to perfection!!

I just wanted to state my appreciation to you both for the help and tolerance shown me.

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work, helping 'juniors' like me!

Cheers, Johnboy

You're more than welcome. I knew something must be wrong with that program. Actually, maybe it just need to be reconfigured (actually, properly configured and adapted to your specific needs), but this way it gives you just troubles, nothing else. It looks like it's made to protect your system, but c'mon... protecting your system by not letting you install one of the best antiviruses out there, that's unforgivable.

Again, I'm glad you solved your problem, and you almost went to other antivirus  ;D You see ? Sometimes, you just need to calm down a little bit, try to think what programs could be causing the problem, and solution is always somewhere out there. We are here to help, but you should stick around as well. Now, you have enough experience with that program (Processes Guard), and you could help someone else with possible exact the same problem in the future  ;)

Take care !

Johnboy, I'm glad to know you're ok now. Welcome to avast forums.
Anyway, Process Guard used to be a good application. Last version was completely useless for me: I just uninstall. Old ones does not allow disabling (killing) the ashServ.exe (avast scanner). Newer ones are like a joke  :P :'(
I can terminate both Process Guard and avast services  :P :(

Hi Technical,
Thanks a lot for the info', with the amount of junk and nasties out there you do tend to take other peoples advice.
Not all of it useful, thankfully there is a forum with guys like you around.
Cheers for now.
John

Change ODBC to XML in avast4.ini or use RejZor's AEC to do so.

This has been explained in many threads already. Please use the search option on this board next time before asking. Also please do not post in someone elses thread if you do not have the exact same problem. That is confusing.

Like Eddy said, you may try to open the <avast>\data\avast4.ini file and in the [Common] section, change the item Database=ODBC to Database=XML. This could prevent the Microsoft Jet drivers from accessing the database... does it have any (positive) effect?

Even, you could try to repair your installation:
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).
You must be connected to the internet while repairing .

If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

I fixed my problem changing the avast4.ini file to XML as you told me to do it.

Now i have other problem i can't turn on the "avast on access" i received a message that say "the requested resident task was not found, the operation could not be completed".

Thanks.

Which provider (resident task) was not found?
Which one is 'disable' or not installed?

If you try to restart the providers, what do you get?
Last tentative:
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Change function in the popup window
See if the providers are correctly added.
