Ok so, when I start up avast! I get a message.

Program cannot load iNews (J:/Program Files/Alwil Software/Avast4/DATA/iNews.htm)

I can't find iNews.htm on my comp. so I need to know where I can get it.

After that I get another message.

VPS file was destroyed.
The scan completed with error:
42040 = VPS file was destroyed.

Can anyone resolve my problem?

Have you tried updating? Try update it and see if that fixes it :trumpet:


EDIT: I couldn't find a fix for this.
