I've had Avast anti-virus free running on my computer for over a year now with no problems. I tried to download a new program, which failed to install. An Avast error message popped up. this is what it said. the heading was "Avast setup fatal error"
"c:\part-setup_ais-ffffffff.vpx" (that's 8 f's)
setup can not continue
O.K....however the real problem is this dialog box pops up on its own every 30 minutes or so, even though i'm not trying to download anything. I can open the 'cnn' website to read a news article and this error message pops up. After a few dozen of these messages popping up all over the place I sent Avast Tech support a help request. It's been 2 wks. no reply. I resent the request again. After another week still no reply. I deleted avast and installed another av program.Guess what? the error message stills pops up. Obviously Avast has attached itself to another dll, to create a shared file, but how do I find it and kill it. By the way a uninstall / reinstall of the program didn't fix the problem. what's up?
