My Avast Antivirus will not run, now. I tried to turn it on with Windows Action Center and received this message:
"This program will not run
The program Avast Antivirus provided windows to fix this issue did not run."
I restarted my computer, Avast still did not show up in the taskbar, so I tried to open the program and got the following:
"C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\avastui.exe
The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."
This is in addition to some other problems I've been having; it's becoming ominously similar to a situation many years ago when my Avast, Malwarebytes, and eventually entire system became compromised by an extensive virus. Details on my other recent issues can be found in my previous post here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/632460/decompression-bombs-and-runtime-error-r6025/
Sorry for the lengthy post; I am still having trouble uploading screenshots. Thank you for your time. =)
