Re: Latest antivira update - problem

Quoted text here. Click to load it


Apologies - the program is Avira Antivir (damn stupid name for
a good program - I always have trouble with it).

Web site is www.free-av.com

Used the program for years but there's definitely some conflict with my own
system ( which is fairly standard ) Sometimes I'm a bit
suspicious about my GeForce graphics card - and no doubt lots of driver
updates are overdue.

Anyway -- that's it

Thanks for suggestions/advice

If this update is the first that has messed your w98se then you are very
lucky indeed.Personally i wouldnt use it on any 98/se/me system as it is
clearly (check the forums and your own experiences of it)very buggy on
these systems.If its any help... i think youll find all the problems you
mention will miraculously disappear when you uninstall antivir.

My first attempt to update after install today was: a general protection
fault in kernal32dll-->forcing a shutdown ie6-->forcing a shutdown of Avira
AntiVir PE classic. The update was aborted after completion of the download.
20+minutes wasted. The shield says its up but icon disappeared from the
system tray. This process with reboot repeated its self a few times.
Shutdown.Coldboot. System processes for Avira seem to be running ok. Maybe
tomorrow I will try again to update. These were my first experiences with
this software on win98se with 2k and all critical updates.

It is working now. Update successful. There are problems with kernal32dll
forcing shutdown of prog~ , the instablity is between anti-spyware and AV.
