  1. avast! has a self-protection that prevents it from being removed. That would need to be disabled before trying to uninstall it via other means. Also, there is no guarantee that Revo Uninstaller will remove all parts of avast!, so I do recommend using the official uninstall tool (you will still need to disable the self-protection in avast! before it will uninstall it).

    You are correct.

    But, bluevelvet said in the first post above: "I have Avast but it is not working and i can,t uninstall it or remove it."

    Normally, you go to Avast´s settings and turn off the "self-protection" if you want to "kill" Avast, but when it´s not working...?

    Then you´ll have to go into "Services" as i posted above.

    I know, because i recently had exactly the same problem myself, trying to remove Avast....

  2. Try this:

    Start "Services":

    left-click on the "startbutton"

    type "Services" in the run-window

    select "Services" from the listed programs

    right-click and select "run as admin" (you can skip this if you are using an ADMIN-account, if so then just left-click)

    find Avast, click on that service and set it to disabled.

    then try again to uninstall Avast.

    Free Antivirus?

    Emsisoft AntiMalware (EAM) works (of course)...

    But there no realtime-protection in the free version.

    MSE should work without any problem together with OA.

    i´ve used EAM, MSE & Avast (yes, all 3 !) together for years without any problem at all.

    But i can´t answer about Avast 7, because i´m now using Windows Server 2008-R2 as my primary O/S, and those two Avast 7-versions that i´ve tried created problems on WS2008-R2.

    Avira have also worked well with OA previously, but i haven´t used Avira for years, so i don´t know about the latest version.

  3. You can run the wizard "manually" if you want.

    Use Windows explorer or some other file-manager, go to your EAM-folder which normally is located in C:\program files\ (or C:\program files (x86) on a 64-bit system).

    Then just click on a2wizard.exe...

    If you want to run it often, then create a shortcut on your desktop.

    "drag" the a2wizard.exe to the desktop with the right mousebutton, and create a shortcut.

  4. Thanks a lot, it's strange because it is exactly what you said earlier

    ???

    What have i said ?

    I have two computers running Avast, and OA, but only one of them is having this issue. Hmmm One of them is Win7 32-bit, and the one that developed the problem is Win 7 64-bit, I wonder if that is contributing?

    Probably, there are many problems with compatibility on 64-bit O/S-versions.....

  5. Good to hear that it works now.

    After people reported those 11.3-problems Adobe released a "fix", a new upgraded 11.3-version that didn´t "fix" anything.

    So i went back to the old 10.2-version.

    DrBB01: are you using "Mutual exclusions", have you told both Avast & OA to ignore each other ?

    if you haven´t, then you might have problems with Avast´s Behavior Shield.

    Have you also created "Mutual exclusions" now ?

    If not, then i recommend that you do it.

  6. open a command-prompt (cmd.exe)

    enter the name of the setup-file and add /DIR=, followed by the path to the directory where you want to install it.

    fx. EmsisoftAntiMalware6Setup.exe /DIR="H:\Programs\EAM"

    tip: first rename the file to fx. EAM.exe, then open a command-prompt, that will save a lot of typing....

  7. Hackerman1 - I'm sorry, but I don't know what HIPS is?

    I noticed that since you listed windows firewall under "HIPS"... ;)

    HIPS=Host Intrusion Prevention System.

    google "HIPS".

    Then you can find some good info that explains it.

    I'm trying to follow what you're telling me. Are you saying I should use Online Armor instead of AVG?

    No.

    I said that windows firewall doesn´t have any HIPS....

    And that´s why it´s a good idea to use another program, fx. Online Armor (OA) in combination with windows firewall, because OA has HIPS.

    OA´s Program Guard=HIPS

    And if you do so, then turn off OA´s firewall and just use the Program shield, because you should not use 2 firewalls.

    Are you with me now ?

    The only Emsisoft Rules I have set up are either Excluded or Monitored.

    I meant windows firewall, have you setup any rules for the firewall ?

  8. I see that you list "microsoft firewall" under HIPS.

    Actually, windows firewall doesnt offer any HIPS, that´s why it´s a good idea to use another,program, fx. Online Armor (OA) in combination with windows firewall,

    and then turn off OA´s firewall and just use the Program shield.

    But which settings are you using for windows firewall ?

    Are all outgoing connections allowed or have you setup any "rules" for outgoing and incoming connections ?

  9. Hi !

    There was a similar post a few days ago.

    Try this, as it fixed the problem:

    Start "Services":

    left-click on the "startbutton"

    type "Services" in the run-window

    select "Services" from the listed programs

    right-click and select "run as admin" (you can skip this if you are using an ADMIN-account, if so then just left-click)

    Scroll down or type "O"

    Take a look at OA´s "services", are they all set to "Automatically" ?

  10. Hello andrewf:

    Yes, I have "Launch Online Armor at next startup" checkbox ticked at Options->General in OA configuration--I stated so in my original post.

    Hello hackerman1:

    The first of the two was set to manual; I reset it to auto as you suggested and that has fixed it. Many thanks, hackerman1

    The thing that has me puzzled is that everything was fine until a few days ago, and I had not changed anything.

    Good to hear that OA works now.

    Regarding why it was off, when did you install Norton AV ?
