OA blocking everything, even itself

Recommended Posts

When restarting and then logging in (after the wizard does it's thing), I get an error that atbroker.exe and userinit.exe failed to start, then a blank desktop.

I reboot and the desktop appears but a whole slew of startup programs fail to start, including OA. I could not start any other executable either - including OA uninstall executable.

I had to uninstall in safe mode - a system restore did not work.

It was OA free v4.5.1.431 and I have avast! free installed.

Going to OA's Exclusions list under Options and adding the Avast! folder (Alwil Software or AVAST Software depending on your installation) could solve the problem.

Don't forget to check the box on the left to include also subfolders: image

I would also suggest to turn off Avast! before installing OA in order to have the opportunity for excluding the entire Avast!'s folder before rebooting the system.
