I see avast still haven't sorted this issue.
What happened was CF removed it from startup so it doesn't stop CF from running when it launches again at startup. After the CF run, CF will replace it so avast starts up again, but avast gets in the way and thinks CF is trying to do something other than good and stops it.
Annoying I know, but we can fix it.


  • Now open a new notepad file.
  • Input this into the notepad file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "avast!"="C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exe"

  • Save this as fix.reg, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click fix.reg to run it.
  • Select yes to the registry merge prompt.

Darn.
Re-download the installer for avast!, uninstall it and re-install it. Smile

WAIT.

Re-run the reg script (the double backslash one) in safe mode.

I don't think it will find anything, CF log came back clean.
It will probably find infected restore points. But as long as you don't use system restore, there's no problem. I have to head off now, so if it finds infected restore points, use these instructions.

Your System Restore Points are infected and need to be cleaned
To clean them, Please do the following

To turn off System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
4. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.

Now we need to make a new restore point.
To turn on System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (To turn on System Restore), and then click OK.

It will likely find CF's quarantine folder, so delete this folder too.
C:\Qoobox
