I have been having a few problems with my version of avast! 4.0 antivirus, basically because it wouldn't update to the newest version no matter what I tried. So, I uninstalled it.
When I went to check my mail, it couldn't connect to the virgin.net server! The reason was that avast! had a mail protection scanner, and it had to re-configue the e-mail IP address to 127.0.0.1 or something like that.
Thern, everytime I try to download and install the home version of avast!, it keeps coming back at me saying that it can't self-extract...so I can't install it.
So now I have no protection and no mail! What do I do and can you help???
I had created a disk a while ago with lots of programs on that I downloaded from sites that, just in case I do have to wipe my hard disk clean and start over, I won't have to go and download them again.
I had avast! version 4.0 on there, and with a bit of paience, the program now works and I can recieve my e-mail again!
