problem with my avast

  henry2 12:47 14 Sep 2010

Hi guys,.,.my pc used to work fine with the new free avast 5,after some time when i formatted the pc and installed the avast again it does not work well.
It removes some important files from the not able to open ctrl panel and other things but when i restore the files from the chest everything works again.
What do u think could be wrong?Thanx

Either AVAST is detecting false positives (unlikely as other people would also be reporting the same problems)

or your PC is infected and AVast has removed the files to the virus vault but they are essential files.

Put the files back in the vault
then run
sfc / scannow

windows will replace missing or corrupt files
(it will take awhile to complete and you may be asked to insert the XP CD
