Vista and Avast AV

  Charlie Babbage 21:55 28 May 2007

Is anyone else having problems running the free Avast Home edition under Vista?

I've just installed Vista. The Windows Security Center shows that virus protection is turned off. When I try to turn it on I get an error message stating 'Program cannot activate resident part (Standard Shield provider not found)

I've tried downloading and reinstalling Avast but still get the same error message. It will scan the computer files ok.

Any help given will be much appreciated.
