Hello to all!
I have a problem that Im running into, and Im not sure if its been addressed or not as of yet. (I did look around, but I didnt see anything)
I have been running CAV and the Firewall for the past month or so, and have been very happy so far with things. The problem I ran into is when I tried to share the joy and install CAV on another machine. (FYI, both machines are older Pentium III’s, one at 600 MHZ and the other at 450 MHZ)
I installed the program fine, and the system rebooted with no problems. It then found an update, and asked it it could install it. I said yes, and upon the reboot, the system hangs. The desktop comes up, and so does the start bar, but you are unable to accomplish anything. You can attempt to open a program or get to settings, but the system just acts busy.
I can boot into safemode, and I attempted to uninstall the program, but it would not since it couldnt run Windows Installer. (I have now seen the manual removal instructions, and I will do so when I can get back to that machine) However, I only had the one machine yesterday, and the internet wasnt working, as the system was locked.
Today, I started the system I am typing to you on now, and it informed me that an update had been downloaded, and I needed to restart my system in order to finish it. I did reboot, without thinking, and sure enough, my system was locked. I couldnt get into any of my programs, and nothing would run. I was forced to crash the system and use System Restore to get back to a point before the update.
So, my questions are this:
- What is in this update that was pushed in the past few days? Something in it makes the antivirus very not happy on my machine.
- Has anyone else had this same problem?
- Is there an easy way to uninstall the program from Safe Mode so that I can fix the other computer?
Sorry for the long first post, but I wanted to get the information out there.
Thanks in advance!
