Ok, it's now clean.

Nice one, cheers :rolleyes:


Now, is there anyway I can get that avast anti virus icon back in the right-hand corner again? I'm just not sure its operating again because of it.... :rolleyes:

If you run the program and look in the options, there should be some kind of "run on startup" button kicking around somewhere. Re-tick that.


Personally though, I would uninstall Avast and just download AVG free edition instead.
