geek_jessie01, Aug 25, 5:15 pm

its popping up every minute now its driving me mad

geek_jessie01, Aug 25, 5:18 pm

There are several different error images there. The cause will not be the same in each case.

click on the link and wait for a few seconds the one I mean will pop up

geek_jessie01, Aug 25, 5:45 pm

Use this to uninstall it
https://www.avast.com/en-nz/uninstall-utility

Then try again

thank you but this hasn't helped the pop up is coming up every 20 seconds. have run a security scan but nothing shows

geek_jessie01, Aug 26, 8:57 am

What 'security' program did you use?

geek_r.g.nixon, Aug 26, 9:00 am

trend. I think I may have fixed the issue finally. so far so good fingers x

If you have another antivirus installed (Trend) it makes the installation of another problematic, to say the least.

ok its back with a vengeance its going to send me bananas. its only starting popping up lots since I installed trend security

geek_jessie01, Aug 27, 7:58 am

as above - only ONE antivirus at a time

uninstall trend then run the avast uninstall utility

While avast is still (partly) there installing another AV will cause problems

geek_king1, Aug 27, 8:37 am

but I paid for the trend one it cost 130.00 if I unstall it will be gone

geek_jessie01, Aug 27, 9:24 am

I phoned trend and after 1 hour on the phone and lots of fiddling the pop up has gone away

geek_jessie01, Aug 27, 10:37 am

but I paid for the trend one it cost 130.00. Why?

geek_alaine4, Aug 27, 4:45 pm

I brought it from Harvey Norman because I needed protection on my laptop, why else would I buy it for?
