Avast has a freak out, goes on a false positive spree (Download Squad)

Dec 3rd 2009 10:17AM I wasted 2 hours this morning trying to fix a laptop that would only boot as far as showing the wallpaper with icons. Was able to stop the explorer task and restart it to get a 'crippled' desktop up. System restores didn't help. Uninstalling Avast solved the problem. Sad as I've been using Avast for years without issues, but an issue of this magnitude really takes me back to the saying..."You get what you pay for".
