Hello,


I uninstalled my avast 4.8 antiviral on-access Web shield from my computer from the desktop icon. I was asked if I just wanted to delete the icon, or uninstall the program. I selected "uninstall the program, and proceeded to do so. "Something" did not go as planned. Upon realizing that I had screwed up, I went to my recycle bin, and attempted to "reinstall" Avast 4.8. Only the avast icon reapeared. When I click on the Icon, the message I receive states that Avast is no longer working, has been moved, and ask if I want to delete the Icon.

I have tried everything that I know to do. When I attempted to redownload Avast 4.8, will not download onto my computer period. It will load up to a point, and then stop. I do get a message in my browser area telling me that active x is blocking a program. I also received a message mentioning the router had been reset/a connection was not being made. what is really weird is the fact that I can download cycber defender among others. I don't want them.

Please help.
