Unfortunately, some of Avast's "shields" could not be enabled, so actual protection was lacking. So I then tried other versions of Avast 9.0 that I could find, but all I could now get was the error "The installer is unable to initialize early avast! self-defence with error 0x0000007f! Aborting!". Even trying to re-install the previous version 9.0.2013 gives this error message! Some research on this error (albeit with different hexidecimal codes) suggested the avast utility "avastclear" could resolve this issue, but so far, no success trying several versions of this utility (some run OK and say that uninstallation was successful, but the same error persists when trying to install Avast 9.0.xxxx). Joe. Well, the only progress over these weeks has been with regards the "The installer is unable to initialize early avast! self-defence with error 0x0000007f! Aborting!" error. If I re-install the earlier 8.0.1497 version, I am able to "install" most 9.0.xxxx versions over this (with the help of NNN4NT5) without errors. However, the "shields" are down and actual protection is lacking (the Avast service, I think it's also called). Joe. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
