avast

Post by condor on Thu 23 Aug 2012, 03:05

For some months i was having trouble with my sims 3 crashing to a blue screen - not nice! I uninstalled and reinstalled several times, looked everywhere for the heart of the problem but was unable to find a solution, until my virus detector updated. It slowed my computer to a crawl and I lost my sims game which I had to reinstall again after removing avast. I put Microsoft security essentials on my computer and since removing avast, I have had no crashes and all runs perfectly. I had no idea my virus progam could be the culprit. MSE also found trojans that avast did not pick up. Relieved? You betcha! So I thought i would post this here just in case anyone has similar problems and may look at such situations.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your solution!
That's pretty odd indeed. Maybe it was actually caused by the virus?

We thought so too, but it never interfered qwith anything else - no other games were infected nor any programs. Thank you for your reply.
