Avast dcing me from msn messenger 2009 and giving error on wlm

I am using Avast 5 and latest virus database. And for a while Avast has been dcing me without error. I looked at event viewer and i got this error.

  1. install again your System OS / RESTORE
  2. Is there a different option?
  3. Just add the file to the exception list to stop being flagged.
  4. if one of your file have 1 virus it cause system not stable , this file must be in quarantine don't fix or remove.
  5. I dont have a virus in my system and i already tried and put it in the exception list but still not working.
    EDIT: Avast did not show any errors and messages.

  9. You're saying with msn messenger 2009....

    Is there a reason you can't run the current version of msn messenger/windows live?

    I'm using Avast love it and I have windows live/messenger installed, actually just put on the newest version last night. I'm using Win 7 64 bit. I'll admit I did have issues with one of the older versions of msn though so perhaps an update of that will resolve.

    Just my $0.02 though.

    It may have been also that you had the firewall in Avast set to block the port msn was trying to use to connect.
  10. I love Avast it was great that it blocked many viruses but I don't like that there are missing features on latest WLM. My computer is new and is a month old. I installed latest WLM when i got the computer. I disabled firewall in Avast. So how do I fix this? And also what do you mean "an update"
