Ever since I had the "blast" hit my home computer, I had to get rid of that then reinstall McAfee.  Now when I turn on my computer, the first thing that pops up is AVSYNMGR.EXE, that there is a problem, and it has to be reported.  Even though it's "reported", it doesn't go away - it keeps popping up each time the machine is turned on.

Does anyone know if this is a resultant problem from the "blast" worm?

AVSYNMGR.EXE is the McAfee VirusScan application as far as I know.  So, no, it isn't necessarily an effect of Blast -- other than that you've had to re-install.  

If you re-installed over the web -- my guess is that part of the install failed.  If you installed off disc there may be a conflict from something in the registry left over from the first install.

Un-install and try again.  If that fails -- you'll probaly have to contact McAfee for support.

Sorry, not much help Karilea.

I don't feel so bad now - I was hit with the same thing and wasn't able to "deal" with it until tonight...

I was lucky, it seems, in that I wasn't forced to reisntall anything, just downloaded a Norton application and killed it.

Hope it works for ya.

Fortunately I'm still on 98.  It works and all my software works -- and I'm not going out on the bleeding edge... heh... when my puter dies -- I'll upgrade -- but why should I mess with something that works?  Just because Gates ships a new one????  NO!!!

One other thing you might check Sunshine is your win.ini file.  If your original install was to a different directory than your subsequent one there may be redundant commands there.  Just a possibility.

Hope you get it solved.

I guess this is a good time to have an Apple instead of a PC.  Ironically, worms typically prefer apples.     Hope you guys get it all worked out.
