Windows 7: Avast removing All exe's, runonce trojon

Avast removing All exe's, runonce trojon

Hey guys,

My avast keps flagging most of my programs as trojons under the runonce process.
Have to disable avast to work anything. Tried updating and reinstalling, avast boot scan flags all executables.

Problem started from a cracked game exe from my external harddrive. I installed the game on 11 pc's with same avast versions perfectly but when i plugged the harddrive into my college pc its mcaffe av flagged the cracked game exe and reported threat removed. From then the exe never worked(eg. windows said i wasnt an executable program)

when i plugged the harddrive into my laptop avast immediatley removed the game exe and now avast is flagging everything.

does anybody have any insight on this?

i could remove avast all together and maybe start using another av program but i like avast :P

any help would be much appreciated thanks guys.

ha no free version, have had it on this laptop for over a year and have always used it on other computers, first time i've seen this. I check other forums and most people just either clean installed or switch av programs, was wondering if theres a solution like a virus definition mismatch or something, havent explored the world of security in college yet so i'm not quite sure.

Although unlikely as the college pc's have up to date av and only allow users to modify the desktop folder, that could be a possibility, but rather than guess the exact cause can I please get some solutions?
