My personal option of bonding with my cousins aside, the reason I have not been in touch with my blog for several days was the technical lapse of my antivirus that irked me to the deepest of my groins.
The recurring problem has always began at start-up, during which the interface should be available for usage. My original desktop, however, would, in a snap, switch to the Avast! Safe Zone. Simply put, the usual Windows interface won’t open. I could not see the task bar, the start menu–just about everything that should be there. What had been visible was a gray techie-looking desktop wallpaper with a couple of Avast! icons.
The Avast! Safe Zone interface resembled Windows’, that is, it had a taskbar and a pseudo start menu button, in which case contained the Avast! logo. It also showed the time at the right-most side of the screen and a green <- icon beside which should, in its most obvious function, redirect me to my original desktop, only it didn’t. I’ve been clicking these same things time and again, and rebooting my PC minute after minute, but none resolved the issue.
Finally when it seemed I won’t be able to fix it to the best of my geeky skill, I used my cousin’s PC and googled for the solutions to this particular problem, reassuring myself that this jackshit had not only occurred in my precious computer. It appeared that a lot of users in the Avast! community experienced the same inconvenience. Most of whom have not resolved the problem as yet. I did everything those who successfully decoded this unamusing puzzle advised, but none worked for me still.
Fearing the insurance of my files, I flexed my arms long and fixated myself to my computer: It’s on! I rebooted my computer and ran the Safe Mode start-up. The Avast! Safe Zone with all its glitches, if it happens to be a virus or a service malfunction, apparently cannot bridge your PC while in safe mode. Roving the pointer to the Start menu, I quickly brought myself to the Control Panel. Simply uninstalling Avast! in my system while in Safe Mode solved the riddle. You see, none is so big a problem to those who think, haha!
I’ve used Avast for ages, like if the company ever reward loyal users, I’d probably get my own plaque. Lucky is Avast! to have users like me who’s still willing to use their service after discommoding me big time. After fixing the problem, I reinstalled Avast! After all, their the best free antivirus for non-commercial users.
