| Should have followed this thread sooner! The problem came back in 2-3 days. For the last several weeks [or longer], Avast product updates produced this missing dll error. A reinstall using an offline or online EXE [installer] used to fix it -- until the next product update came along. Now, with the desktop, several sudden missing dll errors, Revo Uninstalls, offline/online installs, reconfigurations -- have not solved the problem.|
Avast support suggested AvastClear[Uninstall] program -- will keep you all advised as to how this solution plays out.
If no solution is found for the desktop, after my 3PC license runs out in August, it's either a free-version Avast [partial install], or, Avast and I shall be going separate ways; and I will neither recommend or not recommend Avast Anti-Virus to others.
