Avant crashes constantly.

Avant crashes constantly.

It seems to coincide with an advert trying to load when I navigate to a site.I only say that because it
happens more on ad heavy sites and when I first get to the page,within a few seconds.
I have tried all the engines and it appears to crash equally on all three.

My machine is pretty beefy so I don't think it's resources.

I use Ad Aware anti-virus.

Looking around for months now and I don't see anyone else having this type of issue.

Thanks in advance.

There are a few other threads where Avant crashes are mentioned, but none of them report constant crashes.

Do you get any error messages when it crashes?

I'd suggest that you uninstall and reinstall Avant. Back up your Avant Profiles folder to an external drive, disconnect the external drive, and then use the free version of Revo Uninstaller to perform the uninstall (choose Revo's advanced mode). If it finds registry entries and files that are left behind after it runs the Avant uninstaller, have it delete all of them. Then, reboot the computer, download another copy of the installer just in case the one you got last time was damaged, and reinstall Avant.

If you still experience crashes after reinstalling, it could be that some other program running on your computer is conflicting with Avant. The most likely possibilities are antivirus, firewall, and other security applications, utilities that manage memory, or even a display driver.

Is your FlashPlayer up to date? Have you tried turning on "Disable Flash Animations"?
