Avant crashes everytime i close it

Post by crakmunkey » Fri Jun 01, 2007 3:00 am

It's been like this since i first installed it 4 or 5 years ago. I guess I finally got tired of it? I dunno. Regardless, even if I right click on the system tray icon and shut it down, it still crashes. When i shutdown Windows, I have to wait for avant to come up and "end program/task" before windows completely shuts down.. It's a huge annoyance that i've just grown acustom to.

I'm running Windows 2000 SP4 with all the latest updates (except IE7). 1.5ghz AMD. nForce 2 video card. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it still doesn't fix anything.

Any ideas? I love Avant and I dont want to give it up. Firefox is my backup with IE as my last optoin (.. i know IE is avant's background or whatever... but avant is so much better)

Thanks!

Take Avant out of the system tray. Go to Tools->Avant Browser Options->Tray Icon and unclick Enable tray icon. By leaving Avant open (as it is in the systray) You are slowing down your closing as Avant is continuing to use resources in the background.

Also, when you "uninstalled/re-installed", did you clean out the registry before the reinstall?

What version of AB do you have? This sounds like an old bug that was resolved many builds ago. Try the latest version if you're not already...

I use the newest version available. I'll try the systray, but it sounds more complicated than that. And no I didn't clear out the registry (i assume by hand); I had just uninstalled through the control panel. I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for the ideas! Hope something works..

Yes, I don't like this little Problem, too.
