So, several off-topic, 100-plus-line political screeds isn't a rant,
"Oh, no! I'm not ranting!", he says as he continues to rant.
I think she's barking up the wrong tree, too, but it's obvious that
you're trying to nurse your continuing grudge against her by bringing
it into unrelated threads.

Uh, oh! Got my head handed to me. Deserved it. Can find repair info on-line.
Ave atque vale.
just like your beef with Avast, you truly are clueless and
NO CRIME has been commited.
Just like your cousin told you and obviously knows you're a

I was thinking... what a dufus... Let's all call Avast and complain with
different problems. My mouse is running hot. My keyboard has this funny
white powder in it. My computer runs too fast. The power is out and my
computer doesn't work. If I clean my screen will I get rid of the bugs?
I washed my key board in the dish washer, and now it
doesn't work. I broke the slide out cup holder. The
picture is the wrong size for the screen. How do I
get this internet stuff? I need to get connected
to some thing.
Hope cousin Sara will forgive me telling about her
questions to me.
Actual call. I had a lady call and ask if her monitor was
dead. She had placed one of her potted plants on top of it.
Yup, she watered it. When she saw water had leaked all through
her monitor, she turned on her monitor to see it it still
worked. Stink and smoke time.
Had she let it dry out first, it may have still worked.
I have my own computer consulting firm. Never
a dull moment.
Started doing credit card security (PCI) consulting.
Oh my goodness the criminality out there. I now
pay cash as much as I can.
Also, don't use Windows, if you can avoid it.
Falling for that is something that I would associate with a 24 year old
Some of those software "remedy" outfits are based in locales from which
a lot of viruses/malware originate.....
Backup your files to an online storage place, or at least to a separate
hard drive, do a re-partition/format of your o/s HD, do a re-install,
install a good anti-virus program (maybe your ISP even furnishes one
free), and stay away from this "repair" crap.
If you want to avoid a lot of the problems associated with the junk the
MS monopoly has generated, consider switching over to Ubuntu o/s (a type
of linux). It's free and comes with word processor, spreadsheet, email
program, all kinds of free stuff.
Not only do their techs not know their *** from their elbow, but their
hours and hours of unsuccessful efforts have ****ed up my computer so
badly I have lost valuable programs and documents.

Aha, finally you cleared things up. If you called an official
Avast number it's on them. If you accepted a random phone call it's on
Avast should never offer a service they can't back up,
financially, if necessary. Do you have the number you called ? Is it,
or was it on the Avast page ?
If it is, save a copy of the page pronto. Also phone and
financial records. Evidence.
If it was an incoming unverified phone call, it's a scam.
