    I have just installed Avast and can no longer
    defrag the hard disk. Does anyone know
    how to disable the anti-v so that a disc scan
    will run?

    OS Win98 OE6

    Cheers

    On the interface; click on the 'status' beside "Resident
    Protection".
    When the 'slider' pops up, move it all the way to the left, for
    "disabled".

    Thank you trout! After looking through the help
    files for an hour I have the answer here in minutes!

    Cheers again,
