I removed Alwil Avast antivirus from my Vista Bussiness computer and installed Mc Afee Suite. Everything works fine execpt when I open Microsoft Outlook I get the following message:
"The add in "C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast\ashOutXt.dll" could not be installed or loaded. This Problem may be resolved by using Detect and Repair on the Help Menu.
I followed the instructions but it dose not repair the problem.  How stop this message from appearing ?

hi,

Try this:
Quit MS Outlook, search your system drive for a file called "extend.dat" and delete it (or rename it).The extend.dat file is in a hidden folder, so if you're using Windows Search function , you need to explicitly enable searching of hidden/system files.
