    Hi,

    I installed the free copy of Avast Anti-virus program on my daughter's laptop. I have a problem getting it to start. I checked in Services and the it is set to automatic, but it is stopped and I can't start it. I get an error code 1503. I have it installed on my deskop with no problems.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Gail
