I get the error aswRunDll.exe – Application Error – Avast Antivirus

Added on February 16th, 2015


I get a pop-up every time I turn on my computer with the following text in it: aswRunDll.exe – Application Error.

The exception unknown software exception (0xc0000417) occurred in the application at location 0x72aff979.

Three days later a got the same message with a different end: at location (0x72def979).

What intrigues me is the reference of the location is never the same from one time to another.

The problem is that it does not seem to prevent it from working well, but it bothers me that there is something not right happening.

Can you help me?

Thank you.
