I found this link and used a tool called delete doctor
to remove threatfire upon system reboot.

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?p=1222780

Didn't get the error this time, not yet anyway.
Will have to start Spyware Doctor and make sure it still works,
without the error.

Couldn't find that file you mentioned.
I am using Online Storage to access my AB.

Thank you again.

Ok, issue resolved.
The error message is gone.
Thank you for your help.


It was definitely PCTools Threat Fire causing the Avant Browser error.
This has caused many headaches over the last few days,
so I am upset with the makers of Spyware Doctor for this.
If anyone else gets this error, just use a tool called Delete Doctor (not related to Spyware Doctor).
Do a windows search for TFservices.exe and paste the file location into Delete Doctor.
Then use the delete on reboot function and reboot.
This should work as a great ThreatFire removal tool, and uninstall Threat Fire completely.
I do remember having ThreatFire problems in the past, and won't be using it again.

axeman, thanks for the input. It's reassuring to know.

kudos, before I delete those profiles, is it still necessary?

Uh oh!
Just set ie bookmarks as favorites again, and error returned.
I like that setting so I can access groups,
(which by the way are missing from my online profile since I reinstalled XP 2 weeks ago).
I had about 50 groups so this is disconcerting.
Any way to recover them?

No need, you have ascertained that Threatfire was the culprit.

Forgot to mention that I tried unchecking ie bookmarks as favorites first,
because of this original part of this thread and the recommendations that were made to jis.
Trying to figure out why the error is partly related to ie bookmarks as favorites, and why that made the error return. Would you like me to post the new error message?

While waiting for a response (no rush by the way), I noticed that
TFService has returned to my task manager, as I suspected.
The Delete Doctor attempt didn't work after all.
ThreatFire is back!
Back to square one.

Use the attached file to remove ThreatFire - works with v3 and v4.

Thanks again Kudos.
I disabled Threat Fire in Spyware Doctor,
and used that Remove ThreatFire zipfile and it seems to have worked!
Will get back with you if there is another problem.
Seems to be resolved, althought the TFServices.exe file is still on my system,
so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
May just have to ditch Spyware Doctor altogether if it returns.

Hm, just delete TFServices.exe altogether. Anyway, glad it's working - thanks for confirming.
