    Hey guys.. my lappy crashed.. and aparently corrupted my avgssff.dll file, which is what runs the safe search thing for the avg firefox toolbar.. and i couldn't launch firefox without deleting this file.. which was obviously the source of the problem. now the problem is, i really like the thing and would like to get it functional without having to reinstall avg, and of course for that, i'd need the uncorrupted dll file. couldn't find the file @ dll-files.com so i was wonderinf if one you could lend me your file?

    its located in:

    Program Files\AVG\AVG8\Firefox\Components

    and its called avgssff.dll

    -thanks

    ok I am in process of installing AVG8 on the secondary...will see if it is there!

    My fault the free version still registers as 7.5. Most likely wont be of any use !?!

    i can give it a try avg8 will probably update the file after detecting its outdated anyway, if it is outdated at all, it might just be the same file.

    its alright, my dad paid a good amount of money for avg, and i've trist nod32, norton, & avast, kaspersky, etc. and i've always ended up back with a combo of avg paid/zonealarm paid/spybot/adaware free.
