avast and media sharing

Postby jeffrey » Wed Dec 15, 2010 1:28 am

hi you recently helped me clean my computer from a virus and it is working great except that now that I am using Avast I cannot get my media sharing to work with my xbox 360. do you know what to do. I also recently started using winpatrol too. could either of these be blocking it or is it something else. I tried clicking share media in the palyer and it does until I go back to check it and it is unclicked again everytime.

Check the Avast 'Realtime' shields, see if they have settings there. Also check in the 'Settings' on the main GUI

didnt do anything. I tried turning off and on a few settings but when I open up windows media player and go to library and click share files when I go back to it to check it it is unclicked everytime. I just recently added avast, winpatrol and tuneuputilities since it was working a week or so ago. those are the changes I made recently unless I just need to reinstall windows media player? not sure what is blocking it. I am able to connect online with my xbox and wii so it is not with the router. something with the networking

Have you tried another media player? Reinstalling WMP is ok to try as well.

The one here, The KM Player,:

And Media Player Classic:

I've used both at some point or another with no problems.
