I downloaded the new product  "wise Anti-malware" on two of our computers and I cannot scan from either one, they both come up with "engine failed to start". Must I download them again to get a new engine?

After installation, when you first open Wise Anti Malware, you will see this window "Initialization engine... " it is downloading engine.

Did you see it?

Please open Wise Anti Malware folder, normally it is C:\Program Files\Wise\Wise Anti Malware\SavEngine\

Find this file avupdate.log and send it to us.

We want to put smile on your face.   :)
