Last week I "upgraded" to Avantgo 4.2 on my Treo 180. Following a wireless sync of Avantgo, a hotsync with my desktop caused a software restore - everything in my back up folder was reinstalled.

After spending 6 hours yesterday trying to deal with this, I found a "fixer" file on the markspace.com website. Install the file, and the forced restores stop.

Markspace has let Avantgo know about the bug. While we wail for an update, grab the fixer at:

Good Luck!
