Title: Problems downgrading to avast 6
Post by: abhi95sinha on June 09, 2012, 04:23:12 AM
Hello there guys!! Yesterday and even today, I tried downgrading from avast 7 to avast 6 because the 7 version did quite slow down my PC processes. But when I tried to install avast 6, it gave a pop-up message showing this :-

" You are trying to use an older version of avast! setup. Instead of using the package stored in this file, the installer will download and us the latest setup from the Internet."

After this, a new window popped up trying to download the latest version and I cancelled it from doing so. After that, it presented an error saying that download was unsuccessful and a log file which had the following Info:-
