the update that showed up today for the free ver. totally messed up the computer. had to bulk restore the HD. couldn't even get rid of avast in safe mode.  it was constantly rebooting and saying it recovered from a serious error etc.

you can use the v8 removal tool first: www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

and then try a clean install..

Thanks!  I will try that....IF.....I try to install it.  I'm still a bit shell shocked after the catastrophe that occurred last night.  it cost me 2 weeks of stuff since the last HD backup. a major pain  :-[
