Avast! free v 8.0.1483 and Avast free v 6
« on: April 13, 2013, 04:58:48 AM »
Hi,

I am a longtime Avast! free user and have a problem.

I use CCleaner and have noticed for a while that I have a box in it for Avast 6 as well as for Avast 8 which I currently have.  When ticked the very same stuff comes up to be erased.  When I do that, next day they are there again. 

Questions:  Are these remnants from Avast! free version 6 that weren't removed?  If so, how do I remove them because after version 6, I had v 7 and now 8. 

I will be trying to attach a pic of what CCleaner sees as version 6. 
Seems the pic is not working so I will type out the info.

Utilities Avast! Antivirus 6

C:\ProgramData\Avast Software\Avast\log\aswAr.log
same as above  except \log\Chest.log
same as above except  \log\EventLog.log
same as above except  \log\Htm|RemoteContent.log
same as above except  \log\Resident.log
same as above except  \log\Setup.log
same as above except  \log\usntr.log

Found out how to upload the pic.  The above is shown in CCleaner about Avast! free version 6.  Is anyone able to help me?  Thanks!

Best to untick the avast boxes from CCleaners applications list, avast does it's own house keeping periodically.

Thank you so much Asyn and craigb for your explanations.  I will now untick the Avast 6 and 8 boxes in CCleaner.

Found this thread in CCleaner's forum about the very same thing.  http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=38359  Maybe of help to anyone who experiences same as I did.
