I think not, Chrome is an Standalone program.

Thanks Steven. The reason I ask is I tried using chrome search and I couldn't get on. Also, I have the avast free antivirus set-up icon on my desktop, can I use that again for the new install after removing this one?

Go to Avast.com and choose the version you want to install.

The Icon on the desktop can be removed.

Please use Avastclear to completely remove Avast from the computer: http://www.avast.com/de-de/uninstall-utility

I would also do this when version 2014 Final is out cause they made many changes (put real time shields together etc.)

OMG, you are not going to believe this, my date was incorrect, I happened to check it and it said 2025. I have NO IDEA how that even happened. All those horrible red X's are gone!!!! Thank you ALL for the help, I truly appreciate it. What could have made the year date change when I know I didn't do it?

I actually re-registered so now it's from today till next September, this won't cause a problem with the old registration will it?

Not at all.

I can really recommend you to upgrade to Avast 2014 when it is out. ;)

Go to Software Updater and Settings if you disabled it. If you just reinstalled Avast restart the computer, this is a known bug i think.

If you want automatic updates in background you have to purchase a license for Avast Premier.
