« on: November 04, 2013, 11:23:01 PM »

Hi! Just to clarify things! Do i need to run the avast! Cleanup Tool via http://www.rejzor.tk/ in normal mode, safe mode, or safe mode (with network)?

Oh thanks Alikhan! One of the previous post you mentioned run removal tool in safe mode? Yesterday about the CCleaner having a bug detecting I have Avast 6, i uninstalled avast 2014 via add/remove and then used the avast 9.0 uninstall utility in safe mode. After that and just to be on the safe side I used the Avast! Cleanup Tool in normal mode and then in safe mode (with network). Avast! Cleanup Tool doesn't work in safe mode, because it crashes!

So I should be fine with this?

Yes, it's fine. Aswclear and Avastclean need to be run in Safe mode. The Rejzor uninstall utility can only be run in normal mode. That being said.. you doing a clean install won't remove "Avast 6 or Avast 8" from CCleaner. That's a bug in CCleaner.
