Add apps?
« on: March 26, 2014, 06:02:51 PM »
Hi there,

Been away for a while and am back.

I have few questions:

1. Is it possible to install Avast Free with out the pc fixer, some thing like that?

2. Why does the Avast( Free) display 59 days remaining, current status Registered?

Hoping to hear from you as always,

Thanks!

Choose custom install and untick everything that you dont need.

Avast is registered for 365 days, so you need to re-register every year.

Just uninstall from control panel, then run Avastclear: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe Cleanup Tool

If there is no folder in Programs just choose none, then run it and reboot.

Then you can install Avast again: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=147778.0 Avast Download

Be sure to choose custom and untick everything unneeded.

Its Tools > Grime Fighter.  Do I need to uninstall the whole Avast Free AV & custom reinstall?

Any Avast clean up tool before custom reinstall?

Thanks!

In the newest version you cannot untick things over repair.

Cleanup tool and Download of the newest version are in my last post.

And yes you need to use custom install and make sure to untick Chrome, Google Toolbar or Dropbox.

Go to remove programs and click on Avast then click uninstall, on the popup screen choose change and untick whatever you don't want - keep the 3 main shields on the left at minimum.

Yes that's the current version, choose custom install after running the exe file.

Gadget is desktop app to give notifications on avast status, not needed imo as there is already the tray app.

Untick it :)

Thanks craigb, what else is un required IYO, lie Grime Fighter etc, I have only checked browser protection, Software updater & secure line besides the 3 shields?

Does one need to run a Avast clean tool too before a reboot & running the exe?

Personally I don't use any of the extras other that Browser protection which can also have problems on some systems so if you get browser crashes or slow browsing speed then you can still disable or remove that feature.

GrimeFighter I wouldn't touch If I were you, it's not compatible with many computers so I would recommend doing a lot of reading up on the feature before even attempting it.

Clean tool is only needed if you are wanting to do a full clean install ( no leftovers ) or have problems removing avast.

Thanks again, where is the clean up tool & how does one run it?

Don't you have software updater checked or have PSI for that?
