OSX - Problem installing Avast after removing Sophos
« on: August 21, 2014, 11:34:28 PM »
Hi,

I have been running Sophos on my Macs for a while but after a spate of system crashes and lack of support from Sophos decided to uninstall and install Avast.  Trouble is despite removing Sophos and physically deleting any files from the system, Avast still reports that Sophos is still installed.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Problem solved.  Turns out simply uninstallling and rebooting wasn't enough.  Had to trawl through the filesystem, delete all references to sophos and reboot again...

If I do that, then I have a problem inserting code to post pictures etc.

OT:
Does the image tag not work for inserting images then ?

Code: [Select]
[img][/img]
That should work to display the images saved elsewhere.
