It is only recently that this new policy came into effect that the Avast settings are now in the registry, the avast ini file is effectively the copy:
See this topic which explains the change

The WOW6432Node registry location is for 32bit use:
Hi Hried, there is almost same set of keys on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Avast Software\Avast too, is this a mirror or something else?
Hi NON, we mirror this so 32-bit components of 64-bit Avast (plugins to Outlook and 32-bit browsers) are able to easily get their settings (this is a key given to 32-bit applications on 64-bit Windows) and to support migrations of legacy 32-bit to 64-bit versions. Note that this is not a copy or duplicate; it is a registry symbolic link, a shortcut from this key to the one mentioned above. The values in registry are there only once.

We are going to remove this once we port to a new installer we're making, should be early next year.

The only reason I asked about the location was, I haven't needed for some considerable time so I no longer had it in my old avast5.ini file or the registry.
