Avast puts temp files in the wrong C:\ Users folder
« on: February 23, 2017, 04:17:47 AM »
Hello,

I'm having a small issue with my Avast Free 12.3.2280. I first installed it when my Windows 10 username was Bear, but I have since renamed the folder in C:\Users to Box and changed a registry value so that almost every program I have installed recognizes "Box" as my User folder. Avast doesn't, and reinstalling and restarting hasn't helped. Here is the path:

C: -> Users -> Bear -> AppData (only folder) -> Local (only folder) -> Temp (only folder) -> avastBCLTMP (only folder) -> chrome, edge, SafeZone

How do I change this? What registry value must I change? Any help would be appreciated.

You are using a old version of avast and you are not using the beta where this forum is meant for.
Please post in the correct forum.
