How do I uninstall Cleanup
« on: August 25, 2018, 05:18:02 PM »
I have an active license, but I don't like most of the cleanup it wants to do. I've been right-click quitting cleanup, but it would be convenient if I could just uninstall it to get it out of the way.

That works for me.

The uninstall does end with a message:
Some elements could not be removed. These can be removed manually.

(Though it doesn't say anything about where to go look for the parts to remove -- I blame windows)

Hi,

we are sorry to see you go but we respect your decision so you can check the following folders whether there is anything left:

c:\Program Files (x86)\AVAST Software\Avast Cleanup\
c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\

You can safely remove everything there including the folders itself however it is a bit weird because usually our uinstaller is capable of removing everything there.

Regards.
