Dont have time to do that pal. need extra time to do that and prbxxx.tmp files created after 1 or 2 days not appear right away after installed.
Clean install avast, download from the web, created new user account, refresh windows, reinstall windows.
man, enough about that. 9 years i used avast, never once i experience this problem.

Hi Gufron,

Run CCLEANER daily until the fix in 19.2 to stop the creation of the prbxxxx.tmp files appears?

The app* files have been handled via VPS, but prb* files require a program update.
A fix will be included in 19.2, there's no update for 19.1.

Thank you

the fix will be released in  19.2 version which will come soon. (It is already available in beta)
Will the update remove the prb tmp files ? I volunteer with a silver surfers club and have been getting people to use Avast. Unfortunately a lot of the members will not know how to remove the tmp files. I can, of course, create a simple batch file or use CCleaner but would 'prefer' if the update did it automatically.
Thanks

@YeOldeBowler: yes, 19.2 version will automatically remove all these prb*.tmp files from TEMP folder.
