Uninstall Safe Browser
« on: March 04, 2019, 08:21:35 PM »
I have Windows 7. I have tried to uninstall the Safe Browser without success. I have tried via the Control Panel and also downloaded the removal tool but nothing happens. It appears in the Processes section of Task Manager.

I would be grateful for any help.

Thanks.

bob3160's answer is here:  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=220296.msg1468939#msg1468939

Since the removal is done within the Avast program, I assume you're running an older version of Avast?  SafeZone Browser is old and obsolete and has been replaced by Avast Secure Browser.

It came as part of a recent upgrade of Free Avast. It is product version 72.0.1151.81

Thanks. That seems to have done the trick.

 I have Firefox and one of the Add-Ons is Avast Online Security (Avast Browser Security and Web Reputation Plugin), which is disabled. Is it OK to remove it?
