Hello All

Asked in a unnamed forum,  on Tempoary internet Files missing,  A lot there said Dump Avast, do a clean install, and your PC will be fixed, so I did
((Current Protection Windows Defender)))


Yes or No should I reinstall Avast on my 2 Most used gaming systems
(Desktop and Laptop)

Will Temporary Internet Files location goes missing again if I choose to?

Thank you all in advance

*Definitely don't want the problem back and break Edge and other applications again so very nervous on reinstalling **

I use the free version of Avast and can't share your concerns.
Also don't know what temp. files you are talking about and, what you used to make them vanish.
These are  your computers and ultimately it will be your decision.
I'm happy with mine.

Yeah Happy with it now it appears,  the folder location seems to be sticking,  not sure what messed it up in the past at all, but hopefully all is fine now, and happy with computer performance and can enjoy my games, and other tasks again
