Sorry Tech but it is the avast4.mdb file that is meant to be saved
This is the old ODBC storage method, I suppose.
There isn't a mdb file in avast\data folder anymore.
Not in my Vista, not in XP...
Your file seems and old remain of avast, look the date.

I have it is in the image that I posted and acknowledged as 14/4/2006 and I thought it migh be a throwback to an earlier version.

However, I don't see why it is still there there have been several program updates and I have taken part in the betas as well so I would have though the avast program updates would have cleaned up the debris.

Thank you for your focus the question  :)

I download avast program from official website in september 8th 2007 after a new program update.

Please browse my photograph.

My operation system is windows xp home edition.By the way, i think avast is very nice ,just only small questions in compatibility. I believe avast will adapt to here when it enter into CHINA. :)

Your image looks fine, I believe the issue about avast4.mdb is a remnant of a previous version of avast. So your backup files would be avast4.ini and avast4.db before any reinstall.
