Debug text-file?
« on: June 20, 2024, 07:09:51 PM »
Hi

Why do I get a gargantuan debug-file > 4GB in my AVAST installation folder? And more importantly, how to get rid of it and not appear again? Not the first time it showed up!!!


(I'm guessing maybe I have ticked something I shouldn't have :-[)

It's hard to even hazard a guess based on the lack of information.  My whole Avast Folder C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast is only 1.44 GB.

You don't give the file name or its location ?

You could set everything to default values AvastUI > Settings > General > Troubleshooting > Reset to default.
This however isn't without risk as any settings you had changed would be lost

Hi Money-Preparation,

is this related to Avast Secure Browser, please?

Cheers
