Uninstall?
« on: December 15, 2008, 08:29:45 AM »
Hi there,

How can one uninstall Avast totally from the machine including registry keys, files etc, to install a newer version of Avast or any other AV software, as if it was never installed in the first place?

Does Avast has any Removal tool utility?

Thanks.
OS: W7 Pro 32bit.

You can uninstall it from the usual place - Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs.
And, there is certainly no need to uninstall avast! before installing a new avast! version.

Ok thanks for clarifying.

I read members having issues with updating to a newer version?

I know some have had problems updating to a new version, but I or none of the other systems I take care of have.
