Help I cant remove Avast
« on: May 27, 2004, 03:51:32 PM »
Hello

I have a problem removing AVAST from my Windows XP.

I go to the add/remove programs and click add/remov the AVAST antivirus and the window just flashes and nothing happens

I have NO trouble removing other programs.

My version is 4.1-304

Please help

The version you are trying to remove is an older version, you may want to download the latest version and try that if there was a problem with your current version.

If you are determinet to get rid of the avast installation a visit to RejZors site at http://www.security-ops.tk/ and download the avast! External Control, a small executable tool to access certain functions within avast. There is a brutal Uninstall tool in there that should do the trick.

Since you have made attempts to uninstall already this may not work I don't know, as Artras, said you may need to reinstall first.

Thanks,

reinstalling the Avast helped.

We had a new policy at work so I have to use my work approved internet security and Avast is not on the list.

Perhaps you could suggest it, I'm sure one of the Alwil team would be happy to talk  ;D
