Best way to Install Avast 5
« on: January 20, 2010, 03:30:35 AM »
In my observation...


My 1st Attempt to install Avast 5 was unsuccessful.

This was my Protection Installed
Avast 4.8 uninstalled but didn't run the Uninstall Utility = Today
Avg uninstalled but didn't run the Uninstall Utility = This was installed last year before avast 4.8 installed
MBAM Pro = Today



So what ive done is 2nd installation is successful.

If you have previous Anti Virus its better to download their Uninstall Utility .

Avast 4.8 Uninstalled and Download Avast Uninstall Utility http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
Avg = I run also Uninstall Utility
MBAM = I Uninstalled also
Dunno if its ok to install Avast 5 in running the MBAM.

My advice if you have installed another Antivirus before Avast better Download their UNINSTALL UTILITY

In avast FAQ it is said that it will automatically detect Avast 5 in previous Avast 4.8

Now Im running fine and fully protected.

Note also after uninstalling and Removing Different Antivirus using UNINSTALL UTILITY

RESTART FIRST YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE INSTALLING AVAST 5.

I hope it helps to those who has problem.
