unistall without traces in the registry ?
Yes i think the false virus detection is very serious because you dodnt feel safe in your machine .Ans in some cases you need to delete wrong files .

All the keys that Windows allows to remove. Legacy drivers keys are blocked by Windows and it's Windows who will remove them later (or you, manually).

Follow the normal way (and use the Safe Mode only if the normal way fails).
So, Control Panel > Boot > avast uninstaller tool > Boot.

http://public.avast.com/~forejt/aswClear.exe

Hi,
I setup my system Avast but it give me an error. ( not load language dll ). and I want to uninstall it.

I dowloaded to asvClear on my system but it did not run.

"The avast! self protection module is enabled. For this reason, the operation cannot be completed.

To complete the operation, eitjer run this program from windows safe mode, or disable avast! self protection"

But My Avast run under XP. I am not use it.

What can I do?

It is self-explanatory, it is there to prevent malicious software from disabling avast (self-defence).

No, you don't have to do that to uninstall avast from the normal windows add remove programs. The uninstall utility is there if you can't uninstall avast from windows add remove programs.

In which case you run the uninstall utility from safe mode as is recommended in the page where you download the uninstall utility. Avast and many other programs don't run in safe mode (that is the whole point of safe mode) so that it is possible to do any troubleshooting, etc. that you may have and in this case run the uninstall utility 'if required.'

I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest avast! version and save it.
3. Uninstall avast from Control Panel (if possible). If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after that.
4. Run the avast! Uninstall Utility saved on 1. If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after you've run it.
5. Install avast! using the setup saved on 2. Boot.
6. Register your free copy or add the license key for Pro.
7. Check and post the results.

OK I have done all of this in my attempt to remove Avast 5 - yada yada yada!!

Avast does not appear in Control Panel list of Programs, but every time I boot up I get an error message:

"Windows cannot find: C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\AvastUI.exe" - probably because it is not now there!!

But how do I stop this message appearing at each boot up?

Running Win 7.

Follow step 3... If it fails, boot in Safe Mode and use the uninstall tool.
