Executing Avast interface via Run or CMD Prompt
« on: December 07, 2010, 04:50:10 PM »
I am using Avast free, version 5.0.667. Can anyone tell me how, if possible, to execute Avast via "Run" or CMD Prompt?

For executing Avast interface via CMD prompt if you have installed in the default folder type:
"C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\AvastUI.exe"
