What do you recommend as an to take the older version of Avast off with?  Just the windows uninstaller?  I don't see that Avast has a true uninstaller to take it off?  Thanks
Download new version first and save then delet current with add remove program's first then reboot into safe mode and run the uninstaller  http://public.avast.com/~forejt/aswClear.exe  scroll to your version and click, when its done then reboot, now install new version, http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=69152.0

@ Craigb
Best to use the official aswclear5.exe file.

find it here and save it to your HDD (it has uninstall tools for multiple avast products, 4.8 and 5.0, etc.)
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.11.2500 (build 21.11.6809.528) UI 1.0.683/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Yes but it is in a personal web space ~forejt rather than the official files location, http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe not to mention I normally point them to the http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility page as that gives the instructions also.

I don't see any sticky for that in the avast! Free/Pro/Suite forum.

I have no idea why that has been stickied as the OP has nothing to do with avast and is effectively posting a link gathered almost a year ago when avast 5 was released. At that point the original aswclear.exe was for only avast 4.8, that is why a special build was placed in forejt's web space.

So I have no idea if this has been kept up to date as it certainly hasn't followed the official file name change of aswClear5.exe either.

If that remains a sticky the link needs to be changed to the correct name and official download location, http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility.
