[Resolved] 5.0.677 set-up file
« on: January 07, 2011, 05:21:55 PM »
How do I get rid of an old 5.0.677 set-up file? I recently switched to 5.1.874 and no longer need the old set-up file. I have used CCleaner and Advanced Registry Optimizer. The set-up file just won't leave. BTW 5.1.874 has survived at least two re-boots on my Acer laptop with no problems. And yes, I did a clean install.

As in the "setup_av_free.exe" file (or something similar - depending on language and product)

You can just delete it in the normal way. Once installed the setup file is not needed (unless you want to keep for another install)

Uh...this is embarrassing I figured it out. Can you say "duh"?
