Registry entries of Avast!
« on: February 27, 2011, 09:05:19 AM »
Is there a web page available stating all the registry entries made by Avast! AIS?

I like to clean up my registry of all entries made for a "real" clean install of my licensed AIS6 or AIS5 for that matter (my subscription end somewhere in 2013).
I noticed entries remaining in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CurrentControlSet\Emun\Root\LEGACY_* being left behind.

Maybe I get a working CCC.exe again on the now on and off working Catalyst Control Center of my AMD vga-cards.
OS's used: Windows 10 Pro (x64) 1607 <-> Windows 7 Ult (x64) <-> Windows 8.1 Ult (x64) <-> Windows 2012 Essentials R2 (x64)
Avast Internet Security (sub for 10 PC's), HPM.Alert, Malwarebytes, Asus-x99 Deluxe/U3.1 (Intel Core i7 X980 EE - 64Gb Ram - NVidia Geforce x980 - Samsung PCI-e 950Pro 512 SSD), Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (6th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU - 16Gb Ram - 512 SSD)
When installing Avast! be sure to use the custom install... never the default!

Those "legacy" keys are made by Windows itself - and Windows also removes them (after a while).

Deleted the Legacy-Keys succesfully with "regedt32.exe" before I made a clean install of version 6.
Then you can change the user-rights for these keys an delete them directly. ;)

I never saw this behavior... Legacy keys are kept forever in all my personal experiences...
