Cannot Install
« on: July 04, 2011, 12:41:06 AM »
Hello,

I've recently moved from Win 7 to Win XP 64 and I'm having trouble reinstalling Avast. I've used the cleaner program too and I've uninstalled/reinstalled several times

Here is the log. Any suggestions would be welome.

Did you follow the instructions to the letter.
See; http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
1) download the latest version of avast and save it to your HDD  http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=80315.msg658226#msg658226
2) download and save the above uninstaller
3) boot into "safe mode" and run uninstaller for each version of avast!
4) boot into normal mode
5) use CCleaner  http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
6) install the avast version you saved to HDD

Also uninstall any other anti-virus installed on your machine.
Hope this helps.  :)

Hey Para-Noid

Didn't want you to think I had ignored you. A short while after (due to other problems) I reinstalled windows and Avast is running fine.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
