Password has changed on SBS 2003 Avast console so I cant log into Avast console. As per post that would mean I cant uninstall it either? Is there a registry key I can edit for the password or is there another fix? Does Avast have a password revealer specifically for this problem?

I don't think so.
But you can contact Avast here: http://www.avast.com/contacts

No there is no registry key for it since the password is stored in the database

in one of my postings i explain how to change that password without the console...
but be warned, its all on own risque!


and for the TS:  if you dont have admin rights then ask the administrator that installed your computer to uninstall Avast
