If you updated from Avast 4 thru Avast 5 to Avast 6, on WinXP the install path will likely be C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5.  This far, I haven't done a full clean uninstall and reinstall and that's where my Avast install folder is.

Thanks Gopher John.
It's seems to be one of those glitches that for some reason the File Folder simply is not visible in Program Files Folder. All searches indicate that the Installation folder is located C:\Program Files\Avast Software\Avast however it's not visible.
Yes, back when I was on V.4 and possibley V.5 it would show up as C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast but then in V.6 I believe changed to "Avast Software".Oh well ;)
No worries all runs perfect,just strange not being visible.
Thnx again 8)
