@ Donovansrb10,
Don't you know you can't argue with some one who states the following:
                "im a malware killer"

It's useless, he knows it all, even has more knowledge than essexboy.

Let the Mods take care of him. Maybe he'll listen to on of them.  :)

Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
Boot in Safe Mode and run it from there pointing to version 6.
Boot and reinstall the new public beta version.
