Can I revert back to Avast 6?
« on: February 24, 2012, 03:27:04 PM »
I downloaded Avast 7 last night and have just found out that I'm affected by the current Avast/Comodo Firewall compatability issue. Is there any way for me to revert back to version 6?

Just do a clean install of v6.0.xxx  :)
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

What about disabling comodo's defence+ and sandbox, then delet avast from comodo and allow it to be recreated.

There's no trouble with Defense+ or Sandbox. The problem is that Web Shield is bypassing my Firewall settings and allowing programs that I've blocked in Comodo to access the internet.

I wanted to revert back to 6 until either Comodo or Avast offers a fix, but CNET is now only offering version 7 so I don't know where to obtain a clean install of version 6.

Excellent.  Just what I wanted too!

Edit: Damn, I need Internet Security Suite.

Thanks Craigb :) Comodo seems to be working again now. Think I'll wait until the bugs have been ironed out before trying Avast 7 again.
