Interesting as you haven't reported any problem in this topic.

Remove step 2 it is totally unnecessary and something I wouldn't recommend using for security applications.

I put Revo uninstaller in it due to when I tried it without it, it didn't show the webrep.

I've managed to fix it.

1. Download Avast
2. Uninstall it with Revo Uninstaller
3. Use the uninstall utility for all versions you have installed in safe mode (important)
4. Delete the Avast folder from the Program Data folder. You might need to unhide/known file types
5. Then reinstall Avast.

That finally fixed it for me on my laptop.

Unfortunately that didn't fix it either. But thanks for the suggestion.

Are you sure that you Avast setup file is not corrupted? Maybe try downloading it from a different website?

I've used a couple different downloads.  I guess if could be a FF issue, but I would think it would avasts job to get avast inserted and working properly--and I've reinstalled FF to no avail.  All other plugins do just fine.

No, it is only compatible with IE, Firefox and Chrome.
