Avast Version 6.0.1367 Free
« on: May 28, 2012, 02:50:41 PM »
Hello! I want to use Avast Version 6.0.1367 free but I can't! When I do find it online and download it the install goes into mode which I can't stop and the file turns into Avast 7! This is very stupid! I'm very disappointed by Avast! Why I want to use Avast Version 6.0.1367? Because I use Comodo firewall another area where Avast let many ppl down. Stop pointing fingers at Comodo it's Avast fault and they don't want to take responsibility for it. Also as you know Avast 7 had a wide range of issues. Anyway how can I use Avast Version 6.0.1367? Impossible? Why I don't have a choice? Not a very happy customer here...

It's not a good idea to downgrade... Anyway, I suggest an installation from the scratch:

1. Uninstall avast from Control Panel first.
2. Boot.
3. Use Avast Uninstall for complete uninstallation.
4. Boot.
5. Stay off-line (not connected to Internet)
6. Install again the old version: http://filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/ or http://www.oldapps.com/avast_antivirus.php?old_avast=6918
7. Boot.
8. Register avast (insert the registration key).
9. Uncheck the programs updates (set to manual).
10. Only then connect to Internet (go on-line).
11. Check and post the results.

No Tech.

 He does not want Avast! 7 because its web shield does not allow Comodo firewall outbound traffic blocking if ran under Windows 7.

What about installing Avast! 6 off line. What I mean is to disconect from the web while it is installed then set Avast! 6 for manual update and cancel pop ups alerts.

Thank you very much guys. Well I tried to stay offline and got the files again. NO AVAST files on my PC at all during install. And still it show the same mode that intsall failed and I need to download new files to get Avast 7! I mean what the hell? How is this possible? Maybe this mode to upgrade is already in all old files? :o

I got the files online after which I pulled the cable off and had no internet access. My bad incorrect sentence. Comodo AV is disabled during install. I switch it off. It has nothing to do with the Avast files and does not block it in any way.

I will drop it once I install Avast. There is no point if I can't install Avast and have no AV at all. I already tried droping Comodo AV before no good installing it again after Avast fails each time.
