As Asyn has stated you "need" to completely uninstall Comodo anti-virus "before" installing avast.
Having two resident av's is not wise. see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic260844.html/page__p__1441638#entry1441638  :)
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.

Hi Seany0007,

Your failure at step 6 is due to Comodo a/v being installed whilst you attempt to install Avast!

No way around it.  Can't do.  It doesn't matter if real-time protection is turned off in Comodo.

Your system is telling you can't.  Nothing I or you or anyone else can do about that.

Either keep Comodo or Avast.  Install a/v offline will ensure your system is protected from the get-go when you first go online.

If you want to keep avast version 6, you can, but you first must disable automatic updates to do so.

That's not true as I already got rid of Comodo AV and Avast still fails. So no it's not the case.

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.
Sorry, it wasn't clear you've uninstalled COMODO antivirus before trying to install avast!

Need to point out every member helping you is a member just like you.  Except for Tech, iroc9555(?),  there have been no representatives here from the actual avast team that have spoken to you.

Since COMODO antivirus comes with the COMODO Internet Security suite, it may be necessary to completely uninstall CIS to get avast to install once again.  This is one step I've not seen you take.  Yes, I am aware COMODO a/v is an optional install as I chose to keep only the firewall and not put the a/v in.  If you look at my sig below, you will see I do not now have COMODO CIS.

Not clear yet whether you are using a free version of CIS ATM.

Using the uninstall tool would be best even if you have already uninstalled COMODO a/v.  I would put it back in to get the download listed below, though.  Or use another computer to get the files I needed. 

Obviously, you've got to be offline when you uninstall/install.

Tool for uninstalling CIS here:  https://forums.comodo.com/install-setup-configuration-help-cis/uninstaller-tool-for-comodo-products-t71897.0.html  (latest version)  Read the thread first to know what is involved.

Seany007.

Have you, at any time, had Avast! 7 installed prior to Avast! 6 ? Just a thought. If you did, and have not ran aswclear.exe in safe mode, maybe some files in Avast! 6 detect Avast! 7 and eventhough you are off line, it asks you to upgrade Avast!. That is the only plausible explanation I see for Avast! 6 to ask upgrade.

I am having the same behavior while trying to fall back from ver7 (way too buggy). Ver 1.0.1367 was fine... everything worked.   I don't have any other AV product on my system.  I had ver 7 and had ver 6 prior to ver 7.   The AIS 6.0.1367 install refuses to instal 1367 and insists on downloading and installing ver 7.  I fell back to 6.0.1125 version and it did install but now Win 7 action center is saying I don't have a malware, virus or firewall product installed. The 1367 install still has the same problem even with the Ethernet adapter disabled.

When I did a Virus definition/engine update under 6.0.1125...  after it updated it reported that I was on 7.0.1426.  This is completely wrong.  I have all ver 6 screens and features.   

The only new info based on the previous posts is that I did NOT run awsclear in SAFE Mode just is normal windows mode.  Somewhere in the registry or leftover file there is 7.0.1426 version number.

Please... any help will be appreciated.  I ran AIS for a year and a half or more with no problems after dumping a buggy ZoneAlarm Extreme Internet  Security release.   I don't want to have to find yet another security package.
