Removing the traces of previous antivirus?


#1

when I install KASPERSKY,it gives the message that traces of avast is found on your computer and setup finishes!!!

i have unistalled long ago!!!what should i do???


#2

thats what i did.

for XP..i am assuming you have windows on C: drive. 1st of all go to my computer then tools then folder options then view and enable "show hidden files and folders" THEN

go to C: then Documents and settings, then [username] then application data find the avast folder(s) and delete it .

(just to make sure)also go to c:__documents and settings__[username]__local settings__application data and then find a folder named avast and delete it.

it will solve your problem but somehow if it don't then (in addition to above method) download/install a software called regcure and run it and fix the problems.

you got 2 antivirus software running at the same time, it doesn't matter if you temp. disabled the one. uninstall kaspersky, nod32 is much better. much much better. i used to have kaspersky but now i also have nod32. version 3.xxx
