    Default Avast

    Hi
    My wife used Avast on her notebook. She uninstalled the program and tried to install MSE but on restarting, the computer did not work.

    could anyone tell me the proper procedure to uninstall avast and install MSE please? She is using a TOSHIBA notebook with Windows Vista. Tks

    Uninstall it using something like Ccleaner then do a reg scan with the same program see if that removes it fully

    I assume it's a legit version of Vista ... MSE wont work unless it is and has been verified.
    That being said ... +1 for Gary's suggestion.

    Hi Gary
    Your suggestion worked perfectly. Thank you
    Thank you to SP8's, JackM and Smurf

    problem now is that whenever computer is started, there is a popup from avast " License key is not entered".
    any suggestion how to get rid of it?

    That should have been removed when you did the reg scan with CCleaner ... Try jackM's uninstall utility ... seems a bit odd tho

    I would reinstall Avast and then use Revo Uninstaller on it, and ccleaner afterwards just in case.

    Avast offers options when you follow the Windows uninstall procedure. You might well take the time to take all the steps that Avast then takes you through. I did one this morning successfully and then installed MSE.
