Avast trial removed. Cannot install other antivir

  Faser 23:01 31 Jan 2006

My CA E Trust antivirus was due for renewal.

I tried out Avast! 4 but decided to go back to CA.
Despite trying everything I know I cannot install as I get message to uninstall Avast.

The Ca antivirus offers to uninstall it for me but then cannot find the path.

I tried reinstalling Avast, searching registry and program files and system restore, no luck.

Ideas please as I have paid CA and only reloaded windows (xp) a couple pf months ago!

Sounds as if something's gone mildly pear shaped, try putting avast back and removing it with the avast uninstall utility click here

If that doesn't work try the avast forum click here

or if you have xp system restore to before you started experimenting?

Thanks for advice. Tried all sugestions, still not working!

Had a quick look at Avast forum, will post my own thread. Also have emailed CA for advice.

Untill I get a solution I have reinstalled Avast.
