I’ve been validating official uninstall utility for quite a while and decided it is finally doing a good enough job that there is no need to provide an updated version of my tool for the new avast! 2015. There will be no avast! Cleanup Tool update for version 2015. Please use avast!’s official utility and do not use my tool for 2015 and later versions because it will not clean things properly and entirely. You can still use my tool for older versions if you still happen to use them.
avast! Cleanup Tool is a small program that will clean the remaining registry entries and files still left behind by avast! Antivirus uninstaller.
Use official avast! Uninstall Utility whenever possible:
However, when everything else fails and you really need to start from scratch, use my tool as it will remove everything related to avast!. Make sure you don’t have other avast! programs installed as it will remove them as well!
Due to nature and behavior of this tool, certain security programs may detect it as malicious/suspicious! Make sure to exclude it from such programs before using it.
Package has to be a SFX self-extracting, self-executing archive stuffed with BAT and EXE files for easier usage and in order to ask for administrator rights. If anyone questions my honesty, feel free to unpack this package using WinRAR or 7zip and inspect its contents!
