Avant not opening, not uninstalling.

For some reason my Avant browser would not open yesterday, neither by desktop icon nor in the programme list. I attempted to uninstall so that I could revert to the previous version but it would not uninstall, neither from the Avant uninstall nor the Add/Remove. The uninstall progress box opened but stuck at the first green blob on the progress bar.

This is the second time I have had a problem with this build or version (see post 24 th Jan 09) and am not satisfied with it. It is also slower to load than my previous versions.

Please inform how I may uninstall and direct me to the previous version.

When I booted my PC this morning I clicked on the Avant desktop icon from habit and it opened (as you can see).

I am not very computer literate so would appreciate answer to be as non-tech as possible.

Check Avant is not running in Task Manager prior to uninstall.
Revo Uninstaller is good freeware for thorough uninstallation of programs.
Old versions can be accessed from this thread... ... 39&t=13185

Suggest you to redownload Avant Browser from ... bsetup.exe. We had a silent update with some changes.
