Thread: What if I didn't upgrade? ZA 9.2 and Avast 5 --> Success

    Happy ending to the story of the boy who was afraid to upgrade. It worked! I now have the latest version of ZA Free installed and running on my computer.

    For the benefit of users who may be facing the prospect of uninstallation-upgrade with some hesitation, let me recap how it happened.

    Closely adhering to all instructions and advice available in the forum:

    - I first created a Restore Point and a full backup.
    - I downloaded the removal tool and ZA 9.2 using Internet Explorer.
    - I disabled "load at startup" in the old version and restarted the computer.
    - I ran the removal tool. It seems to me there's a restart at the end of it.
    - I ran the installation of the new version.

    Twenty-four hours later everything works fine. There appear to be no conflicts or hang ups.

    I stress that I pulled it off with Windows XP-MCE and Avast Antivirus 5.

    Thank you Fax and GeorgeV for holding my hand on this.

    Best regards.

    You're welcome and thank you very much for taking the time to report back your upgrade experience.

    I have edited your post to remove spaces and make it more readable. I will revise title to mirror the results of the process.
