    Wonder why it didn't offer me Avast then? Ah, who knows anymore? I switched from Avast when they bought AVG and want nothing more to do with them myself. Still it bothers me that Piriform would be doing this. Silly I know but........

    Considering Switching myself, but taking it a little slower, as been using Avast for like 10 years since 2006, maybe 11 years lost count now. Anyways it works pretty well for most part, not sure i'll stay with it after Fall Creators update, will see

    as for Ccleaner, the install dialog has changed since last version, so maybe it's the new Avast install way, who knows why some offered Avast and some not offered it


    Welcome Piriform to Avast!

    Not sure what link you followed or what you typed to get there, but that's just a PR splat for Avast buying Piriform, nothing else. The install "dialog" is the same as always, just uncheck what you do not want.

    Well that was just to inform Piriform was brought into be part of Avast, some see the extra addins to install along with Ccleaner and some don't see the extra ads in, I seen the screen on mine with to try the professional version, and install Chrome on one machine, others seen the Install Avast check mark option

    That shot in Post #8 is from the installer, not from the link to download.

    Back to my original question, can I safely just the delete that collection of avast leftovers. There's no ".exe" files in any of it. I really don't like doing the "avastclear" routine. Reminds me of my experiences with Norton.

    Well best way i'd think is using the avast removal tool in safe mode to be sure all removed properly, it may leave traces if you safely manually delete it

    Yes you can delete them.

    Or you could leave them - it doesn't matter either way.

    They are orphan entries that will not be looked at unless you install avast again.
