"Cleaning" AVG Apps?

Recommended Posts

Is it OK to let CCleaner "clean" AVG and/or Grisoft apps?

I have been letting CCleaner clean it since day 1.

No problems here. WinXP Pro Sp2 and SP3.

AVG 7.5

P.S. Also been CCleaning Avast 4 anti-virus with it also.

To get it to clean AVG 7.5 and AVG 8.0 and Avast 4 you need to get the winapp2. ini file and unzip it in your C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder .

Get the winapp2.ini from here at the bottom of the first post.

It's safe to allow CCleaner to clean AVG. It's also safe to cleanse AntiVir too!


At one point someone asked pretty much the same question, and someone else responded with a link to a thread on the AVG Free Forums where one of their mods had stated to use CCleaner to cleanup after AVG's updates, etc.


Before the public release of CCleaner I was cleaning up after AVG with a batch file for years, and never broken anything.

Pretty much assumed that it was safe to clean . . . but just wanted to check. Thanks.


By the way, I've had winapp2.ini installed for quite a long time.
