3-9-2017 La Verne Computer Club - La Verne, CA

Image A small but very interested group. After the presentation, I was able to help one of their members do a clean, custom install of Avast Free. She was running Window 7 and had a problem after the last update. A clean install fixed her problem.Since we had no internet access, it was a good thing that I also carry a usb device with all the tools I needed to complete the task. The only thing I could not do was to register the program since that requires internet access. One more satisfied Avast customer.
