You wouldnt think that a few files from internet explorer would affect windows explorer but its true. Good find and good work. :)

So, I finally found out what it is. Windows Search. Which is really strange, since it doesn't seem to have anything to do with Avast.
If you are 100% certain is that then maybe Nuhi could that to its notes. I wonder if its needed for avast on windows 7. It could be just 1 or 2 files that avast needs rather than the whole thing.

Update: I can disable Windows Search in the "Features" section, I can disable the Windows Search service and Avast would still run fine. Only when I remove it would Avast stop working.

Removing Windows Search but keeping Shell search doesn't work?

As I found with Dragon, it seems that some software needs certain components during install. But once installed, they work okay without the component.

As far as I'm concerned, no it doesn't work even when I keep shell search.

This is not the case here. Even if I successfully installed Avast and had the UI loaded up nicely, live removal of windows search would still break the program.

Thats good to know cos windows search sucks monkey balls. I use Everything by voidtools, its on the Interesting Things page. Most likely avast is reliant on 1 or 2 files from search, it wouldnt take too long to find which ones.

@kicksnarehihat, thanks for your report, will check Avast+Search removal issue and fix if possible, or add a warning if permanent.
As for other package maintenance issues, since you kept WU compatibility it should work so I'll review and report back.
