Backing up your Avant Browser settings - MysteryFCM

The main Avant Browser settings are held in a file called abrowser.ini . The settings for your ad blocker, pop up blocker and quick searches are also in this folder, if you have customized these, you might want to back them up also. These are the one's you should concern yourself with when backing up settings.To back them up, copy the file to a folder of your choice (or do as I do and put it into a
".zip" file).

In most cases, the file will be located in the following paths;

Windows 95/98/98SE/ME

\Windows\Application Data\Avant Browser

Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003

\Documents and Settings\<Your Username>\Application Data\Avant Browser

Note By default, the Application Data folder has it's hidden attribute set to true. If you cannot see this folder, open a random folder and click Tools then Folder Options and click the View tab, in there is an option to "Show all files and folders" (wording may differ depending on your version of Windows).
