Fixing a corrupted conf.ini file (Avant Tip) - Sergei

The main Avant Browser settings are held in a file called conf.ini (abrowser.ini for those using versions 9.x and below). To fix this file, close Avant Browser and locate the 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

Once found, delete this file. A new copy will be created the next time you start 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).
