Is this anti virus or just spyware protection? don't i have to uninstall avast first?
No its a cloud anti malware. No need to uninstall Avast. No installation needed. just double click on the setup file to run it.

Hitman Pro didn't find it, but Malwarebyte found 1 threat so maybe it's been removed. =)

The reason you've started this thread would suggest otherwise wouldn't it.

That particular issue is a False positive on Malwarebytes part.
That reg. entry is harmless and can be safely ignored.

I'm not offended, just trying to figure out what you downloaded that it came with.

Could you quickly remove Avast and download and install NOD32 and then run a scan?
