We’ve covered about Avast WebRep module which shows safety ratings for websites and search results in Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. WebRep installs as a plug-in for Firefox and IE browsers with install of Avast 6.  If you’re already using WOT or Norton SiteAdvisor tools to know the reputation ratings for the sites and search results, you can uninstall WebRep plugins for IE and Firefox to stop Avast WebRep from showing the safety ratings.
