.ASWS File Extension
What is an ASWS file?
File used by Avast, an antivirus program for desktop computers; contains program display properties for colors, textures, scale, animation, transparency, and pop-ups; used for creating custom skin designs for Avast windows.
ASWS skins may be edited by renaming the ".asws" extension to ".skn", editing the renamed file with Softshape Development ActiveSkin, and re-saving the file with the ".asws" extension. Skins may be packaged into .ASWCS files using the SkinPacker ashSkPck.exe program included in the Avast installation.
NOTE: Skins are only used by Avast 4 and earlier.
