Re: how to remove avast

The Avast removal tool used to be accessible, but the last 2 times I tried to use it, it didn't work like it did in the past.  I needed for my wife to do the removal for me.  Below are the steps for when it was accessible if you want to try them.  Read the steps thoroughly first.  Also, below is the direct download link for the tool.
 
 
1. Press enter on the, AvastClear, .EXE file.
2. You will get the following message:
 
Avast Antivirus Clear
It is recommended to run this tool from Windows Safe Mode.
Do you want to do that?
Press "Yes" to reboot into Safe Mode now and run this tool
from there.
Press "No" to continue running this tool as it is (not
recommended).
Yes No
3. Tab to the, No button, & press enter or spacebar.  Now press the spacebar on the, Uninstall button, to start the uninstall process as Administrator.  After Avast is uninstalled you should get a prompt to restart the computer.  When the computer reboots you can check to see if any remnants of the program are left behind.  The 1 time I used this removal tool the only remnant I found left behind was an Avast folder in the Program Files, & Program Data folders on the root of the C drive, but I did not check the registry.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
