Hi:

 

Avast has a removal tool, you are supposed to run the tool in safe mode.

When avast was on my computer I ran the tool anyway and it removed Avast.

I am just sharing what I did.

In safee mode there is know speech.

Have a good day.

There is a registry patch for 7 and XP to have audio in safe mode, and I have heard that 10 gives audio in safe mode.
I have had a video error from Jaws in safe mode, but it still works for the basic things.

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!
No one has more to say than the woman who says she doesn't want to talk about it.

I had Avast years ago, and I don’t know if this has changed, but one used to have to go into safe mode in order to get it out.  I had to have sighted assistance.  I went to Best Buy, and they got it off, but have decided not to use it again, for that reason.

That’s wonderful if audio will kick in in safe mode.  I think I had Windows Vista when trying to remove Avast.  I would be afraid to get in safe mode and not be able to get back out again, but that’s just my lack of knowledge showing.

Hi.  Avast?  I wouldn't touch that puppy with a thousand-foot pole; Defender can do better and it's built in too.

Not really, it's what you get for not being careful during the installation process. Many sites or programs have some cost-deferral arrangements with commercial vendors to help defray costs of their programs, particularly free ones, so there are checkboxes by default that are checked on many download sites.

When you are going through the process, you need to verify that you only have the box checked for the program you want; otherwise, you will install unwanted programs like this anti-virus program, or google toolbars, etc.

JAWS does not recognize the check box in the standard CCleaner install dialog that causes Avast to be installed by default. Neither does Unchecky.?? The only sure way to prevent Avast from being installed along with CCleaner is to install the slim version of CCleaner, which does not come with any other unwanted software:

Is there a way to put in your registration information into the slim version? How do you get into the browser monitoring and tell it what to delete for what browser?

Hi Dennis,
 
I'm not going to be very exact, but maybe close!  LOL  First, I don't have a clue as how to register their Pro version, but I wouldn't waste my money on their Pro version.  When you're in Cleaner mode and you Tab to the, Windows screen, this is where the settings are for IE11, but when you Tab to the Windows screen, and right arrow to the, Applications screen, this is where you make the settings changes for any other browser.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Is there a way to put in your registration information into the slim version?  How do you get into the browser monitoring and tell it what to delete for what browser?

JAWS does not recognize the check box in the standard CCleaner install dialog that causes Avast to be installed by default. Neither does Unchecky.?? The only sure way to prevent Avast from being installed along with CCleaner is to install the slim version of CCleaner, which does not come with any other unwanted software:
