Hi there! just follow the steps for you to uninstall the program :)
1.Click the "Start" button located on the bottom left of the task bar of your computer.
2.Scroll to "Control Panel" and click on it.
3.Click on the "Uninstall a Program" link under programs from the list of control menus or features that are displayed in the window.
4.Scroll down to "Avast Antivirus" from the list of programs that open and click on it. Click on the pop-up that says "Uninstall/Change." Depending on the version of "Avast Antivirus" that is installed on your PC, different operations such as "Modify, Remove or Repair" are displayed.
5.Click "Remove" and then "OK." Removing the Avast antivirus program will take a few minutes.
Normal UninstallThe first thing you want to try is to locate Avast in the Add/Remove Control Panel and try to remove it from there. Follow these instructions to accomplish this.
1) Click on Start, Control Panel 2) Open Add/Remove Programs 3) Find Avast in the Programs list and highlight it 4) Click Remove and follow the prompts to uninstall Avast
Using the Avast Uninstall UtilityIf for some reason the normal uninstall does not work, you may have to download Avast's own Uninstall Utility.
1) Click on the following link and download the Avast Uninstall Utility to your desktop
First.. install a different antivirus program while you are fixing this installation. Try microsoft security essentials or AVG.
Check your program files folder for any mention of Avast, and delete it.
Run a search for avast and delete anything you find.
Download a registry cleaner, I use CC Cleaner.
Run the cleaner and remove all the files it finds, run the registry cleaner and let it delete all the problems it finds .
IF you want to try with avast again, uninstall the other antivirus program you may have installed. then try with the Avast again
You got a virus that designed to disable Norton. Do yourself a favour, uninstall Norton. Here a link to an excellent free piece of software for home users. Download it, install it, update it, schedule a boot-time scan, you wil be amazed by just how much it finds & it wont slow your system by being too labour intensive like symantec. http://www.avast.com/
i had the same problem, and uninstalled it as well. Do you need help uninstalling? you would need to go to *Start menu-->control panel-->add/remove programs: the list should contain all the programs installed on your system. as well in your start menu, under the folder of the programs list their may be an uninstall program. either way will work. I use Avast!! myself it works great and it's free!!!
