How to uninstalled the expired AVAST antivirus from my PC?


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

http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe

2) Double-click on the file ASWCLEAR and run it
3) You should see the following screen

avastuninstall.jpg

4) Click on the ellipsis and choose the folder where Avast is installed. This folder is usually in the Program Files directory. Ex. C:\Program Files\Avast

Be very careful which folder you choose since whatever folder is chosen will be completely deleted from your computer.

5) Once the uninstall has completed, reboot your computer. You may then try to reinstall it or another antivirus.

If for some reason the uninstall utility does not remove it, you may have to reinstall a newer version of Avast to then proceed to uninstall or you may have an issue where multiple antivirus programs are showing in the Windows Security Center.

Hope this help!

if you computer is very infected and you are not able to install the 2 antivirus i told, then do it on
another computer which is not infected. Then you will have to remove your hard disk from your computer and place it in the other one and do the scanning.
the USB antivirus is very useful you can install it in any computer you have it will protect you from autorun. it scan all usb and flash card also.

Avast also is a good antivirus which you can use.

i also suggest you to backup all your files, document, photos,etc.. after scanning. cause sometime you might get some error from windows. so backup and reinstall a fresh windows.

dont forget to reinstall the USB antivirus after.

GOODLUCK

Sir i have problem with virous on microsdcard .. . and some folders are not deleted plz tell any sollution


Download Avast anti virus and scan the card while it is in the card reader. If you tell Avast to scan the entire computer, it should include the drive with the card attached.

Here is a link to an Avast trial offer. http://www.avast.com/index?ClickID=dkcmb0s2sc0x2nttohrw0mmxcrcbrbcsnroy

Foldername.exe is created within every folder gtalk and yahoo messenger keep poppin up task manager disabled please help provide with a suitable tool thanx


Hello there!! 
The problem that you are facing is not uncommon especially in areas where large LAN servers are setup together or Net surfing is functional!! It is due to a generic host virus nicknamed as "NewFolder" Virus!! It makes new copies of every folder in the root\parent folder!! Also Your mrssenger Windows will pop up and spam e- messages will b sent to people in your freinds list!!
This is a Virus and can b removed with a good antivirus like Kaspersky or Bit defender!! Get a trial version from the net and update it (if you dont get a full version) .Run a full system scan Scanning the boot sectors also!! It should remove that virus!!
