|Hi, I got the avast uninstalled. Johnw had the link that did the job. Once I installed the program from avast, I ran it without being in Safe Mode. It reminded me that avast was set to a 'Self Protect Mode'. I found the checked box in (I think) Settings->Troubleshooting. Once unchecked, avast uninstalled, with the downloaded program, without being in Safe Mode. Unfortunately I forgot to check if avast found its way back into Add/Remove/Programs list before I did the deed. |
By the way Johnr, Malwarebytes found no issues.
Also Johnr, I went to the avast site as you suggested. I could not find the uninstaller. I even did a search on the site. So the link:
was useful but possibly unnecessary if you get avast out of its 'Self Protect Mode'.
This is just a suspicion as I did not fully test this idea.
Thanks Everyone! I consider this case closed!
