If avast finds it but cannot remove it, restart in Safe Mode and do a System Restore to a date before the problem began. when it restarts, start it in Safe Mode with Networking and run Malwarebytes (install and update if needed) and remove all it finds. Then open Avast, update it and run it also; remove all it finds. If both find and remove something, rerun Malwarebytes just to be sure. Restart in normal mode.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
