Download and install ASW Cleaner from Avast official website.

This tool is helpful in case if you fail to remove Avast antivirus from your desktop using the standard windows uninstallation utility. 

Don't hesitate to ask if the problem still persists.

Hello Earl

Unfortunately, it seems that Avast is not compatible with Windows 8. Even though if you search online, you will see that Avast is said to be compatible actually it is not.

The only solution in this case is to uninstall the Avast antivirus and install another Antivirus software.

In order for you to uninstall Avast, please access the link I have provided you with, which will guide you through the uninstall process.
