Avast 7 uninstall setup fatal error


Hello Martha,

To resolve that issue, I will recommend the following steps.

  • First you will need to go to C:Program Files and try deleting the Avast folder completely from there. After that you can go to the control panel and then try uninstalling the antivirus again.
  • Otherwise you will need to use a third party application called Revo installer to remove Avast.
  • First, you will need to download the program Revo Uninstaller .
  • Install it, and then open it and look for  "Avast" in the list.
  • You will need to double click on it, and then choose Scan mode.
  • When you see a list of files and you will need to check the Avast files to be removed.

The error message “'C:Program FilesAVAST SoftwareAvastsetup".Setup cannot continue.” Indicates that the program you are trying to uninstall is running and so setup cannot continue. While uninstalling a program you need to quit all the functions of the respective program. So, at first stop functioning of Avast antivirus. For your better understanding Avast programming interface can modify the performance of supplementary programs running on your PC. It has no detectable window similar to other programs. So you need to take extra care while uninstalling the software. However, through Control Panel to Add/Remove Programs you can uninstall keeping in mind all the points mentioned above.           

I hope you understand it.
