How To Uninstall Avast Antivirus From The System


Avast antivirus is a security application that, when installed, makes system-wide changes to the operating system. Since it modifies the system when installed, it will require you to restart the computer once installed to apply the changes or for the changes to take effect. Because of this, uninstalling the application will also require you to restart the computer.

The perfect way to remove applications like this is to use Revo Uninstaller. Go to Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware then download and install the free version. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select Avast antivirus among the applications. Next, click “Uninstall” then follow the instructions to completely remove everything the program created on your computer.

After clicking “Uninstall”, Revo will first perform the normal uninstall process by running the uninstall program of the application. Since Avast is a security program, it will require you to restart the computer to complete the uninstall process but Revo will not allow you to do that. When Avast prompts you to restart the computer, click either “Yes” or “No”.

In Revo, click “Scan” to scan your computer for leftover files, folders, and registry entries. When it is finished scanning, click “Select all” then “Delete” to delete all leftovers. Once Revo is finished, close the program and restart the computer. And that’s it.
