Hi,

My Avast Antivirus will not run any scans and i tried to download a new version but it won't let me install it either. The icon is in my system tray and it tells me that my system is secured. I cannot even uninstall the program. Please help

you can use this to uninstall it

Download and install Revo Uninstaller
  • Double click the Revo Uninstaller icon on your desktop to start the program
  • Scroll through the listed programs and Right Click on the program you wish to uninstall
  • From the pop out menu choose Uninstall
  • Click Yes to the confirmation dialogue
  • In the next window select the Advanced mode
  • Click Next to start uninstalling the program
  • Answer Yes to confirm the uninstall
  • When the program has completed the four steps, click Next to allow the program to search for leftovers
  • Once complete, click Next, then Finish
  • Repeat the above steps for any other programs you wish to remove.


Then install it and see if it works now
