Did you remember to stop on access protection before trying to uninstall?

Right click the Avast! a icon, bottom right corner of screen and select Stop On-Access Protection.

And make sure you have an alternative ready to install and uninstall re-install whilst off-line.

Having two anti virus is a very bad idea, you should always remove one before installing a replacement. Try deactivating both antivirus before running uninstall. If that doesnt work click here or click here may help.

you want to dispense with Avast in the first place. I've been running it on one of my own computers for some time, and as far as I'm concerned it's very good - it justs sits there and gets on with the job.

I'll be interested to hear about any problems you've had with it.

I agree with FE. why do you want rid of it?

I'm watching this one too. I have Avast and have been more than satisfied after e-mail problems with AVG.

Avast seems to work better for me than A.V.G did and it updates regularly by it's self and causes no problems with my e mail,It also took care of a virus that A.V.G could not.

I am watching this thread carefully.
