I am trying to install Mcafee security but get the message "unable to install because of Avast security" please remove program and try again. I am unable to find Avast in programs and have tried using the Avast Uninstall Tool but to no avail. Running windows vista

Have you tried Revo Uninstaller?Its in there.

Run the uninstaller tool again in safe mode. I assume you've searched for the latest one. Once run it will return to normal mode. Run Ccleaner and its registry cleaner.

Under file explorer (windows explorer) search for Avast and delete any folders found. Remove from recycle bin and reboot.

I would suggest not to use Revo uninstaller on any security software as it can leave registry issues. That is only my opinion though.
