[Tec Talk] Does anyone know how to remove Avast from your PC

                Hi Tim, removing that darned Avast is something we need sighted help for.  If you contact the Microsoft help desk they can do it for you.  There are some software’s that are just not compatible for blind users.

Good luck.  LAW

Hi Shirley,

Go to Google and type

Avast Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for Avast Removal

To download the Avast! Removal utility. That’s how I did it when I uninstalled it from my Windows 7.

Kind regards

Tim.

I seem to have remembered, I went to %appdata% to delete some left over files but, I think the last time I had to remove this was on 7!  Some one can correct me if this is not true anymore! Cheers Heather

Hi Shirley,

I am not sure about other operating systems, but with Windows 10, I went to programs and features and used the uninstall feature for Avast.  It is not too accessible, but I believe if you run the uninstall from programs and features, if you press enter on one of the inaccessible buttons, the rest is automated and the uninstall completes.  Give that a try and see what happens.
