I can't uninstall Avast.
« on: April 09, 2012, 07:48:44 PM »
This is my first message.  I'm sorry if I sound anything but technical, but I have spent hours and hours trying to uninstall Avast(free) so I can install software that my internet provider is offering.  Even had the tech from IP try and he said Avast will have to do it.  How do I find someone who even cares?!

That doesn't speak well for the competency of the IP's technician.  :(
