In what moment did the mistake that you are getting appears? Before or after this text:

sudo sh uninstall.sh <ENTER>

I have the same issue. I installed AVAST in my Mac - OSX last night and then I cannot reboot my system. I tried to start up in single user mode and entered all the commands (provided by 'alyssaharn' and 'Francisco Velasco') to uninstall AVAST but system is giving error like "/tmp/avastuninstall <some number>: Read-Only file system"...I don't remember the exact error message as I'm at my work now.

It seems like I don't have permission to uninstall AVAST in single user mode. But why??

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks !

You forgot this part:
Code: [Select]
/sbin/mount -uw /In single-user mode the filesystem is mounted read-only by default (this mounts as read and write).

Then just do:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh /Library/Application\ Support/Avast/components/uninstall/com.avast.uninstall.app/Contents/MacOS/uninstall.sh
