Download the uninstall utility from here. Open the utility and select OK or Yes all the way through the process.

How are you trying to delete avast ?

It should be able to be removed in the normal control panel - Add Remove Programs or Programs & Features, like any normal program. Have you tried that, if so what happened ?

Why won't it allow you to do it, e.g. what error messages are displayed ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

If, as you say, there are that many viruses and rootkits, etc., The first thing I would do is create a topic in the viruses and worms section and follow the instructions given in the following topic.
