Hello,

I deleted Avast Free a while ago and just noticed in my console log that a rogue process is running over and over. I'm on 10.6.8. Here is a sample of the log.

03/07/2015 21:29:34   com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[119]   (com.avast.update-agent) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds
03/07/2015 21:29:34   com.apple.launchd[1]   (com.avast.uninstall[16132]) posix_spawn("/Library/Application Support/Avast/hub/autouninstall.sh", ...): No such file or directory
03/07/2015 21:29:34   com.apple.launchd[1]   (com.avast.uninstall[16132]) Exited with exit code: 1

03/07/2015 21:29:54   com.apple.launchd[1]   (com.avast.uninstall[16141]) Exited with exit code: 1
03/07/2015 21:29:54   com.apple.launchd[1]   (com.avast.uninstall) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

It repeats this over and over. Could anyone please assist? How do I stop this?

Best,

Because that's not how you uninstall Avast, there's a top menu item when running avast that says 'Uninstall Avast'. You'll have to reinstall it again and use the proper method, that's the easiest way.
