Had to deal with this issue today.
Simply open task manager and terminate "wsc_proxy.exe" (I had to do this twice in a row).

The uninstall utility hasn't worked for me at all (not even in safe mode), unfortunately.

I have had to register an ID for this forum just to say Thank You! You saved my day! Avastclear is useless!
Thank you again, bro!

It is working for almost everyone, but those people are not posting here.
There would be at least something like 100 more posts on this webboard if they did.
