Avast Installer Keeps asking me to reboot
« on: December 19, 2018, 08:57:32 PM »
Uninstalled Avast Free Version to get Safezone Browser off my computer.  Tried to remove it without uninstalling avast but could not figure out how.

When I try to reinstall avast, avast installer keeps asking me to reboot.  I have turned my computer off twice so far.  What's the deal?

You didn't say, but if you are running Windows 10, merely shutting down the system does not amount to a restart, due to how fastboot in Win10 is set up.  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fastboot+in+win10&t=ffab&ia=web

You'd actually have to do a restart to have your system shut down completely and then start again.

Still stuck with Avast SafeZone?  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=93544.msg1305451#msg1305451  Posted April 7, 2016.
