Can not install Avast on my Mac
« on: October 13, 2019, 10:09:47 PM »
I had Norton installed on my mac but i went through and uninstalled and removed everything regarding norton. I am unable to still install Avast and i dont know why or what to do. I need help trying to figure out this problem.

I assume that it complains about another antivirus presence on your computer, right?
Please try :
1) open Terminal
2) type(or copy) "kextstat | grep -v com.apple"
3) check if any norton/symantec mentioned
4) then you can remove them with "sudo kextunload -b NAME_OF_THE_KEXT"

I'm quite curious which one is it...
Quality is also a feature.
