Problems with uninstalling Avast
« on: November 01, 2019, 01:03:52 AM »
Hey I downloaded the AvastClear program to remove Avast (I don't see why you would need ANOTHER program to uninstall the main program but ok) but what happens now is each time I start up the computer, I have to select operating system between Windows 10 and Avast Clear. This is incredibly annoying. Why did it not just remove itself? How can I remove this alternative OS without accidentally breaking my computer?

Which needs to be removed.

You usually dont, but sometimes things dont work as it should and then the uinstall tool is needed
