On the top right, click on Avast icon, click on Open Avast Security. This will open the GUI
While GUI is focused, go to menu, click on Avast Security->Uninstall Avast Security

There should not be any trick in it. Open the app, go to the top left corner of your screen, and close to the "apple icon" you will see "Avast Security" menu. Choose "Uninstall" from the menu and uninstallation process will start...

Quality is also a feature.
