I've managed to get it working by also removing Malwarebytes.

The only issue I have now is Avast passwords has disappeared, and I don't know how to get it back to sync it with my phone and other computer.

The extension is added to chrome, but nothing synced.

For "UI failed to load", see this support item from Avast:
