I'm not entirely sure why you would want to do  ?
What is it that you are trying to achieve  ?

As it seems to go against what avast antivirus is designed to do, protect your system. 
If it was indeed possible to do this, then surely any piece of malware could do the same. 

Avast and no doubt other antivirus programs will try to protect against simple command line commands to uninstall the protection.   Avast also has a self-defence mechanism to protect avast files/folders, etc. etc.

The clean uninstall utility if run in windows normal mode, it would require to restart the system in safe mode and then do its uninstallation.

Yes I know, it's a bit complex..

But the goal is to remove the Avast on 300+ computers with a deployment method because we don't have acces to it.

And after install an other version / av, it's for avoid conflict.

It's the snake that bites its own tail, I understand, the AV need to protect himself and we wan't to mass uninstall it...

Don't know how to do

First I'm an Avast User and not an Avast Team member.
I don't get why you would need to do this on 300+ computers, certainly not with Avast Free.  It sounds more like a business product solution and Avast Free isn't for business use.

I don't know if Avast would even publish something like this on a publicly available forum (if it were possible) for obvious reasons.
