Uninstall problems avast 14.9 on mac big sur
« on: June 10, 2021, 12:06:48 AM »
Good day all.   I am hoping someone might be able to help.  I havent found this particular problem on the board, but am not too accomplished in searching.  I am running Mac Big Sur, and avast 14.9.  I would like to uninstall Avast.  I followed the Avast uninstall directions, but the uninstaller keeps saying “Uninstallation failed.  Failed to remove system extensions.”   I have gone into the Mac library, searched for the word “Avast,” and trashed all those files.  Then i have rebooted.   Avast still starts up and runs.  How can i uninstall Avast?    Thanks in advance!!

Hello,
try to run this command in Terminal app:
Code: [Select]
sudo /Applications/Avast.app/Contents/Backend/hub/uninstall.shhopefully it will still run...
Kind regards,
