Does the uninstall utility actually work?
« on: December 22, 2021, 09:13:28 AM »
Hello,

I want to know if the uninstall utility works or has been tested.
Please make sure: after rebooting(uninstall success), Windows Defender antivirus does not say you are using a third-party app and just says Windows Defender antivirus is on.
Windows 11, Avast Free Antivirus. Avast One => Avast Free Antivirus. Currently using Avast Free. Antiviruses: Windows Defender => Avast One(WinDefender deactivated) => Avast One uninstall => WinDefender was activated again => Avast Free Antivirus

Do you receive any errors when you try to run it?

No, I did not uninstall it yet but I still plan to install the "free" edition of Avast, so I want to know.

I've used it many times on most versions including Avast One. Yes, it works.

Does that mean Windows Defender antivirus can be used again?

If you're using Windows 10 and above, when you uninstall any third party AV, Windows Security (Defender)
engages.
