Can't uninstall avast free antivirus
« on: March 20, 2022, 03:03:20 PM »
Hi everyone, I'm currently using a free version of avast antivirus on windows 11. I wanted to uninstall it so I used the uninstall tool provided by avast here:

I opened it with administrator's privileges but it won't open. Just a blue little window pops up and a light blue line loads for a couple of seconds and it shuts down on its own. I think the issue is that the tool is not windows 11 compatible.

I tried uninstalling using the control panel but avast wasn't visible among the other programs there.

I just need a way to uninstall it. Would appreciate any help/tips.

Have you tried using it in Safe Mode?
I'm on Windows 11 and have used the removal tools more than once
without any issues.
