I have avast! for mac version 2.7R0(service kit 1.41)

both the preferences and quit avast options are greyed out.  i couldn't find a mkinstall.sh script as another thread outlined. 

how do i uninstall this application?

thanks


Were you able to delete the application? I have the same problem, both the preferences and quit options are grayed out. The application keep on starting, even if I've terminated the process in activity monitor.

Hallo,
this was explained many times on this forum. Just quit the app and agent from menu (relevant item will be greyed in persistent mode, thus, turn this mode off first in preferences), and move the app to the trash. That's all :).
