If you cant remove avast via the normal uninstall programs then you will have to run the uninstaller http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility from safe mode, the uninstaller will remove all versions of avast ( but you need to choose which version ) with reboots inbetween.

Complete instructions on removing one antivirus and installing avast!
can be downloaded from http://goo.gl/amZ50.
In your case simply choose Removing avast!4.8 and Installing avast!6
