    Default Deleteing Avast free antivirus from my windows10 h/drive.

    I've been trying to remove avast av as above.
    but it refuses to go, & clutters up everything.
    I've tried several programs but they seem to freeze.
    what's going on??
    thanks for any help.

    Have you tried their own removal tool ? https://www.avast.com/en-nz/uninstall-utility

    Normally I'll use revo uninstaller in Advanced mode, which allows you to scan and remove all files, folders and reg keys, then run the removal tool afterwards.

    I use IObitUninstaller which seems to be very good a detecting residual or leftovers
    I used Avast briefly in 2012 then got rid of it. Various forums posts seems to have a history of struggles trying to remove Avast.
    Silly really (by Avast) because such antics arouse resentment.
