    Uninstalled Avast to use Windows Defender, tells me to uninstall Avast...

    So I had Avast on my computer as my anti-virus program, and was really annoyed at the pop-ups I'd constantly get, so I uninstalled it, and decided to use Windows Defender.

    I tried to turn on real time protection, but it tells me uninstall Avast first....I not only uninstalled avast, but I deleted it's remnants from where it was kept in my hard drive.

    Any suggestions on what I should do?

    Thanks!

    Uninstall Avast program

    I thank you for prompt response. However, I follow your advice and try to use Avast uninstaller tool, they suggest to allow the tool to put the computer on safe mode. Its that a good thing to do?

    How to Uninstall Avast?

    Significant problems while trying to uninstall McAfee and Avast


    Thanks, Ken. Your suggestions worked. My primary problem was not running the Avast uninstall utility as administrator. Once I did that and uninstalled Avast I was able to uninstall McAfee and now everything appears to be working okay.

    Thanks for your help!
