    Tried to uninstall Avast prior to 1903 install, but couldn't.


    I've been told that in order to avoid problems when installing Windows 1903 from an .iso file, it would be best to turn off or uninstall any Antivirus programs. I have Avast and used IOBitUninstaller and it appeared at first to be a successful uninstall, but the icon for Avast is still on my home screen, Task Manager still shows it to be running, and I keep getting pop-up notifications from Avast. But when I use any uninstaller to locate Avast in order to get rid of it, it doesn't show up anywhere. So what do I do now?

    :)

    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!
