    Can't get rid of AvastUI


    Hello

    I did some testing of spyware programs some time ago, and some of the programs had issues when trying to uninstall them. One of them was avast, and after uninstalling it, theres a program called AvastUI.exe that loads with my computer and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I did some googling on this issue but the support on avast didnt have any answers.

    Download Avast Software Uninstall Utility should do the job. You may have to reinstall avast first and then use the tool to ensure you totally clean the system

    The other option which is manual, but potentially more dangerous as you could remove the wrong thing, is to use Autoruns to find the startup for the Avast remnants

    Iobit uninstall removed some virus issues by forcing them to be removed, this was a few years back. But as it's free, you might try that.

    As a suggestion, you should do testing of this sort in a disposable VM machine.

    That seems to have solved it.
