Windows 10: Can't get rid of AvastUI Solved

    Cant get rid of AvastUI


    I did some testing of spyware and antivirus programs some time ago, and some of the programs had issues with being uninstalled. One of them was avast, and after uninstalling it, theres a program left called avastui.exe that loads on startup, and i cant seem to figure out how to get rid of it.

    Solution: the avast software uninstall utility gets rid of the program.

    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.
