How can I delete this programme from my computer? I have tried deleting in the usual way Add or Remove but it will not delete. I am now using AVG and they are both Virus protectors which is not good. Please help.

Does the Avast website not provide a "removal tool" like norton and others for it's own programs?

This link may help: http://support.avast.com/index.php

I stumbled into an app online and submitted it to Cloud Eight InfoAve Premium newsletter for them to check it out. They had it in their next addition and said it's a great program with no adware or anything attached and thanked me for submitting it. I haven't used it, although I did download it. It's called AppRemover. It is a free program and it is for nothing but removing security applications. The people at InfoAve tried it out and said it's a very good program.

It says that it thoroughly removes security applications. However, it doesn't work yet on all applications so you have to check the list to see if yours is on it, and then you can submit it to them if it's not on the list. Here's the link: http://www.appremover.com/opswat-appremover-thorou...

They also highly recommend Revo Uninstaller for any other type of program and I use that too.
