I don't know if this is the proper section but I'm having problems with Avast. I initially installed it because my computer teacher said it was one of the better free anti viruses out there. I thought I would have to uninstall Trend Micro Internet Security but I didn't. I know it's bad to have two Anti-virus programs on the same computer. I merely wanted to try the program out. Now that I want to uninstall Avast, I can't. It won't let me. In fact it's not even listed under installed programs. But when I click on the up arrow on the right hand side of the taskbar it's there running saying I'm unprotected.
Reasons why I'm getting rid of it: I don't like it, I'm going with Trend Micro, and it's blocking itunes from opening.
So I go into my main drive and I find the Avast software, click on it try to delete. It says I need administrator access. (I am the admin on the computer, my account is administrator). Went into safe mode still didn't work.
So at one time I was cleaning space on my SSD and I tried to move Avast over to the other hard drive. I was successful then I tried to delete it and was successful but now its on my SSD and I can't get rid of it.
It's getting to the point where I'm going to do a clean install of windows and have to install everything all over again.
If you have any other suggestions or ideas I will gladly try them, but reinstalling windows is my last resort.
