Dear Friends, I would like to have your advise on this issue of mine I am stuck in. I had installed Avast antivirus a couple of months back, but even though the program was working and on, about five viruses happened to make roots and the system was unstable. I was advised to try avira instead, and I did. But here I would like to tell you I got mixed up, I installed avira when avast was on. In the same condition I tried uninstalling avast through ccleaner. the pc got restarted, but I still could see avast in the task bar. Avira did manage to find the viruses and clear it. But then in C: program files Alwil folder is still their, in startup it is still their, I cannot disable the startup, nor I could delete the folder, but avira is working fine. How could I get rid of this avast folder, even now windows defender is not working showing some error , unable to start. Restoring doesn't work either. Any suggessions? Ashfaq.
