Avast Uninstall Utility works and is available from Avast. Look for 'aswClear' uninstall utility. It cleans files, directories, and registry entries.

After reading an article https://antivirus-review.com/compare/totalav-vs-avast and looking for some "is Total AV better than Avast" info I can say that it is a good decision to delete this antivirus.
The site you referred to is "upping" those products that pay them more...
They are just as trustworthy as any advertising is! There is no relevance to actual performance or anything other than the amount of money that is payed to them...

These sites are designed to fool you.....

I ended up with it on both my own and my wife's computer because I wasn't careful enough to make sure I unchecked all those boxes when downloading something unrelated.

It was a bear to get rid of, but I did finally get rid of it by using Revo Uninstaller which removes the registry entries, etc., and then I used Agent Ransack to search my computer for anything that said "Avast" and deleted those too.

I use Malwarebytes for my antivirus along with Windows Defender and haven't had a problem in 10 years.
I like Malwarebytes because it doesn't affect the performance of my computer and really does catch stuff before it gets in.

I would just be cautious with removal tools. Technically speaking anything can be removed manually, but there are plenty of things that by removing them you can cause other Windows components to stop working.

I faced the same problem earlier. There is a exe called avast uninstaller. You can uninstall avast by that.
