or install then uninstall

if not, try ccleaners uninstall option

Download Revo Uninstaller.

Run the program and highlight avast!.

Choose the advanced un-install mode and let it do its thing.

It'll then scan for leftover information...

Make sure you delete everything in bold and 'checkbox' the files that come up after the un-install process. You might have to expand entries to reveal unwanted files.

I use it to remove all traces of an application.

You reinstalled it then tried to uninstall it and it didn't work? Usually that works.
