hi... i got a problem... i have install avast antivirus... and paste some language patch.. but i delete the old one before changing to new one... now i can't uninstall it... or delete it from program files documents... i try next things...

- standard uninstall (did not help me at all)
- use CCleaner to remove it from Add/Remove files in Control Panel (i have remove it but that did not help me at all)
- try to remove it from startup/services list using msconfig (did not help me at all)
- try to set folder to not be read only so i can delete it (did not help me at all)
- give all users permit to change the folder (did not help me at all)
- try to shut it down in Task Manager (did not help me at all)

kemalitore hi. Re-install Avast. Change the language (you should get asked in the installation process).
If not, don't worry. Post back here.

Have you got a Restore Point available from before you installed it ? If so, use it.

Hi kemalitore< I have had success with this from avast, albeit it was in xp but no reason why it should not do this in Win 7,

Have tried tapping the F8 key when booting, this should give you the option of booting into safe mode.
