Yeah, when I had the virus it wouldn't let me open task manager, so i googled alternative task manager and ended up getting a temporary one. Unfortunately i already uninstalled and I don't remember the name of it, but it would show a few processes grayed out and one of them was the avast antivirus exe file. When I would remove it, it would be back there when I'd refresh the processes.
Oh btw that link to fix safemode did it! Thank you. I was finally able to go into safe mode and from there I took care of that undeletable folder (avast) that was getting me frustrated.
