I downloaded Avast to try it out but I can't get rid of it. It doesn't show up in the usual places but pops up when I boot the computer. Any suggestions.

Is it not listed in Add/Remove Programs?

You can try using the Avast Removal Tool

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before removing your existing anti-virus, you should download and save the setup file for the anti-virus you are going to replace it with. After doing that, disconnect from the Internet, uninstall your current anti-virus, reboot and then install the replacement. Reboot again to ensure it is working properly before reconnecting to the Internet.
