After uninstalling the program, there's an Avast folder called 'avast software' and it won't let me delete it. I'm reinstalling it now and see if it will update.

Have you tried running avast's uninstall utility yet? You can find it here. After you've uninstalled it using that, re-install and see if the problem still persists.

Also what is your operating system?
This is Avast 7.

Edit
Are you getting any message?

Edit II
Sorry .... do the Uninstall from safemode and close Avast first.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
