It's also available through Bleeping Computer: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/avast-software-uninstall-utility/

Less chance of getting junk bundled with the installer. I just have a personal bias with cnet, sofetpedia and the like. They are leaning heavily on ad supported downloads. I'm not saying thats going to be the case here. But I like to be cautious.
