I'm worried that my laptop might have been infected by a virus. I cannot turn on Avast Antivirus. I also tried to uninstall it because I thought that re-installing it could fix the problem but it turns out that I can't also uninstall Avast. Please help. Thanks.

Try using an uninstaller like Revo to remove your antivirus,

Also if you think you are infected with anything try scanning with malwarebytes and if that does not work adwcleaner before you reinstall.
