Windows 10 updates and AVs other than WD often conflict. Based on what I've read here and on the net.....I think
using WD instead of Avast is acceptable.
I reviewed your first topic here at BC. If you are experiencing similar problems today then I suggest you start a new topic
in the malware removal forum.
I suggest you use the Avast Uninstall Utility in Safe Mode when you decide to get rid of Avast.
Sometimes it's not possible to uninstall Avast the standard way - using the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in control panel. In this case, you can use our uninstallation utility avastclear.
- Download avastclear.exe on your desktop
- Start Windows in Safe Mode
- Open (execute) the uninstall utility
- If you installed Avast in a different folder than the default, browse for it. (Note: Be careful! The content of any folder you choose will be deleted!)
- Click REMOVE
- Restart your computer
