You are having the computer system with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. You are having the avast! 4.8 antivirus software in the system and now you want to remove this program from your system but you are not able to do so. Well i dont know what you are trying to remove because you have not mentioned it over here. You can uninstall it from the "add or remove programs" available in the Control panel.

If you are not able to uninstall the avast! 4.8 antivirus program from your desktop computer having the Windows XP operating system in the normal windows mode then i think you should try to uninstall the avast! 4.8 antivirus program in the Windows safe mode. So start your desktop computer in the Windows safe mode and try removing this antivirus application.

However you have not mentioned the error which you are getting during the uninstallation of the avast! 4.8 antivirus software. May be some of the files are missing of the software because of which it is not able to uninstall from the system. So i will advice you to uninstall the avast! 4.8 using the installation disc. Insert the disc in the DVD rom, After that you will get the repair or uninstall option if the software exist in the system. Select the uninstall option. This will remove the program.
