Recently, I have been trying to switch over from Avast! anti-virus to Bitdefender anti-virus (free versions) for performance reasons, but have had problems with compatibility. Bitdefender states an error requesting that Avast Update Helper be uninstalled. Going through that window to uninstall does not assist in uninstalling that service or making the error go away.

I have used several methods to remove all remnants of Avast!, including using Revo Uninstaller to delete lingering keys related to Avast, and any existing folders. I don't know why Bitdefender continues to give me the error, and whether or not it is associated with the remaining .dll and Manifest files related to Avast!.
 

The remaining Avast .dll and Manifest files cannot be removed through all means I have tried. I have changed the ownership of the files to my user account, and it still needs permission from that account (Signed In) to delete or edit them. I have tried the official Avast Removal Software to remove any remaining bits and pieces, but to no avail, Bitdefender still does not go through installation.

Hello everyone, I wish you all good health and a peaceful mind with all that's going on in the World. I have a new laptop and ran a superantispyware scan and it found all this junk on it. I cleaned-up using that programme, are there any other steps you would recommend?

Thanks for reading.
