I'm going to use avastclear in safe mode again and ask my mom to lend
me her eyes.

Yes i was afraid that might happen. The best course is to go back to the

install of windows, then remove avast using avastclean and then reboot,

try the update again. If that does not work, then I'm out of ideas and it
may well be you will need to tell Microsoft about this problem.

I do notice that even when avast is completely removed, for example
says its still installed. There is no sign of it in the registry or any
folder or any dll, so where its hiding a signature is probably in the

partition on the drive, but its windows fault not to realise it is, in

a false entry and carry on.

still there.

Well, uninstalling doesn't show up in add and remove programs when I
enter on uninstall. Windows10upgrade however won't skip past the avast
program either. Task manager can't stop the program either.

know how. I'm skeptical that removal is necessary.
