My wifes new Dell computer came with Avast installed on it.
I have uninstalled it using Revo Uninstaller but it keeps reinstalling it self over and over.

The install files are in the C:\Program Files folder, in an Avast folder.
Windows will not let me uninstall this folder or any of the files in it.

I have used SuperAntiSpyware's SuperDelete application but that can't do it either.
I have looked online and there are hundreds of people are asking the same question.

Usually someone from Avast posts bad mouthing the person who is complaining abut it.

Any one know how to force delete the Avast folder from her computer.
This would be enough to make me avoid Dell computers.

Dell's don't usually come with Avast as far as I know (usually McAfee). Was it a new computer? I've run Avast (and still do) on multiple computers, and uninstalled it dozens of times. I've never had an issue uninstalling. That's a strange one. Maybe someone here has had a similar issue. I haven't seen any posts about it.
