    Anyone know how I can get Permission to remove a corrupt version of Avast
    antivirus software from a Vista laptop, 32-bit? It shows in Uninstall a
    Program but I get an error and it wont uninstall. Avast has no option to
    Uninstall and the downloaded MS software called
    MSfixit.ProgramInstalluninstall.RNP cannot remove it either. When I try to
    manually remove it I get the Need Permission crap and cannot remove it
    manually. How/where do I get this Permission to remove unwanted corrupt
    software that even MS software can't uninstall? TIA.......

  2. I know that Norton and McAfee provide uninstallers on their respective
    web sites. I would suggest looking to see if Avast does the same.

    If it's like the Symantec (Norton) site, it won't be easy to find, but
    if you manage to dig it up it should be worth the effort.

    I see that David H. Lipman was kind enough to post an actual link, but
    it's dated after your report :)
