I've previously tried Norton but that was a big no no, crashed my system all the time. Don't ask us to compare or recommend products. My assumption based on the first appearing board misled me, I stand corrected. Any suggestions on how to resolve the problem would be greatly appreciated.

Note; I also re-started my computer after uninstalling. Any ideas why Avast needs this much? Uninstall Utility saved on 1 in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. However, it was fun, and overall I would say, well-designed. Yesterday, I decided to install Avast on my computer.
