    Most of the reputed Antivirus softwares are enough sticky.

    They are either refuse to uninstall itself or leave footprint after unistallation.

    There are uninstaller tools available in the internet which can be downloaded from the antivirus makers website.
    Log into Avast website and download the uninstaller and uninstall.

    Uninstaller ike Revo Uninstaller which can be downloaded from the internet can also be used to uninstall the antivirus, can try that too.
