I have Avast Pro  antivirus installed and I want to uninstall it but I am unable to do so because on trying to uninstall it, I get this error : “error reading product data from C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\avast\setup\” . Setup cannot continue”

I tried to manually delete the folder but I get this msg “you require permission from administrator to perform this action”, I am already using administrator account. I even tried REVO Uninstaller but still it is not uninstalled.  What’s the next step?

    Antivirus companies usually provide downloadable utilities you can run to fix this sort of problem.

    Here's Avast's version: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
    Just download and run it; it should uninstall Avast properly.
