    someone suggested to get the avast removal tool on another computer

    run the uninstaller

    boot back up in normal mode and see if its fixed

    Go to Control Panel / Uninstall Program / Avast Free Antivirus . You'll get a screen with Update, Repair, Modify, Uninstall option, choose Modify and on a following screen uncheck "Avast SafeZone browser", click change and restart computer!

    Hi, and I am happy to help.

    I am a PC consultant and expert, and here is the best way to stop this ridiculous and poorly designed and written tool by Avast, shame on Avast.

    Open Avast, click on "Settings" button (lower left corner), click on "Tools" button, do not get confused with the "Tools" that appear on the first program windows, this is the second "Tool" button (blame stupid Avast designers).

    Now on the right and second from the top your will find "SafeZone" and a button on its right to turn this garbage tool "Off:".

    That is it. Simple, right?

    I also recommend to delete the SafeZone icon on your desktop that gets by default automatically.

    Enjoy !!!

    You have to get rid of Avast to accomplish that.

  • Thank you, Marko. It worked exactly how you explained. It's gone.
