How Can I Remove Avast Secure Browser?

HP Recommended
HP 15 R033TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone. After I installed Avast a few weeks ago, somehow the Avast Secure Browser was also installed with it. Now whenever I open a link, the secure Browser opens by itself. I want to remove this browser but don't want to remove Avast. Does anyone know how I can do this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for replying. However, I had already found this and after following the mentioned methods, finally got rid of the Avast Secure Browser.

Press the WinKey+R then type 'control' hit enter. Go to programs & features, look for the avast browser in the menu, click uninstall.

If you can't see it there, then you might need to uninstall ALL of avast and re-install it being careful to look for the option to untick the browser being installed.

Usually you'll be presented with 'typical' or 'custom' install options. Go to custom, accept all default install locations etc.. but untick the browser option.

Hope this helps.
