This machine has or has had Avast software.   Can you please be sure ( at this point) that all Avast software is uninstalled.

There is  AVAST Software  Overseer

Avast has a cleanup tool.  Get it, save it, & then run it.   See the directions at  https://www.avast.com/en-us/uninstall-utility


We can do more later, after this is done.
