Start -> Control panel -> Programs and features -> right click on 'avast!' -> uninstall/change.

DO NOT just delete folders in program files, unless you put them there (with unzipping for example), use the uninstall feature, which also removes stuff from registers and such.

It depends on the version. In the newest version of avast it's under setting->troubleshooting->enable avast self defense module. Remove the check mark from it, then you can uninstall normally via the control panel.
