The program is Avast antivirus trial version. I decide to uninstall it after trying it for some few days and return to my normal antivirus program. I uninstall it sucessfully from add and remove but the icon still appears each time i restart my computer, i tried to uninstall it again, but the icon is no more in add and remove, how do i delete it from windows registry ? THANKS.

where is the icon. In add/remove? in a folder? on your start menu?
What OS are you on?
