So, for the past few weeks, after "uninstalling" avira and switching to Avast!, I noticed that the processes - the shadow copy and Host Framework service - for Avira is still running. I've been trying to shut it down by task manager, even using Advanced Uninstaller Pro to delete all files from the HDD and registry associated with Avira, but it did nothing. I was considering to go into safe mode to delete the thing altogether.

Is there any other solution besides going into safe mode in which Avira can be deleted from my laptop forever?

I strongly recommend CCleaner - I admit I have no idea if it works better/worse than A.U.P. but it does do a registry scan for anything out of date/pathways missing etc. It's free too. You could try that :)
