Removing Avast! Antivirus from Window Home Server

I was having a problem creating some large disk images on my Windows Home Server from my Mac.  I thought that the Avast! antivirus could be causing some problems with this.  So I decided to try uninstalling it, and seeing if I could create the files.  Unfortunately, attempting to uninstall it from the Add-in screen of the Windows Home Server or from the Add/Remove Programs from the Control panel failed.

This post has a some steps that worked for me to uninstall Avast! antivirus.  It looks like the disk image creation is also working better without Avast!, so I probably will not reinstall it.
