Something keeps turning off my AVAST anti virus on a windows 10 machine

For the past two days. I've noticed that AVAST had been shutdown. I ran Malwarebytes. It discovered two items that I deleted. I know there is something bad in my computer. I don't think Malwarebytes was able to remove it. I am currently running Malwarebytes again hoping that will be able to discover what is nasty on the computer.

Do you have the newest version of Avast?

Go to MSCONFIG, Boot tab, set to Safe Boot, restart and scan again with Avast and Malwarebytes

Are you sure it's being turned off, or could it just be crashing?  The Event Log could give some evidence of the latter one.  

I'd try a full uninstall, reboot and reinstall, or even a different package.  BitDefender is not bad, and is free.

When you say "I know there is something bad in my computer", what do you mean?  It really helps us if you can describe the symptoms you see, tell us when and how they started, and what you have tried so far.
