Avira on Windows 8 causes crashes

Hi.

Computer is crashing 2-3 times every day. Then I realized from minidump files that avira causing it. Then I try to uninstalled Avira Free but at "Stopping Services" stage it crashes and restarts the computer. I tried it 10 times today and each time it crashed. How can I uninstall Avira Free. It doesnt allow me to end processes of Avira from Task Manager either.
