Since I was running 2 anti-viruses on my Windows PC, I wanted to remove one. The Windows Uninstall Programs Control Panel applet was unable to uninstall it. I tried everything, but the uninstall did not proceed beyond a point and the process then had to roll back.
Uninstall antivirus with AppRemover
While there are several stand-alone antivirus removal tools & uninstallers, I decided to try AppRemover, since the one for my security application too did not work! I must say that AppRemover did the job effortlessly!
AppRemover is a free utility from OPSWAT that enables users to remove anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, and other security applications, as well as leftover files from incomplete un-installations.
There is thus no more a need to mess around with your registry. You can simply run this program and it will do its job.
You can use AppRemover to Remove a Complete Security Application or to Clean Up a Failed Uninstall.
The program is a single, standalone, and portable file; it can be run from a USB stick.
It can remove products made by Avast!, AVG, Avira, BullGuard, CA, ClamWin, ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Lavasoft, McAfee, Microsoft, Norman, Panda, Sophos, Symantec, TrendMicro, TrustPort, Webroot, and many more.
Works just fine on Windows 10/8/7/Vista, 32-bit & 64-bit computers too.
