Completely Uninstall Antivirus Software with Antivirus Uninstaller Tool
Nearly every big antivirus software vendor provides a specific antivirus uninstaller utility for their antivirus products. The reason is, probably, because you won’t be able to completely uninstall antivirus software through a standard uninstallation procedure. These antivirus uninstallers will clean every file and registry item left by the antivirus uninstallation. While you can use third-party uninstaller program like Revo Uninstaller, it is best that you use the specific antivirus uninstaller officially provided by the vendor. I have covered here several antivirus uninstallers for some antivirus softwares like Kaspersky, Norton, BitDefender, AVG and Avast. Recently, I’ve just found an application that lets you completely uninstall antivirus and antispyware software from your computer.
AppRemover is an uninstaller created to help you uninstalling antivirus software that you no longer interested. The list of the supported antivirus programs include the ones that are created by Alwil Avast, AVG, Avira, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Lavasoft, McAfee, Microsoft, Panda, PC Tools, Sophos, Webroot Spy Sweeper, Symantec and Trend Micro.
AppRemover is portable, so there is no need to install anything. The advantage of having this uninstaller utility is obvious. You can uninstall antivirus software completely without having to search and download specific removal tool from the vendors. Just make sure that the antivirus program you use is included in the supported list.
AppRemover is compatible with Windows 2000, 2003, XP (32 / 64 bit), Vista (32 / 64 bit), 2008, Windows 7 beta. It scans your system to detect installed antivirus software and then display a list of the detected ones once the scanning process finished. You can select the antivirus programs that you want to uninstall, or simply uninstall all.
