When I download and install AnVir Task Manager Free, it also installs Reg Organizer that I don't want. How to get rid of this?

Uninstall the whole package and make sure you untick the box when reinstalling that offers Reg Organizer,

Oh sorry, I didn't see it because I'm in hurry installing it.

Can I still uninstall Reg Organizer using Programs and Features?

That can be quite bothersome, make sure you know what your clicking yes or agree to.

Did you notice the other "offers" they had bundled?

Since that is how most programs are uninstalled, I figured you had already tried that.

I went ahead and installed it to see if it could be uninstalled that way, it appears to have been removed quite easily.

Just be careful what you click on when installing, some things are pretty difficult to get rid of.

BillP Studios - WinPatrol 2012 is great little program that can keep you informed of changes being made to your system.
