Hi Cody ,

If Rising Antivirus was installed to C:\Program Files ( on a 64-bit OS ) the Free version of RevoUninstaller will not locate it . You would have to download and install RevoUinstaller Pro (30 day Trial ) .

Note   Note
Windows 7 64-bit has Two Program Files folders . C:\Program Files( for 64-bit software ) and C:\Program Files (x86) ( for 32-bit software )

Thanks for all the info! I will try CCleaner's Uninstall mechanism and see if it finds it. If not, I will try the Revo 30-day trial and see if it can locate it.

Revo did the trick! I manually pointed to Rising's program files and it wiped out all of its program files and registry entries. I did a restart and it was gone. Unfortunately, CCleaner didn't even find Rising before I used Revo 30-day trial. Thanks for the help!

Yes, very good news and I am glad it's gone. Never saw such a program that hard to remove. It's unreal.

codyw if you feel comfortable in the registry I bet you will still find parts of that anti virus there. It will leave little pieces of things in every nick and corner of a operating system.
Another little program I use is Everything Search.

****Warning****

Everything Search Engine

You must use with caution because you are fooling with the regisrty.

Sentinel72, I see why you don't like Rising.
Layback Bear, the only time I really like messing in the registry is in one of my many virtual machines because they can be easily screwed up and the risk is high for damaging the operating system. Thanks for recommending another tool! In the event the system does show signs of instability, then I will give the tool a try. But I completely understand what you mean with tiny leftover remains from Rising.
