AV Uninstallers

A List of Antivirus Program Uninstallers

For most AV programs it is required to use a specific uninstaller for a complete removal of the AV program.
I found this list of uninstallers somewhere (I do not even remember where) and thought it would be useful to place it into this tutorial section.

Update: I just learned that the list was compiled by fredvries. And there is even more at this link.

I am glad you guys may find some use for it. But let me again point out that I did not personally compile the list. Someone had posted it a while ago somewhere in some other context - could have been Corinne. But that post had long disappeared from the radar screen and I thought it would be ashame if the list did not get more use. I use it in my teachings at the computer club.

Thank you for posting part of the RaProduct's Ultimate List of Uninstallers. You can find the complete list here.

Fred's lists of uninstallers includes the following:
[1] Having trouble uninstalling programs from your computer?
[2] Uninstallers for Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Programs

Oops! I see Fred saw the link & already replied. Welcome to Seven Forums, Fred!

Thanks guys for reminding me where the list originated because I did not remember. But I just thought it might be handy in our tutorial section. And I did not Google it, that's for sure.
