Windows 7: VIPRE Internet Security 2012 Driver Remnants

VIPRE Internet Security 2012 Driver Remnants

Yesterday, I switched from VIPRE Internet Security 2012 to the Good and Free system security combination. due to the problem outlined in post #1 of VIPRE Internet Security 2012 causes the whole system to hang. I now have driver remnants that I cannot get rid of.

GFI Software Firewall NDIS IM Filter Miniport #4 and GFI Software Firewall NDIS IM Filter Miniport #5 did not uninstall from my system.

I tried manually uninstalling them by right clicking them and clicking Uninstall, putting the tick to delete driver software for the device, and clicking OK. Then I restarted. Same problem persists.

The message given when I look in properties for these devices is: Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged (Code 19). I also have no UpperFilters and LowerFilters in {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} to delete (I believe I tried this trick before for another device and apparently it is a one shot deal).

Anyone know how to go about uninstalling drivers with these problems?

Norton Internet Security 2012
My NIS 2011 (which I am very happy with) ends in a couple weeks. I already have the boxed retail 2012 ready to install but looking in the Norton Forums many seem to be having issues with 2012. Has anybody had any experience with NIS 2012 yet?

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012
Well then, I finished installing KIS 2012, it hasn't been RTM'd I think just yet but so far it is a GREAT improvement from KIS 2011. In fact, I'm doing a full scan right now and I haven't even noticed that it was even running! My system is currently running at 2.8Ghz. The system requirements...
