Windows 7: I cannot uninstall Avira Free AV

I cannot uninstall Avira Free AV

I downloaded and uninstalled the free version of Avira AV (was using Microsoft Security Essentials). It would not update properly, so I decided to uninstall it. I used Revo Uninstaller (advanced mode). After the uninstall I rebooted and Avira is still there. It does not appear in the Control Panel/Programs & Features and it is not in the list of programs in the start menu. I also downloaded and ran the Avira registry cleaner, which removed some registry items but left several others.

I could use some help in getting rid of this.

I think I solved it on my own. I re-installed the Avira AV over what was on my computer. This gave me a screen that gave me the option to remove the program, which I did. UI then ran the Avira registry cleaner again and was able to delete the remaining Avira related registry items.
