    A List of Antivirus Program Uninstallers
    Published by

    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.

    Eset has now (April 2015) released a tool that supposedly can remove most any AV program.

    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.

    whs -- the original was compiled by Fred de Vries (one of the JavaRa developers). See Ultimate List of Uninstallers.

    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
    [3] Uninstallers for Other Programs
    [4] Uninstallers for Drivers

    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.
