Comprehensive list of anti-virus uninstallers

There are several reasons for uninstalling an antivirus or anti-spyware software from a computer. For example, running more than one antivirus on the same machine can cause system instability. So we need to completely remove previously installed security software before installing a new one.

But the problem is that a typical uninstallation using the Windows Add/Remove Programs is often insufficient, special removal utilities for specific antivirus products are required. Below is a comprehensive list of uninstallers.

1. AppRemover: This tool enables you to thoroughly uninstall most of the popular security applications such as antivirus, antispyware and firewall from your computer.

2. Avast uninstall utility uninstalls Avast security products.

3. AVG removal tool

4. Avira Removal utility

5. Bitdefender

6. CA Antivirus

7. Dr-web security products

8. F-Secure

9. Kaspersky

10. McAfee / another link

11. NOD 32

12. Norton

13. Panda 2007 / 2008 / 2009

14. Panda Cloud antivirus

15. Prevx

16. Sunbelt

17. Trend Micro

18. TreatFire

Currently the above links are working, but there may be change in the future. Some of the lists are collected via ESET Knowledgebase and others by searching through the web. If you have got a new one please add it in the comment. Thanks.
