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.
6. CA Antivirus
10. McAfee / another link
11. NOD 32
17. Trend Micro
18. TreatFireCurrently 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.
Thanks for your effort. A handy reference list.ReplyDelete
