List of Uninstallers / Removal Tools for All Popular Antivirus Software

Almost all of us use anti-virus program in our system. Some of us use a free anti-virus and some of us use a paid one.

Many times we want to uninstall our existing anti-virus program to install a new one as its always advisable to use only one anti-virus program at a time in our system. More than one anti-virus can cause lots of performance and stability issues.

Although we can uninstall the existing anti-virus using Windows "Add/Remove Programs" (or Programs and Features) applet but sometimes it doesn't remove the program completely which can interfere with the newly installed anti-virus program.

So what to do? How can we uninstall the existing anti-virus completely? The answer is using the official uninstaller tool which is given by the anti-virus company. Almost all anti-virus companies provide an official uninstaller which can remove the anti-virus completely from your system. But finding the uninstaller tool is not an easy task, that's why we are giving here a list of uninstallers for almost all popular anti-virus software so that you can easily download them.

Just run the uninstaller's EXE file and follow the instructions. Restart your system and you are ready to install your new anti-virus software.

  • Thanks, VG. But I want to let you know (or to remind you) that another very efficient tool in uninstalling antiviruses, not being made by the antivirus owners themselves, is Revo Uninstaller, wich has the capability of scaning and deleting all leftovers after the official uninstaller did it's job. Using this tool I managed to uninstal antiviruses as Kaspersky, Bitdefender and Panda.
