Which is your favorite Anti Virus application? As far as I am concerned it’s ESET NOD32 but if you had asked me this question few months back, definitely I would have been in a state of dilemma while answering it. It took me quite a bit of time to figure which Anti-virus is best suited to me. During this whole process of identifying the best, I ran across hell lot of antivirus applications, tried each one of those and finally ended up with frequent install-uninstall process. But then I found that even though you have uninstalled your antivirus through Windows Add/Remove utitlity, yet there are few files and registry entries that remain and are left untouched. Now the question is how to remove those?
Apparently, I am not going to write about each and every AntiVirus Removal Tool here but certainly about 5 most common and vastly used ones.
1. Norton Removal Tool
Norton Removal Tool can be used to remove all the Norton security modules like Norton Anti Virus, Norton Internet Security etc. It works only for Norton Security Package version 2009.
2. AVG Remover Utility
AVG Remover utility removes all traces of AVG installed in your system including registry files and other installation files.
3. McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool
McAfee Removal Tool deletes all 2005-2009 versions of McAfee. It is supposed to be used only when you have uninstalled the software from Windows Add/Remove program.
4. Avast Uninstall Utility
Avast Uninstall utility – aswClear helps you to completely remove Avast Anti Virus from your computer system without much fuss.
5. ESET NOD32 Removal Tool
Although you won’t need this tool because I am sure if you have tried it before you will stick with this anti virus for a long time. But still if you are not happy with its performance and security, you can remove it completely using Nod32 Removal Tool.
