Antivirus removal (uninstall) tools & utilities

The standard method to uninstall an antivirus is via “Programs and Features” (Add/Remove Programs) options from Windows control panel. But sometimes using this method, we face problems with the uninstallation process like system crashes or uninstallation cannot be completed successfully. When this happens, the only way to uninstall the antivirus software is by using the removal utility provided by antivirus manufacturer.

In this article I contain all the links to find the appropriate removal (uninstaller) utility for your antivirus product.

Hope you find this list helpful.
