Anti-virus Removal Tools

Anti-virus Uninstaller Tools

Many times you will find that you are not able to uninstall an anti-virus application from your computer. Many people often freak out and immediately rush to the phone to call their “online tech support” company because they think their computer has been infected by some “very bad virus” which would not even allowing them to uninstall the anti-virus from their computer!

Some other people end up paying a few hundred dollars to one of these companies just to get rid of an old anti-virus program!

Did you know that this problem is often only caused by running multiple anti-virus applications in the same computer? That’s not all – most of these anti-virus programs often need special tools to remove them. Nothing we can do about it. That’s how they are built.

The next time you are faced with such a situation, relax and just used the tools provided in this article to get rid of the unwanted anti-virus application.

Remember this: ALWAYS remove one anti-virus program completely from your computer and restart it before installing another one. Also, you just need ONE anti-virus and ONE anti-spyware program to keep your computer working properly. Do NOT install multiple applications – they will only conflict with each other and crash your computer.
