Antivirus removal tools

Uninstalling an antivirus or any other program should always be done through Add/Remove Programs or by using a free third party uninstaller like Revo Uninstaller or OPSWAT AppRemover. Only use the below methods if the Add/Remove Programs method fails.

This list includes uninstallers for many popular antivirus, antimalware and firewall uninstallers. For a more complete list of uninstallers that remove more than just antivirus, antimalware and firewalls please visit RaProducts’ Ultimate List of Uninstallers

As a precaution, backup your important files and/or Operating System before using any of these tools.

If you are using Vista or Windows 7, after saving the uninstallers, make sure to right-click and choose “Run as administrator”

    • Manual Removal link depends on your version of the software.

For the 2011+ and Titanium products use the information below:

Note: You will be prompted for a password when you extract these uninstallers, use ‘novirus’. Run the ‘Support Tool’ executable and use the same procedure as above.
