AntiVirus & Internet Security Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software programmes

Running two antivirus products on the same computer can cause system instability and degraded performance. Do not attempt to install a new AntiVirus programme without uninstalling your previous AV programme. It is important that any previously installed antivirus software is uninstalled from your system before installing your a new security product.

For your convenience, as typical uninstallation using the Windows removal tool (Add/Remove Programs) is often insufficient, removal tools* for common antivirus programs can be downloaded by following the links below.

You should always create a 'Restore Point' before attempting an uninstallation of this nature.


1. Click the link associated with the antivirus software currently installed on your system and follow the prompts or instructions on the website.

2. After uninstallation is complete, you will need to restart your computer. You may then proceed with installing your new security product.
