AV Uninstall Tools Pack: Completely Uninstall Any Windows Security Suite
While in the quest to find the best Windows security program, we install trial and free version of different security suites. Ranging from Anti-virus programs, anti-spyware to full-fledged total security suites (basically called Internet Security Suites by different vendors) gets installed. We always use the program’s inbuilt uninstaller to uninstall the security program. But in the long run Windows takes the blow when the suites left behinds drivers, registry entries and other unwanted stuffs. The operating system becomes slow and starts showing different kinds of errors.
One solution to this problem is to completely uninstall the security suite using the special uninstall tool developed by the vendor of the security suite. Earlier we’ve posted an article titled “Ultimate Collection of Popular Antivirus/ Security Suite Removal Tools” covering almost all the special uninstall tools of popular antivirus and security suites. We’ve also covered article’s on How To Completely Remove Kaspersky Anti-Virus/Internet Security and How To Completely Remove AVG Antivirus. You can follow those articles for removing all the left-over files, left by the antivirus and security suites.
Just like SSDownloader which basically lets you download different security programs and Windows utilities, AV Uninstall Tools Pack is a freeware collection of the special uninstallers. The package comes bundled with around 40 different official tools to completely remove antivirus software, anti-spyware programs and firewalls. These utilities completely remove all files, drivers, services and registry entries that are left behind by the inbuilt antivirus programs uninstallers.
