Tool for uninstalling Avira
« on: November 03, 2008, 05:57:43 PM »
A friend was asking for recommendations for a new anti-virus and of course recommended avast.  She had Avira installed.  What I was wondering is there an uninstall tool for this.  I know Norton and Mcafee have one but didn't know about this one.  Thanks :)

After you use Add/Remove, you should use Avira Antivir RegistryCleaner as well as the appropiate "Uninstallation Package", both of which can be found at the link posted by David.
