My PC came with NIS '09 preloaded. Anti-Virus removal tools are life savers, I've had Eset, Norton, Kaspersky, Immunet Protect...etc. Is bugs me like crazy that they would uninstall, and then leave un-deletable files on a PC.

I half suspect that this is because they have no incentive to clean up, after all you are getting rid of it; any subsequent problems are more likely to be blamed on the 'new' AV, but then again I'm a trusting sod, NOT ;D.

Some might at that point go back to the devil they know, abandoning the new AV.

It had sorted it until Avast did its update and now it's back to its old ways. Explorer freezes if you try and launch say a word doc or exel and I use Incredimail for my email and when you click on a link it freezes. It did not do it when I uninstalled Avast.

I have run the Norton removal tool. Avast have a problem!!!
