  • It is a well known fact that you should not run more than oneanti-virus-removal-tools anti virus on your computer, unless you want your computer to be terribly slow and take half an hour to open a 1 MB image file.

     

    Now consider this scenario where you would want to remove the anti virus that you are currently using and install another anti virus, from another manufacturer. In that case, you would first have to uninstall your current anti-virus and then install the other anti-virus.

     

    But in some cases, the installation of the first anti virus may remain incomplete, leading you to not be able to install the new anti-virus, as it detects some leftovers of the previous anti-virus. So, you are now left with no anti virus at all. To avoid this solution, you should use an anti virus tool, that is provided by the manufacturer.

     

    A simple Google search will give you most of the anti-virus removal tools, but here is a complete list of them:

     

    Avast, AVG, Avira, BitDefender, BullGuard, CA Antivirus, Comodo Internet Security,

    CounterSpy, Cyber Defender Early Detection Center, Dr.Web (Registration required),

    eScan, ESET, FRISK F-PROT Antivirus for Windows, F-Secure, G Data, Kaspersky,

    Kingsoft, K7 Total Security, LavaSoft, McAfee, Norman Security Suite, Norton (Symantec )

    Panda, Pareto Logic, Sophos, Trend Micro, Vipre, Webroot, Windows Live OneCare

    Windows Security Essentials, Zone Alarm.

     

    Thanks to @Eset for the huge list.

     

    Tip: To avoid incomplete removal of any software, use uninstallers like Revo Uninstaller.
