Another great free antivirus program is called Antivir. It does not
take up a lot of system resources and is excellent at quarantining
viruses and other nastyware. However, like all other antivirus
products, there may be times when you need to uninstall or remove it.
Corrupted virus signatures have caused it not to update properly, or it
wont start properly and it needs to be reinstalled. Maybe corrupted
files are causing 100% CPU usage. These and other issues can cause you
to uninstall and reinstall your antivirus product.
Whatever the reason for needing to uninstall Antivir, I've listed the best procedure for doing this below:
first thing you want to try is to locate AntiVir in the Add/Remove
Control Panel and try to remove it from there. Follow these
instructions to accomplish this.
1) Click on Start, Control Panel 2) Open Add/Remove Programs 3) Find AntiVir in the Programs list and highlight it 4) Click Remove and follow the prompts to uninstall Antivir
What if Windows Security Center Shows AntiVir or other muliple Antivirus products installed
quirk with AntiVir causes it to still show up in the Windows Security
Center even when its been uninstalled properly. If this is the case,
please refer to this article to resolve it.
