Unable to uninstall Quick Heal Antivirus
  

Hello friends,
I am having a computer which runs on Windows XP and i also use Quick Heal antivirus on my computer. I am facing a problem in uninstalling this antivirus from my computer. I tried to remove it from the control panel but it gives me a message that "unable to uninstall program is running" something like that. Please tell me that how can i remove it, i wanted to install other antivirus as this antivirus is not good in protecting my computer. Thanks in advance.

Re: Unable to uninstall Quick Heal Antivirus

Due to some reason if you wish to uninstall Quick Heal then please follow the steps given below:
  1. You need to click on Uninstall Quick Heal from Start-Programs-Quick Heal group.
  2. After that Quick Heal Uninstaller will prompt for the deletion of Reports.
  3. If in case if you want to reinstall Quick Heal after some time then you can uncheck the Remove Report Files. Otherwise you can proceed by pressing OK.
  4. The Uninstaller window at last will prompt you to restart your system for changes to take effect.
Important Note:
Before doing uninstallation of your quick heal antivirus, please ensure that all programs are closed.

Re: Unable to uninstall Quick Heal Antivirus

As i have seen that Quick Heal is not a real good software tool, as it can corrupt your computer, as compared to it AVG is a good antivirus. If you wish to remove quick heal antivirus then you need to use Add/Remove programs to remove it, after removing it, restart your computer and then remove any other folders or files related to it left in the Program Files of your computer. Quick Heal contains malware files, as a result you will need a AVG or Spybot, or Adaware to get rid from it.
