Re: Cannot Remove Avira Antivirus

Hello , I Would try having it reinstall the Avira program once more and then try uninstalling it again. Perhaps something became corrupted on the first attempt at removing it Hope it Help you

Re: Cannot Remove Avira Antivirus

Hello , Check this Tools Below It might Be G

Avira RegistryCleaner
The Avira RegistryCleaner removes all entries that were created with AntiVir 6. In this way, it prepares your system for the installation of AntiVir version 7.

Uninstallation packages
You can repair a trouble-free uninstallation routine of AntiVir version 6 with those packages. If AntiVir 6 can't be uninstalled correctly, you can reset the routine of the relevant files by replacing them.

Tools
Avira AntiVir RegistryCleaner
Uninstallation package for Windows NT, 2000 and XP

Re: Cannot Remove Avira Antivirus

Hello You can Try running RegCleaner and remove all Avira, H+BEDV or AntiVir entries

You also need to delete the AntiVir directory from Program files, the shortcut on your desktop and the Startup Programs folder.

Also, you can manually delete these entries from Registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AntiVirScheduler
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AntiVirService
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\avgio
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\avgntflt

  2. Double click on Software (Windows Vista: Program files).
  3. Select Avira AntiVir Personal and clickRemove.
  4. You will be asked if you really want to remove the program.
  5. Click Yes to confirm.
  6. All components of the program are removed.

Re: Cannot Remove Avira Antivirus

Hello You can the Revo Uninstaller helps you to uninstall software and remove unwanted programs installed on your computer even if you have problems uninstalling and cannot uninstall them from "Windows Add or Remove Programs" control panel applet.Revo Uninstaller is a much faster and more powerful alternative to "Windows Add or Remove Programs" applet!With its advanced and fast algorithm, Revo Uninstaller analyzes an application's data before uninstall and scans after you uninstall an application. After the program's regular uninstaller runs, you can remove additional unnecessary files, folders and registry keys that are usually left over on your computer. Even if you have a broken installation, Revo Uninstaller scans for an application's data on your hard disk drives and in the Windows registry and shows all found files, folders and registry keys so you can delete them. With its unique "Hunter mode", Revo Uninstaller offers you some simple, easy to use, but effective and powerful methods for uninstalling software. You can use it to manage your installed and/or running software programs.

Download from here

Re: Cannot Remove Avira Antivirus

I assume that you tried to uninstall it from the add and remove .
Now you can download and install the Revo uninstaller . It will completely uninstall the Avira antivirus from your computer. ie from the registry as well .
