Unable to uninstall a trial programme

  BooST 17:33 24 Aug 2010


I have a couple of trial anti virus programmes that I installed to try out but once the trial ended I couldnt uninstall them from my pc.

The programmes are:

Antimalware Doctor which is listed on the add and remove in control panel but just starts it up again every time i press uninstall

And Security master AV which isnt listed in the add or remove listings in control panel.

Any idea's with getting shot of these programmes would be appriciated.

try using Revo uninstaller...usually works and gets rid of files which are left behind...

They first need removing from Regedit then Windows Explorer in Safe Mode

I must admit your choice of security programs are on the poor side.
I can see why you are having problems having them removed.
If none of the others work update and run the free version of malwarebytes.

Glad you got that sorted.
If looking for an anti-virus why not use MSE from Microsoft it is free.
If you need help with other security programs that you may need just ask.
If you do not have Malwarebytes already downloaded maybe update it and give it a run just to see if there are any nasties on your computer.

MSE if you need it.
