Installation and deinstallation :: Uninstallation
If you wish to remove Avira AntiVir Personal from your computer, you can use the option Add or Remove Programs to Change/Remove programs in the Windows Control Panel.
To uninstall Avira AntiVir Personal (e.g. in Windows XP and Windows Vista):
Open the Control Panel via the Windows Start menu.
Double click on Programs (Windows XP: Software).
Select Avira AntiVir Personal and clickRemove.
You will be asked if you really want to remove the program.

All components of the program are removed.
Click on Finish to complete uninstallation.
Where appropriate, a dialog box appears recommending that your computer be restarted.

Avira AntiVir Personal is uninstalled, and all directories, files and registry entries for Avira AntiVir Personal are deleted when your computer is restarted

That is actually a tool for removing malware.I thought it was the removal tool too.I don't think there is one,I think I'll just have to use Revo then as it's more thorough than add/remove programs.Thanks.

Sorry about that.
There used to be a removal tool.But cannot find it.
Revo Uninstaller will make a better job of removing it.

Thanks.It's a later version and it's for windows vista so I think I'll just go with revo uninstaller and ccleaner.Thanks folks.

I've uninstalled/re-installed many times either under XP or now W7.

Used both Control Panel/Add/Remove or Revo.

Never had a problem and very quick.
