    Avira removal


    I need to remove Avira from one of my laptops. I have Googled and something called Luke Filewalker, which is the Avira scanner sometimes does not remove itself. If anyone has any experience with Avira removal, please let me know. Unless I have to boot into Safe mode and do a manual uninstall my options are Windows-Programs-Uninstall Avira, or I have Revo Uninstaller, if that would work better.

    Agree with you 100%
    Cannot rush these uninstallers otherwise will leave traces behind and you end up taking twice as long
