    One for ZoneAlarm with a note for safe mode
    Link to uninstall instructions: Self-Service Support

    Note:
    WARNING - Do NOT run the ZoneAlarm Uninstall program while in Safe Mode unless absolutely necessary. The program may not be able to make the proper registry changes in Safe Mode, thus generating errors after a reboot.

    Thanks Martijn

    I could not get to the link you provided, but included it anyway. I guessed that you have to be a registered ZA user.

    I also included a link to direct download the tool from ZA servers. I found that link in the support forums with one user stating that it worked only in safe mode after running it in normal mode

    I added a PostProcess note about Safe mode based on your Warning and the ZA post.

    I'm not a registered user as I've never used ZA and can access the site on any system I have quickly access to :)

    Since you have all these removal tools listed(thanks), would it be a good idea to use them at a later date?
    I was using Panda several months ago, but removed it. Now using Defender. Would running the Panda removal tool now, possibly find any leftover files and remove them? Or even using two or three removal tools to remove all previous AV programs used.

    Most AV products do a better job of uninstalling now-a-days - these tools were created to supplement an uninstall only if the standard uninstall did not completely remove the product.

    If your machine does not exhibit any issues, then you do not have to run the standalone removal tools

    I doubt that it will be. Bill wasn't well and has not posted here sine late 2016 or on his blog since December 2016.

    Bitdefender Uninstallers


    Uninstall Consumer Paid

    Uninstallers for Bitdefender iterations back thru 2016. I'm about finished with my subscription...Total Security. It is way more trouble than it is worth. PCMag should be ashamed making this editors choice.!

    Anyway, I had a hard time finding this site so I hope it saves someone time.

    About Vipre...

    This link of "How to manually remove VIPRE Antivirus or VIPRE Internet Security : Support" didn't work, even after logging in to my Vipre support account.

    Submitted a support ticket for clean up the leftover Vipre files, here's the response:

    You can use this removal tool to get rid of any traces of VIPRE: www.sunbeltsoftware.com/support/VIPRERemovalTool.exe
    FYI...

    Sunbelt Software initially developed and marketed Vipre A/V since '94 or '95. Since then, it has gone through ownership changes about three times, currently owned by j2 Global.

    I've been running Vipre on my systems since '98 and have an Unlimited Home Site License/PC Lifetime License, no yearly license renewal, started with Windows NT 4.0 I believe. Every new owner of Vipre tried converting the license to yearly renewal and after a minor disagreement, they had honored the original Sunbelt Software license.
