This article lists the most commonly available uninstall tools for you to match your particular needs.
When attempting to totally remove a security application. (For example: An anti-virus program.) It is considered best practice to use the applications own recommended uninstaller and/or utility. Using the Windows removal tool (Add/Remove Programs) to completely uninstall these programs is often insufficient. If you still have problems after using the companies own tool, then there are certain commonly used programs that you may find useful. All these programs are outside of Dell's control and are used at your own risk. If you are in any doubt, the best thing you can do is contact the third-party company directly for further help.
Security Software includes anti-virus programs, SpyWare Scanners, Registry Cleaners, and Ad Removal Tools.
Click the link associated with the security software installed on your computer and follow the prompts or instructions on the website. Once uninstallation is complete, you must restart your computer.
