I have spent hours and hours trying to get Avira off of my computer not just their idea of "uninstalled" but completely and utterly gone from my hard disk. This should have required 3 or 4 mouse clicks at most. It says I must act as administrator in order to delete unwanted file, but I have only one account and I am the Administrator. Every day I get a message that the Avira system tray app has crashed, the Revo deep scan and registry clean did not get rid of this very frustrating program.

Same problem hours following all the instructions and I am getting a sense that Avira created a system that requires you to download and install other systems to remove Avira. What a scam!! I am going Social with this issue. Hijacking computers this is Malware at its worst.

Nothing has solved this issue and I have read all the complaints post in the Avira forum.

It says that "Uninstall it manually... Automatic uninstall failed"....
MY WAY OF UNINSTALLING IT:
Download Revo Uninstaller PRO Trial Version from here : http://www.revouninstaller.com/download-professional-version.php

Open it and then right click Avira/Antivirus PRO and select "show registry keys"....
It will open Registry Editor.... Click on Avira and Antivirus PRO from the side section, select all it's keys and press delete....

Now open control panel or start an search for Avira....

You won't find it!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!VICTORY!!!!!!!!! AVIRA UNINSTALLED!!!!!!!!!!

But problem i am having is that the 30+ files still left in my program files wont let me update other software. These files will not uninstall as message reads (even when i have just started computer) that files are open in another program which they are not. So there is a big problem with uninstalling software at the moment. I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can help me uninstall Avira program files from my computer

On June 27 2018 I renewed my AVIRA software and right away I started having trouble with my computer locking up . So friday October 19,2018 I had a Technition remove the software and install a different software , now my computer is working fine. I would appreciate a refund of the purchase price of $ 44.99 that I paid for the software.
Thank You
