uninstalling an application!!!



Hi there

I’m having a little problem with my laptop, I am trying to uninstall an anti-virus as I normally do just go to add & remove and click on remove only this time it went half way through the process and stopped, there was a message saying the process failed, so I tried again with no success, the firewall of that anti-virus still ON but the anti-virus it self would not work or be uninstalled; so I tried to install another anti-virus the installation goes fine but it doesn’t work properly because of the other problem.
Any ideas guys coz I’m stuck.

Thank you for your help…abbs. confused2

a- HOW ABOUT FIRST EXITING FROM THE ANTI VIRUS THEN UNINSTALLING IT!
B - try this freeware uninstaller

http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

C- you can go to program file and find the folder for the anti virus then uninstall it from there.
D- your final option is to shred the folder using simple file shredder
