    I am trying to remove software, specifically avira, isobit security, and super anti-spyware. They will not be removed. I tried doing it in safe mode, no luck. I have tried removing them with the add/delete function, no luck. Any other ideas?

    AppRemover 2.2.9.1

    AppRemover fully supports the thorough uninstallation of hundreds of antivirus and antispyware applications. The following support chart is updated with each new release. The chart lists two different types of supported applications. One set has been verified by OPSWAT Labs testing. The other set lists applications that have been reported as supported by the hundreds of thousands of users that have previously downloaded AppRemover. After using AppRemover, please take a moment to answer a few brief questions about the product. Your feedback will greatly improve AppRemover's effectiveness.

    In addition, AppRemover may be able to successfully remove other security applications on your system. However, these are not guaranteed.

    Use AppRemover:

    # When replacing one security application with another
    # When competing security applications tie up your computer
    # When the application's built-in uninstall process fails
    # When you have forgotten the application password
