    Thumbs up

    I have come across a program that I think I could use. It's called App Remover, and I would like other posters opinion before I install it

    I haven't used this program. From the description I gather it can be used to remove security software such as AntiVirus, AntiSpyware and Firewall programs. It doesn't remove other software, so it's less general than Revo Uninstaller Freeware which has often been mentioned in the Lounge.

    Do you have a need for such an application? If so, you might give it a try.

    I don't want it to remove other applications, I have Your Uninstaller Pro for that. I could have used it when I remove BitDefender antivirus. I went into the registry and removed all I could find, but come to find out there was more that couldn't be found by regedit.

    I ended up having to use BitDefenders removal tool, that did the trick. Therefore I think App Remover would save me a lot of frustration and work. Can't hurt anything to see if it performs the way I need it to.

    I tried it just to remove a "trial" AV program I was using. It seemed to work OK, BUT, if you have it scan for all security apps, it will ALSO show the MS security hotfixes, a LOT of other MS security things AND EVEN SP3!!!!!

    It doesn't seem to differentiate between AV and malware programs and the necessary MS fixes.

    I'd pass this one up, if I were you.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I've requested the opinion of other people and so far I've only heard from you. I'll add you to the no list. Since you're actually tried it, I respect your opinion and it carries a lot of weight.

    Crossing this one off my list of things to do.

    Thank you my friend.

    You really ought to get a copy of Revo as suggested by Hans. I haven't found ANTYHING that it can't remove, all the way down to the deepest registry entries.
