To solve the problem, Avira has came up with a removal tool to completely uninstall Avira AntiVir. This uninstaller package is available for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP users. Windows 98 and ME users will need to first download “Microsoft Layer for Unicode” from this link.

To make sure everything is removed, you can use registry cleaner like registry easy and registry booster to do a complete registry clean up (it helps to speed up your computer as well).
