Editors' review

AppRemover will find and uninstall any security applications on your system, such as virus protection programs and spybot removers. Sometimes antivirus programs do not uninstall completely, so if you're replacing one security application with another, AppRemover can help you remove the old program so you can start fresh with the new one.

AppRemover sports a clean, well-designed interface. When the program starts, it asks if you want to look for security applications on your computer or clean up a failed software uninstall. We selected the first option, and AppRemover found all of the virus and spyware protection programs on our computer. AppRemover informed us that only our chosen security programs were installed, and that there was no debris left from older programs we've used. The program lists its findings and gives you the option to select which ones you want to delete. There's no Help file, but we visited the manufacturer's Web site for further information. The developer recommends AppRemover to programmers looking to improve the uninstallation process.

This free program works well and installs and uninstalls with no problems. It will probably be of more use to IT professionals and software developers than it will be to the common user; however, it's useful for ensuring that there are no remnants of old and outdated security software lurking in your PC.

    "Great way to deal uninstall recalcitrant AV software"

    December 13, 2013   |   By prophetsboy

    Version: AppRemover 3.1.3.1

    Pros

    - Simple, no installation required
    - Simplifies the process of removing AV and other security software
    - Extremely helpful when an AV program refuses to uninstall, or only uninstalls partially

    Cons

    Have just run it on a machine and it did not notice that Malwarebytes Antimalware free was installed. In fairness, I've used it many times before and have never come across such a problem.

    Summary

    Great little program which is part of my arsenal for maintaining PCs.
