    Red face [SOLVED] Uninstalling Vipre Antivirus

    I have just purchased and installed ZoneAlarm internet security suite. I have been running GFI software Vipre AV and need to uninstall it. IO do not see it in Control Panel but there is a folder for GFI and that folder has the Vipre Av included. How do I go about removing it from my computer when it is not in the Control Panel programs and Features. Thanks in advance.

    BTW, I have shut Vipre down and I have also edited Startup to prevent Vipre from starting when I restart next time. What else can I do to permanently remove it from the computer?

    Welcome to the Zone Alarm User Forum..

    *** NOTICE: Please note that ZAAV, ZASS and ZAES do not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled).

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP/Win7 add/remove software tool in the control panel.

    Guru, I found the V Clean removal just as you were replying. It worked like a charm. I've come here a few times in the past when I was "in over my head" and the forum has never failed me. Thanks to all the staff here for what you do.
