    2. The built-in antivirus removal tool will start – follow its instructions.
    3. Upon completion of the Uninstall Wizard, Uninstall Tool will offer to scan the system. Click OK .
    4. The process may take some time, so please be patient. When the scan is completed, a window with the residual data of the remote antivirus will open. Mark the desired positions, then use the “Delete” button .

An alternative to the tools mentioned above is the Advanced Uninstaller PRO application – it offers the user a friendlier interface, deep algorithms for searching and erasing residual data.
