there anything else I need to do?
Uninstaller (trial version limited to 4 uninstalls per session; I bought it.) Both start
by calling the app's or Windows uninstall, then search for left-over files and registry
keys, and offer a list for your approval/selection before deleting the junk. In some
cases, an empty folder will be left, which you can remove manually. Recommended.
PS: Don't remove Avira until you've installed and started the other AV program. If you
can't start it without removing Avira first, physically disconnect form the internet,
then remove Avira, reboot, and install/start the other AV program, shut down, and then,
and only then reconnect to the web. Reboot.
I don't agree. This is a very draconian POV.
What don't you agree with? Is it the PS: remark?
