Something ignored many times... Completely removing ALL traces of an anti-virus.

All techies have been there: a corrupted antivirus installation and nothing one can do to remove it and install a new antivirus.

I always manually Google for removal tools when needed, but I found these pages and actually kinda liked it ; )

Very useful!!! thnx a lot for this list.
I tried the eset online antivirus scan http://www.esetnod32.in/download/online/ and it works - recommended! The only thing, is why is that called ONLINE? it's never online, because you have to download a small tool - scanner first. It weights jnly 2Mb, but still )))
