It is uninstalled. If the program is still running on startup, try Revo Uninstaller. It is really good at uninstalling tough-to-uninstall programs. Do you have another AV program running currently?

I know this is an older post, but just in case you didn't find this yet, download and run the Avira Registry Cleaner Tool. It takes it awhile to delete all the registry keys, but be patient, and you'll "git er done", hopefully :wink:

I also encountered that one. What I did was I restarted the pc and try uninstalling again the program.And that's it. it worked!
