I wonder what kind of applications are these. I mean removal, is like uninstalling. But that we can do it by directly uninstalling from windows operating system. So what is need of these kind of applications. I always love to have more information regarding technology. So would love to hear more information about this one too.

Sometimes anti virus programs have trouble uninstalling the normal way, they can get corrupted so with these they will force the program to remove by finding all the files related to the program and removing them fully.

That sounds interesting. So far I never experienced something like this during uninstalling process. But who knows about future. I will surely bookmark this for my future reference too. And share it with my friends too. Thanks for your quick and helpful reply.

That's perfect. You sounds like technician too. Can you tell me who made these removal applications. Is it available on internet and you found them, or you have personally developed them to get rid of this problem?

They are made by the official anti virus companies for example AVG have their own tool to remove their own software if it does not want to be removed the normal way. Some people just don't know they are there so thought about listing them here from each website to make it easy.

Well, you can surely count me in the list of those some users. Lol. Because I am hearing about this thing for first time. I never knew that even anti virus company itself making such things officially. This is really helpful information. Thanks again.

    • Hi, Maybe this isn't the right forum for it, but I thought we'd quickly see this discussion degenerate like the housing thread did... so Bickering Room it is (unless a mod deems it worthy of another spot). There's just a couple of weeks left to buy RRSP's for the 2016 tax year. I've been doing a bit of research and am deciding between TD eSeries funds (not exactly sure which ones yet) and Tangerine's funds (Balanced Portfolio for RRSP and Equity Growth for TFSA contribution). Anyone with experience with either? Or another recommendation?
        Thanks I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
