Problems getting rid of everything from CA Internet Security

March 27, 2012 at 20:28:32
Specs: Windows 7, 2.2 GHz / 3963 MB
How do I get rid of CA Internet Security completely since after doing a normal unistall and trying to install kapersky antivirus, kapersky tells me I cannot install the program due to the fact that there is still some left over files from CA. I have looked and cleared all I could but I still keep getting the same message from kapersky and it won't install. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I suspect (if I am correct), that files have been left on the registry but don't know how to go there to delete them.

you may have to re-install CA and then use revo uninstaller to completely uninstall it.

Hi, thanks for your response and help but, what if I threw away the disc. I no longer have it. My bad! What other options if any are there?

try revo uninstaller in hunter mode, see if it finds the leftover junk in the registry

pr_arcangel_2000,
If that doesn't work download Regseeker from this link:
http://regseeker.en.softonic.com/
In the first item on the GUI click Find In Registry and enter "CA Internet Security" without the comma's. It will ask you to backup the items that are to be deleted, please allow this. You should now have removed all remnants of CA Internet Security.

Before using registry cleaners, which can often do more harm than good, try the removal tool, as recommended by, & available from the manufacturer:

Hello again guys, XpUser, MrGood and John, I appreciate your help and answers, all have help somewhat, however, the simplest and easiest one was beginning with the manufacturer as John suggested and it took care of the problem. I'm not too computer savvy and it's always nice to have other computer users that are willing to help and assist whenever the need arrises. Thank you once again guys from the bottom of my heart, like the saying goes" more than one head can think more or better and four eyes can see better than two. Thank you again and cheers!
