Uninstallers (removal tools) for common Mac antivirus software

KB Solution ID: SOLN2549|Last Revised: April 03, 2014

Are you a Windows user?

Running two antivirus products on the same computer can degrade performance and cause system instability. It is important that any previously installed antivirus software is uninstalled from your system before installing your ESET security product.

  1. Click the link associated with the antivirus software currently installed on your system and follow the prompts or instructions on the website.
     
  2. After uninstallation is complete, you will need to restart your computer. You may then proceed with installing your ESET product.
