Can't uninstall Avira Speedup
« on: November 03, 2016, 08:12:09 PM »
I downloaded Avira security suite free. It came with a free 30 day trial of Avira speedup. Almost immediately the free trial ran out and now it keeps asking me to upgrade. I've tried uninstalling but it gives me an error that a file is missing. Meanwhile, the constant pop ups about upgrading or optimizing my PC are really annoying. Other users seem to be having similar complaints according to their support forum. I've tried redownloading and reinstalling the program but it didn't work. I've seen other users say they had to use Revo uninstaller, but even then it didn't remove everything.

The error says "Messages file "C:\Program Files(x86)Avira\System Speedup\unins000.msg" is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.

Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Hello, I'm sorry I wasn't able to respond until now. I followed the directions on the page. When I tried to run the Avira registry cleaner it wouldn't start. It wouldn't do anything when double clicking it. I rechecked the files I needed to delete and they're still gone. Thank you for your help.
