Anti-virus software components insert themselves into the operating systems core and create files/folders/registry entries in various locations. If is not uncommon for some anti-virus programs to not completely uninstall itself using the usual method of Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7. In many cases anti-virus vendors provide clean-up utilities on their web sites to remove remnants left behind after unintalling or for a failed uninstall.
Alternatively, you can try using Opswat AppRemover - supported applications list.

However, even after using vendor specific uninstallers and removal tools, they do not always do a comprehensive job and you still may need to manually remove folders and other remnants left behind.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Hi guys! So same thing happened to me after uninstalling trying to uninstall Comodo. It f*** my internet connection. After hours of troubleshooting I finally cracked it. It messed up my DNS server for the internet connection. So my fellow sufferers try the following
Oh and Comodo is the most annoying program ever. Worst than any malware I ever had. They pissed me off. Do not install this crap or if you do make shure it is a custom install where you disable geek buddy and so forth. Google it before install!

Hi Nemod. I completely agree with you about Comodo. It is truly dreadful. Apart from the things you mention, Comodo Firewall or the full CIS suite are notoriously difficult to uninstall. I gave up on Comodo a long time ago because of numerous problems due to this.
I had the same problem as you (aiong with loads of other issues) of no internet connection. Was it the leftover driver causing it?
This is the ridiculous procedure you need to follow, which I'm sure you did:
And even if you follow this guide to the letter, I know from experience chances are you will still have problems.
