I have removed avira from the add remove panel but when I do a search it shows 3000 avira files listed. Is there an easy way for a nubie to remove all these files? Thanks

Are you saying you uninstalled Avira thru the Control Panel Add/Remove?
Did you shut it down first?

I am pretty sure the computer was restarted after removing from add remove. I just don't know why so many files are showing in the search.

If you did not shut it off in the Task Bar ,by the Clock, then it was still running files that were not removed.. You may find it better to again shut off first. Re install it . Reboot system...Uninstall (after turning off) and reboot again.

Revo Uninstaller is the main choice here in BC - I've never heard of the others, and iOBit is a dubious software producer IMO.
