Does AVIRA offer a uninstaller tool ? If so, did you already use it ?

This is helpful, but it does NOT remove the ...\Avira\Launcher\... registry keys.
I had to remove all the values manually.

You'd think their RegistryCleaner would handle this but no...

Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up and create numerous files, folders, and registry entries in various locations making it more difficult to remove. It is not uncommon for some anti-virus programs to not completely uninstall itself even after using the vendor's cleaning tool.
