How do I remove non-Microsoft security apps?


We recommend using Microsoft Security and uninstalling non-Microsoft security apps.

Some non-Microsoft security apps are slow to pick up on our improvements aimed at keeping you protected.

Follow the prompts and then restart your computer.


If the non-Microsoft security app remains, it can be because it is poorly written, conflicts have been caused by installing multiple non-Microsoft security apps, a virus or the computer has become corrupted. If this happens, look on the vendors site for a Full Removal Tool. We recommend not doing any online banking until your computer is secure.
