uninstall Antivir Desktop

I have Windows Vista 64 bit. Last year I installed Avira Antivir Premium and had no problems. Yesterday I installed Avira Premium Security Suite, and now I have no access to internet anymore.

I tried to uninstall, but there is a map which I cannot uninstall: C/Program Files(x86)/Avira/Antivir Desktop. I cannot delete it ("you don't have permission ...") and I don't see this program when I go through 'Control Panel' and 'uninstall a program'.

As I have no internet access I can also not download and re-install again.

What should I do??

I could now completely unintall Avira, but I still don't have internet access. However the computer shows that the connection is OK.

Hi vanstej,

Click the Start button and type cmd in the Start Search text box.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter on your keyboard and run the Command Prompt as Administrator and click Continue at the prompt.
Enter ping 4.2.2.1 and then press Enter. If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet.
