Uninstall programs

Could you let me know which antivirus you are using? Most antivirus applications will provide self-removal tools on their website.

I bought a pre-built pc a couple of years ago when I knew nothing about computers and it came with pre installed antivirus programs that I cannot uninstall.. I went into the settings in windows and tried to uninstall them but nothing happened when I pressed "uninstall" help?

Already done! Thank you for your help! I would've never thought of looking at their website.. Also, to remove norton I had to install "remove and reinstall norton" then go into advanced settings and choose to just remove it..
