How to add Revo Uninstaller Free/Pro to the K7 Security products

To Know
Multiple products by K7 Computing (K7 Antivirus Premium, K7 Total Security, etc.) seem to detect Revo Uninstaller and Revo Uninstaller Pro as dangerous. This is a false positive! Revo Uninstaller Free/Pro are not malicious in any way.
To Know
We have contacted K7 Computing directly and requested that our products are whitelisted in their signature database. K7 Computing has refused to statisfy our request. Thus, any user who wishes to use both K7 Computing’s products as well as Revo Uninstaller Free/Pro on their computer needs to add the latter to the exclusion list of the former (described below).


  1. Open the interface of the K7 product you have on your computer by double clicking its icon in the System Tray.

    Please remeber that if you add the folder for the portable version of Revo Uninstaller Pro to the exclusions, and then you move that folder, you would need make the appropriate changes in the K7 software as well.
