    From the ClamXav site FAQ:


    22. How do I uninstall ClamXav completely?

    First thing to do is quit ClamXav Sentry (if you use it) and make sure it's not set to launch at log in. You will then need to find the ClamXav disk image which you downloaded when you installed ClamXav (or download the current one again) as you will find an uninstaller application on that disk.

    The uninstaller will remove the engine and any schedules you've got set up. All that's left is to drag ClamXav.app to the trash.



    See this to uninstall MacKeeper.

    For faster, more efficient answers to questions like this go to the ClamXav Forum.


    It depends on which version of ClamXav you have. If from the AppStore, you uninstall it like all other AppStore apps as explained here. If from the web site, then BGreg's answer is correct.
