F-secure exchange removal issue

WE have recently removed f-secure from the exchange server and domain controller. (windows 2008 DC and Exchange 2007).  I then installed AVG professional.  This caused many problems with the Domain controller after bootup - the problems consisted of a grey screen with a mouse cursor,  the domain controller would not boot and would stay in this state.  I then discovered that Registry kets are left in via F-secure,  After some research I found the keys and removed them.  This has solved the Domain controller issue.  However the Exchange server still tends to have this issue but less frequently (about 2-3 days).  the only cure is reboot, which is not acceptable.  Does anyone know which additonal keys are left when the exchange snap-ins for f-secure are removed?  or what else could be causing this issue?

Many AV tools don't properly uninstall if you use the standard uninstall feature supplied either directly through the app or via add/remove software. For this reason most manufacturer's of these tools provide a separate removal utility you can download from their site, at least Symantec and Avast! have such removal tools. It is very likely f-secure has such a tool too, so I advise you to visit their site and look for such a tool, download and run it (check the instructions, often it has to be run in safe-mode).

No server removal too - only one for the clients

Had to go through the Registry, now working fine
