    Anyway when you uninstall RC2 or RC1 , there will be a warning dialogue box
    which appears. In it will be a list of applications which will be affected
    by the RC removal. This applications are the one installed after RC has been
    installed. Here is my experience.
    1. install RC2
    2. Install AV software.
    3. Uninstall RC2, which causes my AV software to be unserviceable.

    I'm glad you're having no problems!!

    Remember that "all the software you've installed since RC2" probably
    includes some security updates. If you uninstall or "system restore"
    before installing the next RC you may remove more than you intend. :-)
    Before trying this manual approach, be sure you're behind a firewall.

    IMHO not necessary to do your second step... on my laptop it's had I think
    about 4? builds on that poor thing and I've never uninstalled the software
    that I've installed between each build. All have loaded up and

    all have unloaded without issue or affect to any programs.

    [as always everyone's mileage may vary]
