This is 100% solution to your problem trust me on this one:

(Close AVG8 anti-virus first)

  • Download revo unistaller from the link below and install it.
http://www.revouninstaller.com/

  • Execute it and select AVG8 from list that appears, alt-click it and select "uninstall".
  • The AVG8 will automatically load itself and close your running programs (if you have any running), CLOSE AVG8, and let your Revo uninstallation process to carry on to completion.

Good Luck!

I have had AVG for a long time and it beats any antivirus i have ever had. but if you really want to remove it, use the add/remove programs, or go to the star menu, programs, AVG folder and select the UN-installer. once removed, then try again to install the new one. Make sure to select ( remove Virus Vault ) in the option when un-installing AVG.

If your still getting issues, go into C: and delete any remaing AVG system folders that may be left behind.

Good luck

I HAVE AN ACER LAPTOP RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA HOME EDITION WITH 3GBs OF RAM. WHEN I INSTALL KASPERSKY, IT TELLS ME THAT I NEED TO UNINSTALL MACAFEE WHICH I CAN'T FIND IN MY INSTALL/UNINSTALL PROGRAMS....


hi, remove the security center. then click start and go to your applications list and look for macaffee there. if it is listed click that and you'll get a list macaffee program components, including an un-install, use that. this should work. removing macaffee can be a real pain. as far as catching malware forget it, macaffee antivirus couldn't catch a cold. manufactures love to provide it on new computers and internet providers offer it free but it is real junk. now your kaspersky is a good program but it costs money and is far from perfect. i have been using AVG free since microsoft released XP back in 2001. like the name says it is free and has done it's job admirably for me and my clients. team up with good free antiadware like " IObit security 360" and your machine will be as well protected as your would be with most security system that have annual fees. try cnet's download.com to find your freeware.
hope this helped, aokcmpter

Since you have tried using Housecall,

Then download Spybot Search N Destroy.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:
Avira AntiVir

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,

My sisters A205-S5804 laptop keeps shutting down but only when it's processing files..If it's idle it sits there for hours


it may be overheating, when it processes files the proc gets hot i suggest a cooling pad of some type see if that helps, when it shuts down, is it hot? are you getting any messages or does it just shut down. try this: hit windows key +R and when the box pops up type eventvwr and check the system logs and see if it tells you why it's shutting down. if it's heat related it should say. let me know if you need any help

Removal of AVG8


Try bootin to safe mode by pressing F8 on turning on the system then try to uninstall by going into the control panel [Programs(vista)/Add or Remove Programs(XP)]

By doing this you will be able to uninstall the AVG anti virus.
Then restart and the system will boot in normal mode then install Kaspersky. Never have 2 anti virus in a system. Just a word of caution.
Cheers !

Avg 8 removal problem....


This could be because you did not follow a proper procedure for an anti-virus removal. Nevermind, follow these instruction:
  1. Download CleanUp utility from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301.
  2. Install it and run it
  3. Scroll down and select AVG products and remove them one after the other (if there are more than one)
  4. Restart the computer and install your new anti-virus program
Kindly get back if need any further help

Uninstall of software


Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.
