Re: cannot uninstall avg 8 completely
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.

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
you might not have uninstalled AVG .instead you could have deleted the AVG folder. AVg components are still there in the registry.if you didnt uninstall it ,install AVG once more and uninstall it manually. if its not working remove AVG components from registry here are the instrucions: To remove the AVG registry entries, open Registry Editor (Start->
Run-> Regedit). In the registry editor, navigate to the entries
Right click on these entries and then delete them. If you are not
comfortable about deleting registry entries, you can use a free
registry cleaner. If you are using a 64 bit machine, then these are the
entries to be removed.
Kaspersky tells you whether this is because at some point that was
installed on the PC AVG8, but is unlikely to be removed either. I
recommend you look for the installation of AVG8, install and then
uninstall icon from the Add / Remove Programs control panel. This
should eliminate all traces that may remain in the system of AVG.
After this reboot the PC and can install Kaspersky without any problem.
2) Double-click on the downloaded file to run it 3) AVG will present you with three options to choose from. Choose the Uninstall option to completely uninstall AVG
Add/Remove Components - choose if you want to add/remove some components or reinstall the entire AVG program Repair installation - this option repairs or reinstalls missing or damaged components of AVG Uninstall - this option removes the AVG program from your PC 4) Once the uninstall has completed, restart your computer. You can then proceed to install another antivirus or install AVG again.
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.
just download the trial version of kaspersky antivirus its free and scan your conputer its a trial version for just 30 days if you want a full version antivirus then go for avg 8 my suggestion is for now install kasperky n after the trial period install the avg 8 to download kaspersky internet security click the link below
