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.

  • 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

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 to find your freeware.
hope this helped, aokcmpter

Personal experience with Anti Virus/Internet Security

Lets begin. For the past couple of time I have try many many program for security.
Differences between Anti Virus and Internet Security are pretty much self explain from the name.
Anti viruses are first-rate when it comes to offline scanning for example what ever is inside the system it performs well and its reasonable. While Internet security can manage together online and offline scans through out the time for example when you are surfing the internet it protects viruses that tries to come with the files you download it also helps when you use a chat client. So for short its the best security for the system since it can protect you no matter in what situation you are.

Now its time for me to share what paid Internet Security I currently use is the Kaspersky Internet Security 2011.

I have experience with these softwares.
Deepfreeze (Didn't use it but have seen its features and I know how it works)

For me I believe there is no best. It depends on you. When you get to try something that's the time you will start to feel how it performs for you. Although when I started using Kaspersky Internet Security I kind of got annoyed because of the pop ups that it gives when ever you install a software, game, or even run them. But I mean it gives total security right?

Now the best part about the Kaspersky Internet Security that any other Anti Virus or Internet Securities doesn't give me. Its called the Anti Banner

What does it do?
It removes every single advertisement on any site even especially annoying ads on Youtube videos or even on sites have it on the sides and sometimes even at the top. It removes it all. It also helps your pages load faster and safer and did you know that the ads on sites are also viruses sometimes? Because what ever you do while you surf on the internet it's been downloaded on to your system hard drive. That's the reason why I use a browser that can be easily set to "Never remember history" It helps you to save space as well keep it safe from sites having viruses and worms.

Here in my Country it costs $65 - $75 for three systems. And its one year/each. That's the problem its expensive. You can still go for the older version which is the 2010 and it still performs perfect and it has the Anti Banner option. It comes in single user or three users. (Didn't see the single user price)

Hope this helps. Cheers. And God speed FixYa.

I am not able to install kaspersky security software into my system, it says you have to delete avg8, i tried everything till now, avg8 is not in my system. how to i install this kaspersky or uninstall...

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.

Avg 8 removal problem....

hi iam sharu
The recommended procedure is a time consuming one. You must download the latest version of AVG from the website, and then run it.

1) Click on the following link and download AVG to your desktop

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.

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 assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from and select the older version.

Regarding installation of kaspersky


It means there are some applications that were not compatible.

It will list the incompatible softwares when after you select to install.

Uninstall them properly.

You have to remove using proper uninstallation tool.

Like even deleting the traces from the registry.

After this you wont be having any problems.

Good Luck.
