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.
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.
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.
