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

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/us/frt/0

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.

If you have windows 7 or 8, remove AVG and install Microsoft Security Essentials. It is better than AVG and really for free.

AVG Antivirus is a popular security software that is available both in free and paid versions. There can be many reasons for you to uninstall AVG Antivirus from your computer. Some of the most common reasons are:

* You want to upgrade to the latest AVG Antivirus version and you are unable to do so without uninstalling the current version.
* The AVG Antivirus installation is corrupt and you want to uninstall and then reinstall it to repair the issues.
* You feel the AVG is slowing down your PC and you want to opt for lighter antivirus software such as Antivirus Plus.

If you cannot uninstall AVG Antivirus using the Add or Remove Programs utility available in the Control Panel, you may use one of the following methods to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system:

Using AVG Remover Tool

1. Open AVG Tools Download web page.
2. Here, search for and download the AVG Remover tool for the AVG software you have installed on your computer.
3. After the download is complete, use this utility to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system.

You may be asked to restart your PC a few times during the removal process. So, it is best to use this feature when you are not doing any other work on your computer.

When you uninstall AVG Antivirus software by using the AVG Remover tool, the following related files and folders are removed from the system:

* All AVG user
* Virus Vault content
* User files
* Registry entries
* Any other information related to AVG

AVG Remover tool removes a lot of data related to AVG from your computer. During this process, the chances are quite high that some essential Windows or user file is removed. This is the reason why, you must use this method only if you cannot remove AVG using Add or Remove Programs.

AVG wont work nor will my laptop


Looks like a certain toolbar feature was included with the AVG that wants to keep starting. Go to Start button, then Control Panel. In the control panel, click Classic View on the left, open up Internet Options and click the Programs Tab on the top of the Internet Options Box that opens up.

Then click the Manage Add-Ons button. Beside the word "Show:", check under each option from the dropdown menu (Add-ons that have been used, Add-ons currently loaded, etc) and in the box below the Show menu, left click to highlight anything that says AVG, then click the round button near the botton to Disable that add-on.

Also check your Control Panel > Programs And Features for anything that mentions an AVG Toolbar as it was possibly separately installed and has it's own Uninstall Listing in the Programs and Features.

If those don't help, you can try this:

You can try to download and install the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Download and install the Cleanup Utility, then start the program from your Programs list.

***Be careful with this tool...you do not want to remove the wrong things or use the Remove All button, or no/most programs will not work anymore***

After you start the program, browse down the list and anything you see listed with AVG, left click to highlight the item then click the Remove Selected button at the bottom.

Hopefully this removes any traces of the installed AVG.
