Hi,
And after you have tried what Joe recommended and you are still unsure, you can download and install nCleaner, do a 'Clean System' and a 'Clean Registry'. This will cleanup any 'orphan dll files' and delete any registry pawprints.
You can also 'Shred Free Space'. This completely wipes any traces of files, which can remain, even after they are deleted from the Recycle Bin.
Hope this is 'music to your ears'.

    Try this:
    Click Start button

    Go to Run and type "regedit" (type without quotes)


    a) use Ctrl + F and type AVG8


    or


    a) directly go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE key in the registry and you will find AVG folder, remove that.

You have to download and reinstall it, the first thing it will ask you is "do you want to uninstall the previous version" click yes and let it uninstall. The you have the option whether to reinstall it or not.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    Again Solution #1:

    Unfortunately, at this time Grisoft, the maker of AVG, does not have an uninstall utility for AVG. 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/...

    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.






    Solution #2

    When you are working on your computer and installing a new program, the installation suddenly fails. Now you are left with a partly installed program. You try to install the program again, but you are unsuccessful. Or, maybe you have problems trying to remove an old program because the installation files are corrupted.

    Do not worry. Windows Installer CleanUp Utility might be able to help. You can use the utility to remove installation information for programs that were installed by using Windows Installer. Be aware that Windows Installer CleanUp Utility will not remove the actual program from your computer. However, it will remove the installation files so that you can start the installation, upgrade, or uninstall over.

    Good luck, Joe

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 !

I am trying to install Kaspersky and I can't because it is asking to remove the program named AVG8. I tried to with the advice posted on your website but it still is not working.


The first thing you should be aware of is that running two (or more) anti-viruses is often a receipe for disaster. Never install Kaspersky without uninstalling previous installations of anti-virus software, it's not recommended by Kaspersky:http://www.kaspersky.com/faq?chapter=17070...p;qid=169326413.

General removal instructions:

1.Uninstall the anti-virus(es) you have installed via add/remove programsin the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You can also use "Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete anyfiles/folders still there after an uninstall. Another thing you coulddo at this stage, is to run a tracks-eraser to remove files not usedand just using HD space, two free tools are: CCleaner (both builds with the Yahoo toolbar and versions without this)

3.Now would be a good time to use a registry cleaner, there are manydifferent vendors, but the one which i find most thorough and safe is RegSupremerun it (use normalmode only, not aggressive), when finished scanningyou rightclick and select "All", then you click "Fix" at the bottom, itwill ask you if you wish to make a backup and you do, just to be safe.

Mostvendors make removal-tools for use after removal via add/removeprograms to remove registry entries/folders, you can contact thesupport of the AV in question for a copy.


Removing Norton (even when it is already uninstalled via add/remove programs)

Nortonremnants is often a source of problems when installing Kaspersky, theseproblems can vary from small and perhaps unnoticed by the user tryingKaspersky for the first time and therefore thinking that it is normalfor Kaspersky to be a little heavy because this is what he/she reads onsome forums, to very severe slowdowns prompting the user to perhapseither contact support or post here at the forum.

Well, the goodnews is that Norton make some very good removal-tools and if you followthe suggestions below, even if they may seem overkill to you, then abetter experience with Kaspersky can almost be guaranteed and withbetter overall system performance to follow in most cases too!

The"bad" news is that you have to uinstall not only Norton AV, alsoSystemWorks, firewall and antispam if you use any of these (these canbe installed again when everything is done, just not Norton AV ofcourse!), however your patience and hardwork will be rewarded with amuch better systemperformance.

If you had 2003-2007 installed you will need the Norton removaltool. You download the tool from here.

You are also encouraged to use a general registry cleaner like RegSupreme,this will find and remove a lot of things so don't be alarmed if thenumber of problems found after the scan is several hundreds, thisnormal, most of them is harmless, but there will also be some which isfrom old installations uninstalled long ago, just let it fixeverything, it will ask if you want to backup and you want this, justin case. Download a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows Script for XP .......or Microsoft Windows Script for W2000 (Vista users should skip this step), Norton sometimes messes with this during an uninstall, so you may as well update this too.

1. Now you uninstall Norton via add/remove programs in the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(Free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You may find folders from programs you have deleted long ago, you mightas well delete them while you are in there anyway. You can also use"Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete any files/folders stillthere after an uninstall

3. Now you run the Norton removal-tool.

4.Run RegSupreme (use normalmode only, not aggressive) and fix what itfinds. (rightclick after scan is finished and select "All", then click"Fix" at the bottom or rightclick again & select "Fix")

5. Reinstall Microsoft Windows Script and reboot. You're now finished and can install Kaspersky. (Vista users should skip this step)

I can't remove AVG8.0 from my computer I can't remove avg8, I have already uninstall avg8, but when I want to install Kapersky, the instalation is cancelled. Why is this happening?


Use the AVG Uninstaller that must have got installed when you installed the program.

Also, there may be an option to automatically delete the other anti-virus in the Kapersky Installer. I have done that when I was installing Norton 360. I had Windows Defender which conflicted.

It deleted automatically after I confirmed and Norton installed without any other problem. Actually Norton is better and more used worldwide than any other.

I suggest Norton AntiVirus or Internet Security.

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.

Good luck
