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

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.

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
