AVG 8.0 I want to uninstall avg 8.0 so that I can install McAfee. It keeps telling me that installation has failed when I go into control panel and try to uninstall. I was having a problem with my computer when I wanted to download or open files it kept telling me I couldn't. I am not sure what the problem is but I do think it has something to do with the avg.

Hello,

Since that when uninstalling AVG you got a problem, then you have to uninstall it manually. first you have to boot your computer in safemode..(just press F8 at first boot you will be directed to boot menu) and then find or browse the program files in drive c: in there select the folder AVG or what folder your AVg is then delete it. after deleting that folder you have to restart your system in normal mode.

After rebooting click start and then select run: in run type "regedit" and then click ok You will be directed to this windows below.

search..AVG 8.0 - a2f1153.gif

click edit menu and select find: type "AVG" and everytime the search display about AVG then delete it..do the search until nomore AVG result as you click the search button.

that is the way unistalling manually.

after that you can restart again the system and then installa another antivirus.

if this not resolve the issue then probably you have severe error in the system..you need to back up your files and then format and reinstall the windows operating system.

may this help you.

Go to start and click on it then click on the search. Then in the box that comes up typ in Avg
and then click search. It will find any files left over by Avg. When it is done searching, right click where it says Ave and a box will open and click on open container for this file. Then that file can be deleted from there, do that for each file that comes up in your search for Avg. Also you may click on properties for those files to make sure they are a AVG file.

Unable to uninstall avg


Use the uninstal option in control panel but watch for AVG telling you it cannot be uninstalled. If that happens, install Advanced System Care from iobit and use their uninstal programme.

I purchased AVG but it didn't install properly so I cancelled the installation. Now how did I install the product I've already purchased? I have the license number.


Most probably it seems to be a low ram problem but you should match the specifications with your machine to find the culprit.
here are the specifications

Processor Intel Pentium 1.5 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 750 MB HDD Recommended system requirements
Processor Intel Pentium 1.8 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 1200 MB HDDI guess you lack something among them please verify them .
If you re still not able to resolve just comment with error message

Action failed for file avgtdix.sys: starting service....


There is a known issue between AVG 8 and Anniversary Edition of Ad-Aware which gives exactly this error, so if you perhaps just got that ad-aware, uninstall it too before trying to reinstall AVG.

Then run the uninstall/cleanup util for Avast because the Windows Add/Remove isn't good for uninstalling antivirus programs. Then try reinstalling it again. If you downloaded the installation package, then it provides the uninstall option. Disable Ad-Aware's Adwatch first! Run the AVG installer. Choose the uninstall option and follow the wizard. When you get to the part to remove user settings, select it. Restart your computer then... Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got and update it.
Restart Windows twice before you re-enable anything disabled earlier.

Should this not work and you get the same error, that means the original errornous installation is still not out of your system. Download the AVG remover from here:
http://www.avg.com/download-tools
Remove your AVG and reboot to make sure it is not there any more, and try installing again.

Let me know if the solution worked and if yes please rate me:)
