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 !

How Norton Anti-virus software work


<p>First you have to install any one anti-virus software and make it ready with online update, and then scan your computer with that anti-virus software. Reliable anti-virus software features a scanner equipped with the technology required to detect and eradicate viruses, worms and other members of the malware family.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Viruses have many strategies to infect your computer, like avoiding detection from protection software. To prevent these virus strategies and protect your computer anti-virus software also has some methods, like Norton anti-virus use Signature base and Heuristics-base detection. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be used. It can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files.<br> <p> <br> <p>Norton anti-virus has many other features, which it upgrades from version to version, like Sonar protection. SONAR examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious. Another feature is Norton insight. It is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact. Symantec antivirus can interaction with rogue software, actually these type of software are nothing but a misleading program, it always rebranded and cloned of its previous version.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-viruses have features like anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware which is used to detect and remove viruses from your computer, whenever you scan your pc with this anti-virus software.

<p>Anti-virus software is a unique software program, which is used to prevent, detect and remove malicious programs, including but not limited to computer viruses, computer worm, Trojan Horses, Spyware and Adware.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>The primary method of preventing the propagation of malicious code involves the use of anti-virus software. Anti-virus software is an application that is installed on a system to protect it, and to scan for viruses as well as worms and Trojan horses. Most viruses have characteristics that are common to families of virus. Anti-virus software looks for these characteristics or fingerprints to identify and neutralize viruses before they impact you.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>There are many types of known viruses, and new ones are added all the time, so in this situation without anti-virus software your computer will be at great risk. There are different types of anti-virus software, some of them use basic technique to detect and remove viruses and malicious codes from your pc.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>On the other hand some anti-virus software uses its own unique features to protect your pc. Many known anti-virus software uses some very useful method, like Signature base detection and Heuristics base detection to detect viruses and malicious programs, and uses other methods and techniques according to their features. As new viruses added almost every day, anti-virus software companies also upgrade their anti-virus protection products, they launches their new version of antivirus software within very short period of time to provide users maximum protection from most recent threats.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>So if you are using any anti-virus software, it is recommended that you upgrade it and its virus definition regularly to be protected from viruses and malicious programs.

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
