My AVG can not uninstall, what should i do so that I can install the new version?


Boot in Safe Mode and do the uninstall from there - in normal mode the autoprotection is active and prevents all attempts to change the files of the program. and you can't disable that without extensive modifications of the settings . In Safe Mode the program is inactive so the autoprotection is off.

Wow. No, it should not take that long to do a restore. The problem is stopping the restore MAY brick the system. Your problem seems to have started with the ParetoLogic. It seems this program will not uninstall properly unless you kill it in task manager first. http://support.paretologic.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2222917-how-to-uninstall-paretologic-internet-security-
This is strange because most security program cannot be disabled from task manager. Once you installed AVG you had 2 antivirus running at the same time - if not 3, Norton has been known to not uninstall cleanly. They even make a special removal tool. Download and run the Norton Remove and Reinstall tool
If the restore finishes - great, if it doesn't and you have to shut down the computer, it should roll back when you reboot. That puts you back to where you started so follow the instructions to remove Paretologic, run the Norton Removal tool and just to be sure, run the AVG Removal tool because the install might have been corrupted. http://www.avg.com/ca-en/utilities

I am having AVG Pro. on my Vista. Now I con't use


Go to AVG's homepage and look for a removal tool. Uninstall the software and download Microsoft Security Essentials...It's free and perpetual. You may also consider upgrading to Win 7 or downgrading to XP. Vista is the reason many folks are back to XP and Microsoft's reason for creating Win 7.

My task manager has been disabled due to virus attack. help me


There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
  • In the Group Policy settings window
    • Select User Configuration
    • Select Administrative Templates
    • Select System
    • Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
    • Select Remove Task Manager
    • Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

My son has installed avg7.5 but i want it off. i tried uninstalling it but it said there is a technical fault and said to come on here could you tell me how to get it off or do it yourself please thanks...


First off: Why Uninstall AVG in the first place: AVG is the BEST AV program availible ! Why ? Because it's fast, easy to update, reliable and I'm using it since the day I got my PC 5-6 years ago. But nevertheless, as requested:

1.) Stop AVG services: To do this click on start, then on run and type in "Services.msc" without the quotes. A new windows will appear, with all the services running on the computer. Now all you have to do is to locate, right-click and "stop" AVG services.

2.) Disable startup options for AVG programs and services: To do this type in "Msconfig" in Run just as the "Services.msc" previously. Remember not to include the quotes. Navigate to the "Services" and the "Startup" tab and "uncheck" any AVG entries you can find.

3.) Close AVG open program files: Press ctrl-alt-del on your keyboard to open the task manager. In the task manager, navigate to the processes Tab. You will find all running processes on the computer. Sort the first coloumn by "image name" then right click and end avg tasks, usually named avg?????

4.) Deleting AVG from your machine: To do this, Navigate to this folder(standard): "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG7\" . Then select all the files in that folder and click "Shift-del" without the quotes. Confirm deletion. If error comes up, remove the first file from your selection by cntr+left click on the most upper file. Then shift-del again, until the next file "errors". Continue this process until you have reached the end. The reason for some files not wanting to be deleted is simple: Those files are still open, reside in memory and thus cannot be deleted !

5.) Restart your machine; Navigate to the AVG folder again after restart, and delete the remaining AVG files which are all closed now. Remeber to remove the $VAULT.AVG$ hidden folders, as they are the avg vaults.

6.) You have removed all traces and movement of AVG from your machine :(

Disabled task manager


try selecting the run option under the start menu. type in "gpedit.msc" and go to User Configuration, then Administrative Templates, next System, and next Ctrl+Alt+Deleve Options. Choose Remove Task Manager and double click the Remove Task Manager option. Disable this, and restart the computer. a shortcut for the task manager is Ctrl+Shift+Esc.
