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 :(

Printer says it offline


It probably changed its IP address. Try uninstalling its driver and re installing it. Some smart drivers automatically detects their printers once connected on a router.
Also check connection from device manager .....

Please try this. Run the install disk/web installer -> select Support -> select Uninstall. If Uninstall initializes, reboot your computer after the process finishes. Then reinstall using the new driver.
If the "Uninstall" option is not available, it would be best to contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.
NOTE: MAKE SURE TO USE THE PRINTER DRIVER COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR COMPUTER'S OPERATING SYSTEM.

I can't uninstall Microsoft Office.


Can you uninstall? When you installed 2007 did you keep the installation files on the HDD? If possible, I would get Perfect uninstaller. If you need I can and am willing to provide a copy to you for this purpose alone. Just tell me if you would like me to do that.

Computer crashed


that is a memory dump, try to remember what hardware or software did you install or uninstalled recently, if you can log-in on windows try uninstalling or reinstalling the hardware or the software. if it fails, run the windows recovery on the cd and repair the windows installation.
