Try reinstalling AVG first and then try uninstalling it. Hopefully by reinstalling first it will fix any corruption thats causing the uninstall to fail.

Why I cannot remove AVG in my laptop? The last time I tried to uninstalled and the process looked not to work so I turned off my laptop. When i tried to remove AVG, it does not work at all. So, I cannot...


AVG Antivirus is a popular security software that is available both in free and paid versions. There can be many reasons for you to uninstall AVG Antivirus from your computer. Some of the most common reasons are:

* You want to upgrade to the latest AVG Antivirus version and you are unable to do so without uninstalling the current version.
* The AVG Antivirus installation is corrupt and you want to uninstall and then reinstall it to repair the issues.
* You feel the AVG is slowing down your PC and you want to opt for lighter antivirus software such as Antivirus Plus.

If you cannot uninstall AVG Antivirus using the Add or Remove Programs utility available in the Control Panel, you may use one of the following methods to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system:

Using AVG Remover Tool

1. Open AVG Tools Download web page.
2. Here, search for and download the AVG Remover tool for the AVG software you have installed on your computer.
3. After the download is complete, use this utility to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system.

You may be asked to restart your PC a few times during the removal process. So, it is best to use this feature when you are not doing any other work on your computer.

When you uninstall AVG Antivirus software by using the AVG Remover tool, the following related files and folders are removed from the system:

* All AVG user
* Virus Vault content
* User files
* Registry entries
* Any other information related to AVG

AVG Remover tool removes a lot of data related to AVG from your computer. During this process, the chances are quite high that some essential Windows or user file is removed. This is the reason why, you must use this method only if you cannot remove AVG using Add or Remove Programs.

My AVG is conflicting with my installing Kaspersky.


you might not have uninstalled AVG .instead you could have deleted the AVG folder.
AVg components are still there in the registry.if you didnt uninstall it ,install AVG once more and uninstall it manually.
if its not working remove AVG components from registry
here are the instrucions:
To remove the AVG registry entries, open Registry Editor (Start-> Run-> Regedit). In the registry editor, navigate to the entries mentioned below,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG\Avg8

Right click on these entries and then delete them. If you are not comfortable about deleting registry entries, you can use a free registry cleaner. If you are using a 64 bit machine, then these are the entries to be removed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG\Avg8


Once these entries are removed, Kaspersky installation will be completed normally. Alternatively you can also use the AVG cleaner or Kaspersky removal tool for AVG8.

Initializing error :registry value is not of binary type


Sorry to here about your problems with AVG, generally Griftsoft (AVG) is a grate program, that is until recently.
I have run AVG for years, until they get bossy and BUSH you to Buy their Program. At which time, I decided to remove them and go elsewhere! But that's me, and others have their own opium.
1st. What operating system are you using.? XP or VISTA
2nd. Have you tried to un-install AVG ?
3rd. If the program is running, on the bottom right of screen, you should see the colored box (red. blue, green and yellow) Right click on it and delete.
4th. Next go to control panel and add or remove programs
5th. Find AVG anti-virus and remove.
6th. If you are running VISTA you may want to find your start-up folder and remove from that.
If all the above fails, drop me a email and I will explain removal using MSCONFIG.

Avg 8 removal problem....


hi iam sharu
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/0

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.

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
