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

How do i uninstall avg 2014?


Sounds like you installed the AVG Security Suite instead of the AVG Antivirus Free. Go to Control Panel - Open "Programs and Features" and you should see the program listed there. Right click the program and choose Uninstall. Once uninstalled, restart your computer, download AVG Antivirus Free and install it.

Hope this helps...

I think that it had stucked on your computer.You can uninstall your avg anti virus by using its installation driver disc.First you put the disc on your cd drive and then avg install/uninstall shed will appear.now you can uninstall your avg.if you don`t have the disc then format your computer.that`s the only solution.

Kaspersky over AVG8


Even though you uninstalled AVG from the computer (I'm guessing using Add/Remove Programs), there is probabky some files and possibly a quarantine folder that is still on the computer that was not removed which is making Kaspersky think that AVG is still on the computer.

You can download and run an AVG Remover Tool from here: http://www.avg.com/download-tools

Also check C:\Program Files folder for an AVG folder, and even do a Windows search for AVG and remove the folders left behind.

And if you are comfortable going into the registry, you can look in there for left over AVG keys, but hopefully the AVG Remover Tool will take care of it all for you.

AVG 8.0


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..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.

I want to unsubscribe AVG from my computer but cannot (after unlimited aiiempts) please help


You may have to use a third party uninistaller such as Your Uninstaller 2008, or the uninstaller contained in Tune Up Utilities 2007 or 2008, etc... in order for a complete and thorough uninstallation of many third party softwares (these applications and similar ones are usually available for a free trial period if required). I am assuming you have had no luck using Windows Add/Remove Programs from within Control Panel to remove AVG?

Here's a link to a trial of Your Uninstaller 2008: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Your-Uninstaller.shtml
