  • Anonymous Mar 30, 2009

    I have tried that, it didn't work. I tried reinstalling, avg 8.0, then uninstalling, that didn't work. I have tried going to the regedit, that didn't work, I hace tried going to start all programs, avg, uninstall free, that didn't work. I tried buying a program over the internet to remove programs, that didn't work. (now I am going to have to fight with Mastercard to try not to have to pay for something that was suppose to be free, and wasn't and didn't work.) I am sort of stumped here. I don't want to restore my hard drive. Help.

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...

AVG makes Anti-Virus software.

I have the free version. I LIKE IT.
I also run the free version of Malwarebytes Anit-Malware, and use the free registry editor CCleaner.
Not 'bragging'. Can show you how to download, and use Malwarebytes, AVG, and CCleaner.

My AVG icon on my desktop screen shows AVG2013.
As for the other AVG icon I have no idea.
Does it have a yellow folder icon with a zipper on it, next to AVG?

Avg update for dell computer

It's probably not your fault. AVG has frequent update server outages, sometimes lasting days. If it's still not working Monday I'd remove AVG and install Avast ( or one of the other free ones ) and see if that will update. If so, AVG is the culprit. I gave up on AVG a while ago for just these reasons.

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 :(
