Service AVGIDsagent could not be stopped.

Specs: Windows Vista
Getting this error message when trying to download AVG Virus protection. Had the free version which Security Centre says is turned off but when I try to uninstall it saying it is not installed. Now cannot install any version as I keep getting this error message.

Service AVGIDSAgent could not be stopped. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to stop system services. What can I do? I am completely ignorant on this sort of thing and just want to get some protection.

I recommend using the uninstall tool for avg, and then reinstalling it. Sounds like this process is from avg. My guess would be a corrupted install.

Thanks for this. I have now used the tool and everything seems to have been removed.

I had the exact same problem. I found your advice via Google where the avg error message comes up as a suggestion after just typing "service avg" so I think it must be a fairly common glitch.
