How do I unistall AVG 8.5? I was on the phone with my DSL provider because I get free anti-virus installed with them. They tried to uninstall it and I tried and it says an error occurred and can't uninstall AVG 8.5 Any suggestions how to do this?

shows you how useless ISP provider techs are...they don't know squat, all they do is read manuals..LOL.

Download revo uninstaller and it will let you clean out all registry items from AVG, much better than the AVG uninstaller.

If you are getting McAfee or Norton free from your provider, I would say to NOT install either of them and maybe try Avast free, much better protection with automatic updates daily and NO scheduled scans necessary as it scans in realtime while you are online. Best real-time protection on-line.

I google searched your suggestion and several places came up. My McAfee warned me when I tried to download one. Can you give me an exact safe site I won't have to worry about. I will not risk a worm or virus, which I think AVG 8.5 has already done to my computer, I am having problems I didn't have before. thanks

Like I said, McAfee is not too good because revo is a legitimate program.

Well what end up working was for me to reinstall AVG and then uninstall it. It would not let me uninstall on the first try and before it would completely uninstall I had to answer a short survey why I was uninstalling it, but I got it off my computer after all that. Hope this helps someone else with this issue in the future. I learned more about computers through all this.
