Want to uninstall AVG

September 5, 2011 at 14:26:54
Specs: Windows Vista
I can't remove the damn AVG free addition - I go to uninstall and can't remove the AVG off my computer. I hate that thing popping up. It's a virus and I need it off my computer.

Try Avast if you don't like AVG, it's free too. Maybe you really have virus? Now to remove AVG, they have a removal tool for stubborn removals, make sure you download the one for your version.

If that fails download Revo-uninstaller, and it should remove any remnants.

You must ALWAYS stop an AV running at startup before you attempt to uninstall it, otherwise it's a bit like letting the air out of your tyres while you are driving the car.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it doesn't work, try formatting the computer and reinstall Windows operating system. This will also help in removing the virus.

Hope this helps.

No need for reformat. I think the poster was referring to AVG as being (like) a virus.
