Just a note here: If you want to screw your computer up, all you have to do is "just play with the registry".

The remover should do the trick, otherwise re-install AVG then uninstall it in the proper way (having stopped real-time protection first). Even then it might be worth running the uninstaller to clear out anything left behind.

Once you attempted to remove the program incorrectly you pooched the uninstall routine too.

If re-installing doesn't solve the problem you may need to manually delete the program entry and then use a registry cleaner. Ccleaner slim is safe to use.

HOW TO FIX 0xC0070643 Error in AVG 2011. This will also work if you cannot uninstall an AVG PROGRAMME

Can't remove old avg applications because of this error then do not fret here is the answer.
Log onto your computer in Safe Mode. Right click on Start button and select explore. Scroll down to Program files and open and then scroll down to AVG Folder. Double click on this folder. You may see other folders with AVG 8 for example. if you right click on it and see if this will delete. (I had AVG 8 9 AND 10 ON MINE) One of the folders it will not let you delete it. Once you have removed the folder/s that can be deleted open up the folder that cannot. Delete all that you can in this folder either by deleting one by one or in little chunks until you are only left with a handful. These are the ones that will not delete until you do the following. Open up the Task Manager by right clicking on the blue bar at the bottom and select Processes. Now end the AVG Processes and then go back into the folder and delete the rest of the files. Once done you can then delete the AVG Folder. Close this down and then restart your computer and you will be able to install AVG 2011.

We last heard from the poster on 23 July so I doubt he will come back now and read this post. My guess is the problem has now been fixed
