Glenda wants to know how to get rid of AVG
How can i get AVG off my computer??
It appears that more and more once great free antivirus programs are following the bad example set by Norton and McAfee – beginning with turning into security suites first, and apparently now becoming darn near impossible to completely remove from your computer. Fortunately Norton and McAfee aren’t completely heartless – they offer a free uninstall tool so you can get their programs off your PC. Why don’t they just make an uninstaller that works from the Control Panel? We don’t know. Maybe they really don’t want you to remove it – but legally have to give you the option to remove it – or do they just want to make you jump through hoops so you’ll think twice about removing their program from your computer?
AVG, following the lead of its heroes Norton & McAfee, now offers an uninstaller that completely removes AVG from your computer – which it seems the uninstaller for AVG in your Control Panel/Programs/Remove a program menu won’t.
Here’s what the folks at AVG say:
AVG Remover eliminates all the parts of your AVG installation from your computer, including registry items, installation files, user files, etc. AVG Remover is the last option to be used in case the AVG uninstall / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.
All AVG user settings will be removed after the uninstall process is complete, as well as content from the Virus Vault and all other items related to AVG installation and use. You will be asked during the removal procedure to restart your computer. Therefore, please make sure to finish your work and save all important data prior to launching AVG Remover.
