How to uninstall AVG 8.0 PDF Print E-mail

In June 2009, a member of the I-Network mailing list had difficulty uninstalling completely AVG 8.0 from their computer. Members from the list gave suggestions on how to go about uninstalling AVG 8.0 completely. If you have trouble uninstalling your AVG 8.0 antivirus, here are some tips that can help you.

The full discussion can be found here

  • Run Reg clean on the computer. The Microsoft version of this utility can be downloaded from http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/RegClean/4-239-1.html

  • Do a manual search through the registry, looking for all instances of the text "AVG", examining them and deleting those entries which you are sure do not belong there any more. NOTE THAT THIS IS A HIGH RISK ACTIVITY WHICH CAN LEAVE YOUR COMPUTER INOPERATIVE so be careful if you do this.

  • Go to start and run regedit, when it opens, HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE then look up AVG then delete that folder

  • Use free software called Revo Uninstaller

  • Tuneup utilities may help you force uninstall

  • Delete the files manually from the registry
