So the other day I was trying to play a game (Trickster Online to be exact) and it wasn't working.
I looked it up a lot, and saw that a lot of people had a similar issue and that it was due to AVG seeing one of the files as a trojan or some other form of malware and so I couldn't play it.
I wanted to see if this was the case so I could find a way around it.
So I uninstalled AVG Antivirus (because using exceptions apparently wasn't working) and halfway through the uninstallation it froze.
I End Tasked it after a while, and when I restarted my computer it didn't work anymore.
The AVG folders were still there but all the icons had turned into generic ones, and it just seemed like a few random files were missing.
I tried to reinstall it, but at the end it said "AVG had 2 errors" or something and couldn't start the program.

So I was wondering, if there was a way to completely remove all of AVG and then reinstall it? And How to do that?
Or is there another way to fix this?
I don't like being unprotected when I surf the internet.

oh yeah and this was the error message. (there was only 1 this time.)

Local machine: installation failed
Error: Action failed for file avgmfx86.sys: starting service....
Error 0x80070002
