Despite my many attempts to uninstall the AVG 8.5 free edition, I am unsuccessful and very frustrated. I go throuh the uninstall process from the control panel>add remove programs etc and all I get is this error msg:

Installer initialization failed due to following error:
Error: @AvgErrorCode_0x0253 %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8"

I pretty much have no virus protection on my computer and was looking for a good free one and now the uninstall for this Microsoft is saying is the reason I can't install anything else.

Please advise...I have been dealing with this far too long and have become very aggitated.... AHHHH!!!! :huh: Thanks in advance!

Try this link TwinkleToes316: AVG Remover.

I have found Avast AV to be very good and it's free: How to Install, Configure, and Use Avast Antivirus.
