The correct way to remove AVG 2011 is through its program folder via Start > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs
/ Programs and Features
in Vista/Windows 7.
If for some reason the AVG uninstall failed using the normal method of Add/Remove, download and run the latest AVG installation file as described here
. As noted on that page, do not use the AVG Removal tool which is intended for versions prior to 2011. When the AVG Installer windows appears choose the option to Remove
and click Continue to allow the AVG 2011 uninstaller to run. Restart the computer when done.
As a last resort you can use the uninstall/cleanup utility (AVG Remover) provided in AVG 2011+9.0+8.x Uninstall/Re-Install Instructions
. After restarting and removing the folders, stop where instructed to Stop here if not re-installing
AVG Download Tools: AVG RemoverIMPORTANT NOTE
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.
: Before removing your existing anti-virus
, you should download and save the setup file for the anti-virus you are going to replace it with. After doing that, disconnect from the Internet, uninstall your current anti-virus, reboot and then install the replacement. Reboot again to ensure it is working properly before reconnecting to the Internet.
