In order for me to run ComboFix, I need to remove Avg. I've wanted to remove Avg for a while now, but every time I try, I get stopped and told there is a "watchdog" file ( avgwd), preventing the removal of the program, and that I need to verify permission to continue with the uninstallation. I can't locate any file by that name on my computer.
To compact the issue, my computer has got a registry issue that's preventing it from connecting to the Internet. I'm typing this from my IPad. I'm not sure what my next move should be.
My laptop is an HP 530.

Have you tried the AVG Remover? You can download it from HERE-#2 on the list

As for Combofix:

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.

You should read this before using Combofix on your own.

If you still have difficulty uninstalling AVG, download and use Opswat AppRemover.
