The correct way to remove AVG 2011 is through its program folder via Start > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs
or Programs and Features
in Vista/Windows 7.
An alternative way is to download and run the latest AVG installation file. 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.
If the above does not work, you can download and use AVG's uninstall/cleanup utility (AVG Remover
) provided in the 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 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.
If you still have difficulty uninstalling AVG, download and use Opswat AppRemover
