I have been having some fake antivirus pop-ups, normally I run anti-malware, spybot search and destroy, and finally combo fix. Usually this works great for me. This time though, combo fix tells me I need to stop avg before running it. I've tried unistalling avg through add/remove programs, and through the startup menu. Nothing has worked. I even downloaded a program called avg remover.. And it didn't work either!

I'm not really looking for virus removal help, just some suggestions on how to remove avg completely.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You shouldn't be running Combofix on your own.

As for AVG removal run AVG Remover: http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities
