I'm working on Windows XP Pro.  I thought I had successfully uninstalled AVG a couple of years ago and have since been using Avast.  However I get messages saying that AVG 2011 is still running.  Just got that again a few minutes ago when I was preparing to run ComboFix!  I downloaded the AVG uninstall program and ran it.  (Did that a couple of weeks ago too.  Also went into Program Files and removed everything I could find that related to AVG.)  AVG uninstaller says there is no AVG detected.  However earlier today Windows Security claimed there was more than one anti-virus running on this machine.  I have no idea where AVG is hiding if it is still running.  I'd appreciate it if anyone can help me with this.

 

Thanks.

Hello -

Just got that again a few minutes ago when I was preparing to run ComboFix! <- Bad move ! !

Running tools that are only specialist versions, can create problems like you currently have. (My Opinion)


Please note that there is also a Rogue AVG Antivirus 2011. This computer infection is named and should not be confused with the legitimate anti-virus program called AVG Anti-virus. Please read This Topic from Bleeping Computer.

 

If this is the legitimate version, please visit AVG Removal Site and select your version -

 

Thank You -
