Please download and install Revo Uninstaller Free

    Double click Revo Uninstaller to run it.
    From the list of programs double click on The Program to remove (AVG)
    When prompted if you want to uninstall this program, click Yes.
    Be sure the Moderate option is selected then click Next.
    The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
    when the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next.
    Once the program has searched for leftovers....(be patient here ! ) click Next.
    Check/tick the bolded items Only, then click  DELETE 
    When prompted click on Yes and then on next.   
    put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
    when prompted select yes then on next
    Once done click Finish.

If you want to be sure. Read this please.

oh I definitely dont know how to use it.

That's what I figured when I saw the post so I jumped in before you do any damage. No disrespect intended.
 

if not put virus protection on.

You do not have 1?????  As soon as you finish removing AVG you need to put something on.
 
This is not bad for free.

If you ran ComboFix just to see what it does or finds, be aware that ComboFix was never meant to be used as a general purpose malware scanner like SuperAntispyware or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware which scan individual drives or different folders on a computer for malware.

If you have not already done so, please read ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

A trail version is generally the paid for version with all features available for use/testing during the duration of the trial period. When the trial period expires you either pay for a license key to continue, revert to a free version with less features or remove the product.

The fact that a product is a trial version alone really has nothing to do with not being able to download another and install another product.
