I really want to uninstall AVG Antivirus.  I am not sure if the Uninstaller in the Downloads section will work on this 2015 version.  It don't work and I want something else.

What you are referring to as an uninstaller is more accurately a removal tool which is intended to remove remnants left behind after uninstalling, or for a failed uninstall or failed reinstall.

The correct way to remove AVG is by using Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel, then to reboot when done.OPSWAT App Remover should work too.

I'm sorry, I meant to say that Add-Remove Programs did not work, the library was closing down and only had a few minutes to post.  I think I know the issue.  When I got this pc (recently) I Uninstalled AVG, then installed Panda AV, Chrome and tried to boot from a linux liveDVD later.  This thing did not work right from the start, even before all this, but the linux boot seemed to do the most damage, I had to do a forced shutdown and xp was doing a drive check at each boot after that.  Today I did a System Restore, and all seemed okay.  So I proceeded to Uninstall AVG in Add Remove Programs, but A-R P stalled out and could not close the dialogue box?  Now the system is all jacked up again.  Nothing works in the Control Panel etc.  I have another thread that is guiding me on a reinstall because of three other issues.  Rather than going on here I think I will just reinstall XP to save you all more work.  Here it is:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/565616/acer-aspire-3000-zl5/

Whoa! that's a nice tool Animal, I might have to try this just to see what happens.  It seems that all versions are free, is that because it is a beta?  I wouldn't even use but the first listed as I wouldn't know what to do with the rest! but tempting.
