So I downloaded AVG 2016 and since I was getting errors while trying to update it, I decided to uninstall/re-install it. I was able to find AVG removal tool on their website, but for the 2015 edition only and not 2016. I used it anyway but I still see AVG in my PC although I can't see it anymore in Add/Remove programs. So I guess I've partially uninstalled it and don't know what to do now.

 

Also, my Chrome browser and Dropbox have been acting up recently so I'm worried if my PC is infected?

 

Please help! Tysm

These are the most current instructions...How to Uninstall AVG security products

If you want a comprehensive look at your system for possible malware, you should start a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

AVG is not better now. As it is stated in their terms, they can sale user data to advertising agencies to gain financial benefit. In free version, currently Avast is better now.

That statement has nothing to do with the issue of uninstalling AVG. Please keep your comments on the topic of discussion.

This is the common procedure of unistalling

    Go to Start -> Control Panel
    Click Programs and Features or Add or Remove Programs.
    Select AVG in the list of programs
    Click the Uninstall or Change/Remove button.
    Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the uninstallation.
    Restart your computer

If it is not working then take a look here

The link to the AVG remover tool takes you to the appropriate download page for that application.  Unfortunately the application fails with an error "The program can't start because avgsysx.fmw.1.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

 

See, the big brains at AVG have this all worked out perfectly.  Can't install AVG again - fails to install.  Can't run their own AVG Remover Tool until I reinstall AVG.  Errright!  Can you say circle jerk?

 

But thanks for the link though.

Or use Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium like I'm using right now. You don't really need 3rd party antivirus at all if you're not doing any foolish things on the internet.

The correct way to remove most Anti-virus programs is from within its program group Uninstall shortcut in Start Menu > All Programs or by using Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel. The AVG Remover tool is intended for a failed uninstallation.

I have tried the ways shown in this thread and on the AVG website. I've tried using the AVG removal tool and Revo uninstaller, but I'm unable to get rid of AVG Internet security. Although the program doesn't show in the Programs and Features list and the GUI won't start with windows, there is still an entry in the Programs List which will start AVG Internet security.

 

AAAAArrrggghhh!!! How do I get rid of this? Please help....

 

TIA.

If the recommended method of uUninstalling AVG via Windows Control Panel and the AVG Remover tool failed, then I would contact AVG Support.
