I have installed and uninstalled AVG 8.0. I wanted to get rid of AVG to use kaspersky but when i run the installation file for kaspresky it still picks up AVG 8.0,even though all AVG files have been removed. Is there anyway to resolve this?

In some instances normal uninstalling may fail, not work properly or result in continued detection by another anti-virus program after removal. Most anti-virus vendors provide clean-up utilities (removal tools) on their web sites to remove remnants left behind after uninstalling, or for a failed uninstall or failed reinstall. Remnants include related registry entries, files and folders created in various areas of the OS.

Use the link provided by Condobloke to download and run AVG Remover tool...then restart the computer.
