I had to use Revo uninstaller to remove it.

You might try using an uninstaller.

I use a free program called Geek Uninstaller. It also collects the remnants that some uninstallers leave behind.

According the the AVG website (Click Here), you can use the installation download to uninstall the product if you have trouble doing it with the Windows Control Panel. There is also a link to a removal tool, if that doesn't work.

I had to do similar gyrations to get Norton off my machines. Anti-Virus programs tend to be resistant to easy removal, and I suppose that's for a reason....

Sometimes, the program’s uninstaller will become damaged and won’t run.

In those instances, one can usually re-install the program and then run the uninstall.

Google has some suggestions if you’ve not been there yet.

Revo Uninstaller Pro. Highly recommended and it’s free.

I know this is a silly question, but did you toggle the program off before you tried to uninstall? Just a thought.

when I uninstalled it, it toasted my registry. Had to make up the new user accounts and copy files.
