Did you have AVG and Avast on at the same time?

I downloaded Avast closed everything installed it and got rid of AVG.

Make sure both are fully installed and delete all folders to do with both programs.

Redownload AVG and reinstall.

Thanks is Avast better than AVG?

I prefer Avast as it seems to be a little less intrusive and less resource hungry. That doesn't mean it is - only my impression of it. It has never let a virus through (not that I have received one via mail anyways for a couple of years).

Restored, tried to uninstall AVG language file failure, should I download it again and go over the top with it?

click here for another post on a similar theme, one of these uninstallers and RegSeeker should clear the system and permit loading of any new AV software.

In the unlikely event that you can't get AVG or avast to work, look at click here. But do clear out any trace of existing anti virus before putting on a new one.

I have Adnaced uninstaller and that won't shift it.

I found that Avast used up more memory so i
went back to AVG as i have a low spec machine.

Thanks everybody. I downloaded AVG again and installed over the top seems to be working fine at the moment.
