AVG will not uninstall

  Joe R 12:10 16 Aug 2005

further to problems i've had updating AVG anti virus, i've now got a problem uninstalling it.

The program says "cannot uninstall as program is not installed".

Has anyone had any experience of this.?

I've installed Avast just now, and used msconfig to stop AVG starting, but would like to be able to get rid of AVG.

Any pointers would be most welcome.

Try using Udvanced uninstaller (click here)
it forces the program to ununstall, its easy to use, this is a trial version though.

does the free trial have any limitations etc.?

Can you not re install AVG and try to update it,this may solve the problem of the updates and if it doesnt it amy solve the uninstall problem.

I was going to uninstall and reinstall, but this is about the third or fourth time, i've had to do this with AVG, so now i'd just rather get rid of it, and use another A/V.

Finally got rid of it, through msconfig and regedit.

Thanks all for the input.
