Difficulty in deleting a folder

Hi.
I am running Vista Home Premium (god what a crappy OS) and I am having difficulty in removing a folder. The folder in question is AVG. It is no longer running but I cannot delete it from the programs folder. I have tried file assassin but without success. Whilst it is doing no harm it is taking up space and I want to get rid of it. Is there anyone out there who can advise?
Thanks in anticipation.

If you cant remove it through Add/Remove Programs within the Control Panel then just delete the folder & then through Search click to find any AVG files left over?

You could try unlocker:

but if that does not work (which may not if File Assassin has not)you may have to go through the process of re-installing AVG - and part of the way through the install you should get the option to install/repair or un-install. You would un-install at that stage.
