Hi gang , haven't been here for a while . A friend had internet anti virus Pro.on her laptop . she has run out of warranty on the machine and wanted to remove IAPro and get AVG. she managed to remove the prog via add remove , but the request for renewal keeps reappearing and blocking any further internet use , I saw that the prog is still in program files but the UN-install file just flips to jpeg of the UN-install icon any help would be much appreciated.
she is running explorer and windows pro.many thanks in anticipation . mitch

You could download the program onto a flash drive and then try to install it from there onto her laptop
