Hello, this is my first time posting. I am currently using AVG Antivirus 7.0, and I would like to also try out Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition 9.0. I want to uninstall AVG Antivirus 7.0, but I have heard horror stories from people who have said they were incompletely able to remove the components of AVG.

I checked the uninstall page on AVG website:


Has anyone tried this? Does this work as they say? Does it remove most/all traces from the Registry and Windows?

Could someone please provide me some information about this? Thank you very much.

By the way, I am using Windows 98. So I do not have a System Restore ability available.

With windows 98 you can use the scanreg /backup. It is a close cousin to system restore.

F8 from bootup gets you to the command promt. Choice 5 is command promt.

type :

cd windows <enter>

scanreg/? <enter for the help file>

scanreg /backup

name your file (up to 8 letters) .cab
such as rb0918.cab


AVG is well known and should uninstall fine. If your computer is infected or you are having other issues, however, this may not be true.

You can preform a free online scan of your computer for viruses & from Norton at:


look for Online Virus and Security Check link. The scan takes about a half hour depending on the # of files on your drive .

Not quite the answer you wanted, but it's a start.
