However AVG 8 can be troublesome, so here are two tools.
Kaspersky (to be used AFTER an uninstall of avg to clean up the registry)
Information and download for Kaspersky's AVG removal tool can be found here
The records of AVG8 in the system registry are identified by the Wizard as a fully installed and functioning anti-virus AVG8 although the product has already been uninstalled. As a result the Configuration Wizard asks to manually uninstall the incompatible software and interrupts the installation.
To resolve the situation you should do the following:
1 download the archive avg8.zip (below)
2 unpack all files from the archive avg8.zip into one folder
3 run the file KLeaner.exe
4 wait until the utility finishes its work
5 restart your PC
Grisoft's AVG remover (again, to be used AFTER an uninstall of avg to clean up the registry)
AVG Remover utility removes all parts of AVG installation on your computer, including registry items, installation and user files on your disk, etc. AVG Remover is the least option to be used in case the AVG uninstallation / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.
All AVG user settings will be removed after the uninstallation, as well as the Virus Vault content and other item related to AVG installation and use. During the removal procedure you will be asked to restart your computer. Therefore please make sure to finish your work and to save all important data prior to AVG Remover launch.
Information and download for AVG Removal Utility can be found here.
