Need help in removing AGV-free version

Hello!

I have had AVG-free version installed a month right now (on my new computer) and i've recently bought F-secure for a better security (because it has never failed me and it runs faster than AVG :D  ).

So I started to unistall AVG and everything went good, it said that it was complete and that it would remove all remaining files after reboot...
That didn't happen, and now I have about 25% of all the AVG files left on my computer and I can't even delete the AVG folder. It says that the program or file is in use, but i've checked task manager and services and there is no AVG running at the moment. There are even driver files to it in the windows foler.

How shall I remove all the leftover so that I can install F-secure without any problems and that there isn't even a file of AVG left?

I use windows7 home professional 64-bit

(The unistaller can find the files that are left)

Thanks! :)

Should I use Regedit to remove AVG from the list and then install C-Cleaner?

Or should I try to re-install AVG and try to unistall it again?

Install revo free uninstaller!

Then reinstall avg, and uninstall it with revo uninstaller on the highest setting!

Then use the registry cleaner in ccleaner


It worked perfect :) 

I only had to install Revo-unistaller and delete the registery files and leftovers and AVg is gone!

Thank you very much! :sol:
