I'm trying to install a paid subscription of Macafee and it says I must remove AVG 1st. I already removed AVG. Also, I ran ccleaner and cleaned out all temp files and prefetch data. I need to know how to removed all remnants of AVG please. Thanks very much.
The best way to do it is to use the AVG removal tool:http://www.avg.com
take the spaces out of the above link
The best thing to do is to remove cleaners, sweepers, fixers, scanners, etc...and stop using all that stuff.
multiple security programs like that are going to cause problems...
TURN OFF anti virus programs and firewall, including shutting down windows defender if applicable.
Then delete from the programs list, any all security conflicting muck programs.
Then load professional all in one anti virus, I do not recommend the product that you planned to install. Is it too late to get your money back?
Activate, update, scan entire system with your professional security such as: Norton 360, Panda Internet security
When you are done, make sure the firewall and antivirus are turned back on.
Another acceptable technique:
push control alt delete and bring up task manager, click the processes tab
find the AVG or other offending processes running on the list
click the process and click shut down, hopefully the process will stop manually
after you stop the process, you may then delete the application in the usual manor.
this may be especially useful for programs that refuse to delete...
