Wot-ho chaps,
Ive got AVG PC TuneUp lurking in my pc and I cant get rid of it... I want to do a system restore to shift this and whatever else has appeared in the last month, but either that or something else prevents me. Ive tried System Restore on 12 dates so far and each time I get the message "...cant restore to this date...try another..."

Anyone any clues / solutions ? Im a silver surfer so I need answers in childlike terms...!!! I dont do PC speak !!!


Thanks

Hi ptsh01,

I recommend following the How to restore changes made to your computer by AVG PC TuneUp (it is possibe that System Restore service was disabled) and How to uninstall AVG PC TuneUp articles. What is the situation now?

I'd like to ask you for a Msinfo output if the issue still persists.

Thanks.
