Standard and limited user accounts normally do not have the proper rights to make changes to Windows so always log into a Windows with a user account that has full administrator rights when installing any software including AVG.
Most antispyware, parental control and process monitor types of protection software can block the required changes when installing any program, so make certain to disable them when installing or uninstalling anything.
How to uninstall AVG:
- Download AVG uninstall/cleanup utilty and run it ( if running Vista or Windows 7: remember to right-click on it and choose "Run as Administrator"):
Update AVG when completed, restart your computer and then re-enable any protection software you disabled earlier.
* Some files or folders could be hidden by default. This can be changed in Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab -> Show hidden files and folders.
(The location and names can vary, depending on the operating system version).
