I installed AVG Mobile Free for Android a few weeks ago on my Galaxy Tab and two days ago I find out that althrough I uninstalled AVG, it has left a com.antivirus program installed on my tablet!!!

I said it't just a glitch so I searched the net for info on how to get rid of the AVG leftovers as the Uninstall button for this rogue application is greyed out. After 2 days of trying several methods, I got to the conclusion that this is impossible without deleting the whole device!!!
And now I read on this forum that indeed, uninstalling AVG is a tabu subject even for AVG specialists!!!

All I need to know at this moment is this:
Can you tell me how to uninstall ALL the stuff that AVG has put on my device
OR
I will see personally that this software to be declared MALWARE.

Please make me demonstrate that I do not talk in vain.

Hello Alexpro,

AVG cannot be uninstalled if you checked 'Enhanced Protection' in Advanced settings of Anti-Theft.

To uninstall it you have to untick it first.

Thank you

mobile avg pro..

OK I tried to follow your instructions but when I went to anti theft section I saw there was no enhanced protection and no advanced settings section of the app. I have a Samsung Galaxy s4 i-9500. so can you provide the instructions on uninstalling the app because it drains my battery.
