AVG 7.5 won't go away...

So I'm trying to uninstall AVG 7.5 but whenever it gets to a certain stage on the uninstaller, it freezes. An now to add to it, it won't even run. As always help much appreciated.

Reboot into safe mode, try uninstall again, if it doesnt work then delete the install folder manually, open regedit and search for remove all keys for grisoft and avg, reboot back into windows, install 8, job done

Re: AVG 7.5 won't go away...

what ex0 said, spot on

Safe mode, un-install should work

If you still get stuck or not sure how to edit the registry
just ask m8

This failing
Try what Mole said

Re: AVG 7.5 won't go away...

It was actually intended to be a relatively sensible suggestion.

You can spend hours trying to figure out why a particular piece of software is misbehaving. A format and rebuild from scratch is often the quicker solution, especially if you have a basic ghost image to just dump on the machine. It also gets rid of all the detritus left by crappy uninstall routines.

Re: AVG 7.5 won't go away...

Fixed with the safe mode method. Might have to start creating ghost images... just to be on the safe side.
