How To Completely Remove AVG Antivirus?

AVG Antivirus by AVG Technologies, is a very good antivirus program. However, there are times when you may want to uninstall. You may want to fix AVG by first completely uninstalling it and then reinstalling AVG again or when you want to try another antivirus suite. Also, this “how to” article will come handy when the normal uninstall procedure is not working for you.

Whatever be the reason for uninstalling AVG, below you will find both the normal procedure as well as the manual procedure for doing this:

  5. AVG will offer three options to choose from. Choose Uninstall to continue.Select Uninstall to continue
  6. Now, the wizard will ask you if you want to keep AVG Security Toolbar and LinkScanner or not. If you deselect the option, the wizard will further ask if you want to keep your search settings which were modified by AVG. Deselect it too to remove every trace of AVG.Remove AVG Security Toolbar and LinkScanner
  7. The wizard will now ask if you want to remove user settings and Virus Vault contents. Select both the options and click on Next.Remove AVG User Settings and Virus Vault Contents
  8. AVG Uninstall utility will now take some time to remove everything from your computer. After the process completes, the wizard will ask you to restart your machine. You should now restart to complete the process of removing AVG.Restart to complete AVG Uninstallation

Manual Uninstall (Complete Removal of AVG)

AVG provides an uninstall utility called AVG Remover which is specially made to remove AVG completely from the computer system. AVG Remover deletes everything related to your AVG installation, including registry items, installation files, user files, etc.

If the above procedure to normally remove AVG has failed repeatedly, AVG Remover is the last option to be used. Visit http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities. You’ll find both AVG Remover (32-bit) 2012 and AVG Remover (64-bit) 2012 in the download list. From the list, download the right AVG Remover version to your desktop. Download the 32-bit if you’ve installed AVG Antivirus 32-bit or download the 64-bit if you’ve AVG Antivirus 64-bit installed.

Open the command prompt from the Start Menu. Windows 7 or Vista users should run Command Prompt in elevated command prompt. To run Command Prompt (cmd) in elevated mode, right-click on cmd and select Run as Administrator.

Browse to the location where you’ve downloaded AVG Remover using the cd command. For example, if you’ve kept the file in your Downloads folder in Windows 7, you should type cd c:\Users\YourWindowsUsername\Downloads.

Now, type avg_remover and press Tab key to complete the filename. Press Enter. You will receive a warning message.

AVG Remover Warning Message

Click on Yes to continue removing AVG from your computer. It may need one or more restarts during the cleaning process.

AVG Remover Status

Once the manual uninstall process has completed, restart your computer. You can then go ahead and install another antivirus or install AVG again.

Note: If you’re still facing problem, please upload your avgremover.log file to your Dropbox account or any cloud storage service (if you’ve one).

        if u are using Vista it will be easier for u to remove AVG or whatever without going to control panel, all u have to do is open the run command
        step 2 type C:\application data
        step 3 Delete Avg folder
        step 4 type C:\program files
        step 5 delete Avg folder again

        if any of the files refuses to go off
        download unlocked from any site, it will enable u delete any software, file or document to refuses to go off.
        How to use the unlocker
        right click on the files that u want to delete and click unlock after installing the unlocker.
        select any option e.g delete, disarm(to stop all processing that is going on with that particular file.
        which u goodluck.

        For window7 and xp try using the control panel/delete it from C:\programs folder(using unlocker)
        which u goodluck

    It seems lots of people are facing problem with the uninstaller. Let me test the outcome in my test machine.

    It will take some time but I’ll post my results soon.

    Until then, I’ll suggest users to use Revo Uninstaller Free to remove AVG from their systems.

  • kira

    I have problems uninstalling AVG antivirus 2010 from my laptop

    can I use the antivirus removal utilities specified for AVG 2011 or AVG 2012

    • http://about.me/skmezanulh Mezanul

      Yes, you can use it.

  • Uncle Jimmy

    Using AVG’s uninstall tool does not remove AVG as homepage for browser, so it must not be removing the registry files. What other suggestion do you have?

  • vic

    The search page will always come up no matter what your search engine default. To get rid of it simply go into your settings and change the default sign on page. avg hijacks it in all browsers. I just changed mine to no default page, but you can delete the page address in the settings and put your own in.

    • http://www.mytechguide.org/ Mezanul

      Thanks vic for the tip. ;)

    I operate Windows 7 and cannot get AVG to remove. I first went into the program files and uninstalled. …still there.

    I downloaded and ran the remover — this is what comes up:

    413 Warn AvgDataDir param empty, but Remover found AVG DataDir @ ‘c:ProgramData\AVG2012\
    ‘, use this path as default

    I went there and I don’t know what do do? I read the thread above and I think I need to “unlock”? But I don’t understand where I get that

    I uninstalled AVG just a few days after I bought it on 4/30/2012. I would like to get my money back.

    Thank you for your article. I am still trying to rid myself of this virus or rather trojan that stole its way onto my machine. I am not happy about having to go to the web site of the virus creator to get help removing their disease from my machine though. I do not care how good you think it is, I did not install it, it came along as a parasite with something else and has been absolute hell to get rid of.

      It sounds as if your command prompt does not have administrative permissions. The removal tool requires such, so make sure you run it as an administrator.

  • uMARTH

    HOw the Hell do I remove this crap from my computer!!!!!! I’ve uninstlled it a dozen times and IT”S STILL SCREWING MY SYSTEM!!!!!!!!!

    • benjabean1

      What do you mean by “screwing up”?

  • Kristie

    Worked perfectly for me. Thank you.

  • sharon davidson

    having used avg with no problems i have just used the 2013 version for a month i then decided to buy it only to find it wouldnt let me download or remove the old version that no longer worked deadlock so after phoning help line being told it was viruses on my computer which strangely were not there when i scanned i tried all i was told including a remote session where they convinced my hubby 120 pounds would get them to remove the problem and then sell me the new version i said no went online and found a chkdsk was recommended i did it still couldnt download so i tried to ignore avg and downloaded mircrosoft security sucess i am now covered and guess what it was FREE tell avg to get lost it apears to be a scam to get money out of its loyal customers, wouldnt ever use again am now chasing for a refund of my 2013

  • MICHELLE

    Just want to say Thank you for the info it really helped!! I was going crazy not being able to remove this AVG. Tahnk you again

  • ron

    How do I remove AVG from Windows xp ? The instructions are for Windows 7 and Vista.

    • http://www.mytechguide.org/ Mezanul

      The istructions are also valid for Windows XP. :)

      Where are you facing problem?

  • ron

    The problem is when I try to use the Windows add/remove tool. AVG shows it’s loading install information, rather than uninstall. It then displays a window that says it can’t detect the file that gives permision to remove AGV…I don’t understand, as I am the original of the computer and have every right to remove what I want. Sorry for sounding stupid, but I don’t know how to do “Open the command prompt from the Start Menu. Windows 7 or Vista users should run Command Prompt in elevated command prompt. To run Command Prompt (cmd) in elevated mode, right-click on cmd and select Run as Administrator’. What exactly is the command promt, as I am having trouble finding it on the start menue. Thanks.

    • http://www.mytechguide.org/ Mezanul

      In Windows XP, simply press Windows Key + R to open the Run… dialog box. Type cmd and press Enter. It will open the command prompt.

      Hope it helps. :)

      • ron

        OK, I’m in. The screen now displays ” c:/Documents and settings/Ron” What do I do now ? That’s the only choice, the rest of the window is blank.

      • ron

        I decided to save the AVG removal tool to my desktop. I just clicked on “run” and it did it’s thing. AVG seems to be completely removed from the computer. No sign of it on my desktop or in the “add/remove” file. Thanks for all the help. I will get back to if AVG returns.

        • http://www.mytechguide.org/ Mezanul

          You are welcome! :)

      • ron

        Me again. I thought AVG was gone, but not so. I did a search on the file name” AVG”. It found 21 files that AVG was connected to. I simply highlighted them all and deleted them. I then emptyed my “dele box” to get rid AVG once and for all. Hope others who have run the AVG removal tool and still have unwanted files, can learn from this.

  • ney

    I did everything to the warning message and then I click on yes but it didn’t remove AVG!

  • Jake Nolan

    I’m confused. I ran the remover successfully and it removed the current AVG from my computer but when I do a search for AVG again, I still come up with AVG files. AVG10, AVG9, AVG, AVG Secure Search, blah… I just want all traces of AVG gone from my computer so I can install a fresh copy of it.

    Please help!

  • Jake Nolan

    I ran the tool successfully but for some reason when I do a search in programs for AVG, I still get AVG files such as AVG, AVG10, AVG9, AVG Secure Search, etc. I just want AVG wiped clean from my PC so I can do an entirely fresh install, otherwise I’ll use another program.

    Please help!

  • IJHM

    How long does this thing take? I ran it and it hasn’t done anything different since I ran it 10 minutes ago… Please help :(

  • Jake Nolan

    How long does it take to get a reply? I’m still waiting for an answer as to why, after “successfully” running the removal tool, there’s still AVG files in my computer, not including the tools themselves.

    Hi hope you can help I have tried to delete the free version of AVG through the normal uninstall channels as well a through safe mode. I am also prevented from dowloading windows updates or reinstating my normal firework(alhtough we did not close it). My last attempt I got the blue screen of death and I am now worrried my whole system has been compromised.
    HELP!

  • Sherzad

    I uninstalled Free AVG and installed Free Avast plus Free Comodo Firewall instead.Now my computer is much slower. I thought it would be faster when I uninstalled Free AVG. Imagine my surprise when I searched in my computer with search term avg and 148 files were found! Can I remove them all without it harming my computer? The file names all begin with avg… I have no idea what they are. Thank you for any information you send me.

    • Deb

      I have the same problem…after searching, I found close to 80 files.

  • Denlyn

    It’s funny you know. AVG is perhaps the worse program I have ever come across and I have been a computer technician for near on 30 years and to remove AVG is the worse experience anyone could have. I did a test on 3 of my workshop computers with AVG installed and then removed it. It failed on all 3 computers. I downloaded the removal tool and all of the computers, it did it correctly with no sign of any AVG remnants. All the people having problems must be doing something wrong so I redid the entire tests and then used REVO uninstaller. As I have the full Pro version, I downloaded the 30 day trial version which is fully operational and it did it in half the time all for free. As for a free internet suite, use Free Comodo Internet Suite. Not a resource hog and a very quick updater. Your call kiddies.

  • Lauren

    Along with everyone else .. omg .. I am so annoyed with AVG. Why in the world would a company/program think that we want our home-page replaced by them? I’ve talked with them, used every available option, none of which worked, and still cannot get my home-page back. (I’ve got the bing-search-engine-page as a home-page now) I’ve read everyone’s thoughts here, and appreciate everything that’s been said, but AVG still is ‘in charge’ of my computer and internet. The AVG download gives me the message that “this is not a valid WIN application” and so I can’t run that. I followed Ron’s suggestion and did a search and then deleted all files, but still the home-page won’t let go. Any ideas or help? I’m going to need an “Excedrin budget” by the time I figure this out. Bad reputation AVG .. bad-bad.

  • mbabs

    It seems that I still have AVG6 installed on the computer and can’t find the tool to remove it…..which I had already uninstalled through the control panel. Also if you would be so kind, how do I get rid of the AVG tool I downloaded to remove other versions, i.e. 2013, 2012

  • Matt

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/c91adomen6i6p35/avgremover.log

    Hi – AVG blocks soe of my Waves VST operations within my recording software (Nuendo). I have tried the remover to get rid of whatever logs are blocking the use, but no good so far. I’ve also tried un-installing all related programs, but again no joy.

    I feel my only option is my last – to wipe the hard drive and start again, as I cannot work without access to these VST’s.

    Any help / advice will be greatly appreciated.

    KRs, Matt
