I installed the free version of avg anti virus. Have not been able to uninstall it since. Avg does not help in any way. No support unless you buy their software. Who in their right mind would buy from people who are creating problems?
I took it to geek squad to have removed. They failed to do it, but did manage to sell me another anti virus that can not install until the avg is removed.

Beware of avg!!!

    On April 25, 2017 I was charged $64.99 for renewal of internet security. I did not order this, I do not want it as I cancelled AVG over a year ago. The invoice number is [protected]. Please issue a credit to my paypal account.

    The transaction number is 9r919654ll146881v. The company is AVG eCommerce Limited. Charge was made on April 25th through Paypal with whom I have canceled my account as of today. Issue me a refund. for internet service protection that I did not order. The in voice number is [protected]. I don't know how much more you need and feel that this is a stall. I will contact the Better Business Bureau if this is not resolved
    post Haste.

    I purchased AVG Tune Up on March 20, 2017. When I activated the software using the Activation Code: GSE2-X1433757-645E, I was told that I have 117 days left on this subscription. The information on the box says I have a 1-year subscription. Can you correct this problem?

    I was charged today $64.99 by AVG for renewal AVG internet security which I did not authorize. Invoice number [protected], on April 25, 2017. Please issue a credit to my Paypal account. I had AVG over a year ago and cancelled their services at least a year ago. I have never asked for their services to be renewed and do not want it.

    On September 26, I was charged $5.26 which corresponds to my annual AVG membership fee. Then I was charged $5.26 again on September 28. This has caused me an overdraft fee of $35.00. My email is [email protected]

    Last week I cancelled any further transactions with yourselves. You reimbursed £34.99 via my bank account. I have now received another email informing me you have taken £72.99 via my Paypal account. This needs to be reimbursed and the issue regarding any further transactions to be stopped. If this isn't resolved I will need to take legal advice.

    AVG is garbage Aug 11, 2010

    Same complaints and problems with AVG. Had to reset pc back to an earlier checkpoint to even get access.

    They have a program specifically to remove AVG in both 32bit and 64bit versions that the chat rep provided in a few seconds. Created Oct 2009. It seemed to work, as least so far.
    File name is "avgremover64.exe" for my pc. Even had a complaint form to fill out though it disappered in a few seconds as the mandatory reboot occurred. What a surprise.

    This software acts much more like a virus than an antivirus. Anyone have long-term problems after installing it?? I'm thinking at this point the "Free" edition may have Freely downloaded my hard drive but not sure yet. DO NOT BUY OR DOWNLOAD. PIECE OF CRAP!

    Hope this helps!

    To tell you the truth, to me it seems pretty normal to NOT get help for a free product. For example I am working for money, ain't you all? Would you start doing your job free of charge? I don't think so. However I am pretty sure that you can get help with AVG free here:

    If you have a trial version or a paid product, you should contact them directly. Follow this form:

    If you can't find these items in "Add / Remove Programs" then
    1) START > Run: type "msconfig" then click the "services" and "startup" tabs and see if you find anything related to these anti-virus softwares. If so then UNcheck them and then click "OK".
    To get these software off of your machines permanently then download and install "C Cleaner" (it's free and trusted). Run it but DON'T delete anything yet. Look for items that have to do with AVG or Kasperski, select JUST them, and then let C Cleaner remove them from your registry.
    You can also search on the internet for "How to remove AVG" for specific instructions.

    You Guys are right on they are the worst I have ever dealt with. The software won't uninstall I can' install Kasperski and avg refuse to support me because I want a refund
    Lowlifes and the worst viral mongers I have seen
    Sadly I used an earlier version for several years with good results and did not hesitate to purchase their product when it was offered
    THEY SUCK

    I purchased AVG SB and in the process of installing exchange part it took my information store down and I was unable to start the service manually. I filled out support email and do one bothered to contact me back. I could pay for support even though I purchased maintenance contract with it. Also, several machines stopped connecting to internet. the only way I could fix that was to uninstall AVG. I am very unsatisfied with the product and considering purchasing something that might actually work.

    My computer had AVG on it when I bought it from a
    computer store. I have tried to uninstall it but AVG won't allow the uninstall. This is total crap, AVG is a
    Virus in itself. There is no support if you have the free version. The AVG is on my shop computer and I don't have time to deal with this, they should be fined and pay the cost in getting my computer corrected
