    AVG Kernel Error

    Hi,

    Yesterday i tried to install BitDefender. At the time i still had AVG free installed on my PC, and bitdefender said it would remove it for me, so i agreed. It appeared to remove ok, then the install of bitdefender started. The bitdefender install failed, and when i rebooted my PC i got a Kernel Error from AVG. I went to my programs list and tried to uninstall it and it says that there is no install there, so i went to Start -> Programs -> AVG and tried to use AVG's uninstall, the uninstall failed.

    Starting to get quite annoyed...

    Does anyone know of a manual way of removing AVG Free?

    (Im using Vista Home Premium)

    Cheers

    Dan

    Re: AVG Kernel Error

    Sounds like you've got a rogue registry entry somewhere, relating to AVG. Have a serach through the registry is you feel comfortable.

    Re: AVG Kernel Error

    Ive had a brief look thru myself and scanned it with Uniblue Registry Booster, it found 15 faults, one of which was an AVG file, but i am still getting the error, even after deleting the bad registry files.

    I have stopped it from running on startup, so its not annoying me every time i boot up, but the fact that it is sitting on my PC is annoying enough.

    ...or do a full over the top install. Dirty and messy, but unless you want to spend hours fannying around, you may have little option.

    Already tried to do a full install over the top, that fails too. Looks like manual remove is going to be the only way

    Re: AVG Kernel Error

    Try CCleaner's unistall option.

    Open it up and hit the Tools button.

    In fact use it to clean up if that fails.

    Lol i tried that too, read about it on the net last night, the uninstall did'nt work because all it did was open up AVG's uninstaller, which keeps failing.

    I did do a clean up, but that didnt really fix anything, just got rid of some temp files.

    What ever i try just seems to run AVG's uninstaller program, which just keeps failing.

    I think the only way to do it is to manually go thru and delete every file/reg entry related to AVG. Does anyone have a list of all the AVG files and registry entires?

    Well rather than guessing where everything is in Vista. Contact Grisoft either via the forum or email and see what instructions they give out.

    Actually dankellys, if you post back with any instructions you get from Grisoft that will help anyone else out in a future situation, and much love will be returned your way

    Re: AVG Kernel Error

    Im struggling to contact them at the min, as the only way to register for their forum is thru the Information menu in the AVG free software! (which i obviously cant get into...)

    Just in the process of looking for a contact email address...
