If you couldn’t uninstall AVG antivirus however, then you could use a third party uninstaller tool (Revo Uninstaller). If nothing worked for you then you could ask a question in the comment section below. We’ll answer you as soon as possible there.


Q: Why we use removal tool instead of uninstalling it from add / remove?

A: Normally to uninstall any software we use add / remove program feature of the windows. But sometimes we require troubleshooting various installation issues like the compatibility issues, registry conflicting issue unable to install / uninstall issue etc.

Q: Is this utility work for all versions?

A: This tool should work mostly all versions like 2019, 2018, 2017 and for 32 bit and 64 bit based Windows 10, 8, 7, XP.

Q: I  am unable to remove AVG Management Console (AVG Zen)?

A : AVG has discontinued its Zen features since last year. Now users can manage their subscription directly in the AVG software. So to remove AVG Zen first of all you need to remove all the AVG products and then uninstall AVG Zen. If you face any issue then you can use the Removal tool as mentioned above.

    I have had a problem removing AVG Free 2015 from my Windows 7 64 Bit Laptop using the latest AVG Remover Utility 2015 (64bit). When the Removal Utility is executed it crashes before the uninstall is completed. I’ve tried executing this tool in Safe Mode & Standard with the same end results.

    I have used AVG Removal tool to remove AVG 2011 and updated to the free version 30day trial of 2015 on windows 7, it has removed it and then i do a restart and install 2015 version, when i restart my computer again the AVG removal tool starts by it self again and removes the 2015 version by it self, i can’t how to remove the AVG removal tool once used or stop it starting up again and removing 2015 version. any suggestions why this wold be happening as i can’t find anyone else with this issue. thank you

  16. Charan says

    Not only will AVG free 2015 antivirus not install on my PC, but the removal tool doesn’t work, simply stating “connection failed” every time I try to use it. What connection? The internet works fine, so the lack of explanation makes it impossible to discern what the problem is. Ridiculous.

  17. Charan says

    Even the tool I downloaded from this page will not work – Windows cannot identify the reason. I suspect some sort of Malware is deliberately preventing me from installing any antivirus. Really fed up.

  18. Marge says

    it will always come back – it is malware… I do not think there is a way to ever totally get rid of the monster

    having problems installing avg2015 free. have been using AVG for years with no probs.

    error codes are: 0xC0070643

    and driver error 0xC007001C

    have tried using the remover tool, no luck
    have tried to reinstall 2014, no luck (asks for a security key).

    what else can i try?


    1. Techexpert says

      Try REVO Uninstaller Tool. It can remove the programs which have the problem in uninstall itself. You can download REVO Uninstaller from our tools page

  20. nana says

    I’m trying to uninstall AVG 2014 the program keeps telling me I do not have permission to uninstall it. I’ve tried using a removal tool but it says i have no internet but there seems to be nothing wrong with my internet! Can you help, please?

    1. Techexpert says

      You should try REVO uninstaller tool to do it.

  21. Carl S says

    I’m trying to clean all AVG software off of my computer. There’s nothing in the Programs and Features to remove on my Win7 system. There’s nothing in Chrome or IE which are the browsers I use. I’ve tried the Removal Tool. After each restart I still have the following AVG programs running:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\AVG Secure Search\vToolbarUpdater\18.7.0\loggingserver.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\AVG Secure Search\vToolbarUpdater\18.7.0\ToolbarUpdater.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG Web TuneUp\WtuSystemSupport.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG Web TuneUp\vprot.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG Web TuneUp\avgcefrend.exe

    1. Techexpert says

      The AVG removal tool for the AVG antiviruses only, it won’t remove AVG tuneup utility. In your case, you have problem with AVG Tuneup utility. So you have to remove it manually. You can easily remove all that folders while running your computer in SAFEMODE.

  22. John Bennett says

    I want to remove avg internet security 2015 free trial but there is nothing in add/remove to do this. I am on windows 32 bit on a dell laptop.

    1. Techexpert says

      Use its uninstaller tool, it’ll help you to uninstall it automatically.

  23. John Bennett says

    in response to others who had internet connection problems, when I installed avg after starting up so did I. It changed the settings in the wifi and I had to go in and change settings to open to get back into my wifi. Hope that helps some of you.

  24. Eve says

    I uninstalled avg 2015 using the uninstall tool, but now I can’t connect to the internet!. How can I sort this? I have tried everything I can think of.

    1. michael Ellison says

      Try resetting your router if you have wifi.

      How can you trust AVG uninstaller to not change your settings and especially your IP address

  25. J Monahan says

    The AVG download completely removed AVG from my computer. What a pain getting rid of AVG was! Never will use them again. Thanks — made a donation. Great source of info BTW

  26. CCCC says

    Will this work with the new AVG 2016 64-bit version on Windows 10 Pro? I’m trying to uninstall the free version I’ve been using for a year on this PC but there’s no program in the AVG files to remove it.

    1. Techexpert says

      AVG have not updated AVG 2016 uninstaller tool yet on their own page, maybe AVG 2015 works with AVG 2016, we not sure about it.

  27. M Sunico says

    I uninstalled AVG from Controller Panel, but then when I use the AVG remover it says I have the Anti-Virus Free. So i put to remove it and then Anti-Virus Free still pops up even after the restart.

    1. Techexpert says

      It seems like the free version is still persist into your computer. Please try to uninstall that free version from control panel as well if it appears into your control panel otherwise you have to remove it manually. Try Revo uninstaller tool, maybe it will show you the AVG free version. Let us know the results then I’ll give you the manual removal steps.

      1. M Sunico says

        It was able to remove everything! thank you! just wondering though if you anything on why my computer isn’t able to run some exe programs when i double click them?

        1. Techexpert says

          That’s great your issue has solved. Which one EXE doesn’t work? or all the EXE are not working? Let us know if it works when you do right-click on an EXE file and then click open.

      2. M Sunico says

        Some examples, AVG 2016 or even updates from Java

        1. Techexpert says

          There are lots of FAKE updates of java available in the market. So you should prevent to click on them. Anyway, we recommend you 3 tools which can help you to remove adwares / malwares from your computer.

          1. Do a scan of Malwarebytes
          2. Do a scan of HitmanPro32 / HitmanPro64
          3. Do a scan of Adwcleaner

  30. ld says

    Where to start-I run windows 10 on new laptop-have avg free on my system-I started to get a warning on my security setting-says that updates to new windows 10 failed and that avg also needed attention. I tried to sort out avg but it wouldn’t load-I tried to update the new release for 10 but didn’t work -it seems because avg program was stopping I it. So tried to uninstall avg-couldnt do it-tries several methods-the last method I tried was to load the avg uninstaller and ran it-it did not uninstall avg but instead said avg needed updating. In desperation I aoolwed the update-it took a while but when updated, it allowed me to open it at least. Then and only then I was able to got to the windows update facility and it now allowed and has since updated to latest version of the edge. I have not tried yet to uninstall avg now it is all updated. In any event, I guess I could say I had a resolution to my problem of not being able to get latest Edge version but still in the dark about how to get rid of avg

    Did not work, wanted to remove the VPN but that option never appeared. Connected VPN yesterday which immediately made my business email greyed out and dysfunctional. ” on 12/05/2019 21:48
    Server error: ‘451 4.7.1 You are greylisted for 900 seconds’

    All AVG phone numbers “no longer connected” and that business can only be contacted via email (which I no longer have). Will find a technical guy for a few hundred dollars today to remove AVG and install something else.
