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.

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.

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

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.
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.

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.
Try resetting your router if you have wifi.
How can you trust AVG uninstaller to not change your settings and especially your IP address
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.
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.
Use its uninstaller tool, it’ll help you to uninstall it automatically.
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
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.
