Unable To Uninstall AVG 9.0 – How Do I Remove AVG Free 9.0?

on December 2nd, 2011 | 5 Comments

How do you remove AVG Free 9.0 or uninstall AVG 9.0? My roommate tried to delete AVG 9.0, the free version downloaded earlier this year. He opened Control Panel and used Add/Remove Programs. Clicking Remove for AVG Free 9.0 starts the removal process but then it stops and doesn’t get all of it. The message was that the Uninstall Failed. He tried to uninstall it with AVG 9.0’s own Uninstall. That did not work either.

The following steps are what people as well as he have tried to AVG Free 9.0:

  1. Go down to the bottom left-hand corner of your screen and left-click on the Start button. This will bring up the Start menu and you should be able to see the Control Panel menu option. Click on Control Panel and a new box should appear.
  2. Find the Programs heading and look for a link that says “Uninstall a program”. Click on this link. A new window will appear showing all of the installed programs on your computer.
  3. Scroll down through your list of installed programs under Programs and Features and find AVG Free 9.0. Once you’ve located the program, click to highlight the program.
  4. Click the Uninstall button on the control panel menu towards the top of the window.
  5. Once you click uninstall, AVG Free 9.0 will immediately begin the uninstall process, with the uninstall program checking the status of your system.
  6. Next, you’ll want to select whether or not to remove the items in your virus vault and your user settings. If you want your computer to be void of any traces of AVG 9.0, you can check both boxes and click the “Yes” button.

If you have any open programs that may interfere with the uninstall process of AVG Free 9.0, another window will appear asking you to close those programs. If you have any unsaved work in these programs, save your work before continuing.

Once all of the components have been uninstalled, you come to a screen asking you to restart your computer. Click on the “OK” button and your computer should restart.

Once complete, AVG Free 9.0 will now be uninstalled from your computer. If you are unable to walk through this process, you can try to uninstall it by reinstalling AVG Free 9.0 with below steps if possible.

  1. Download AVG 9.0 Free Edition.
  2. When asked, do not open the file directly from the Internet. Instead, click Save.
  3. Launch installation by clicking the AVG icon.
  4. Choose Add/Remove Components during the installation process.
  5. Next, click on Uninstall to start the removal process. This option removes the AVG program from your PC.

If, for some reasons, AVG Free 9.0 still appear when the uninstall process is finishing up. The last resort should be a forcible uninstall either manually or automatically. However, a manual removal of AVG Free 9.0 for each related entries is nearly impossible for common pc users.

Therefore, the most effective way is running a Perfect Uninstaller that automatically will carry out the uninstall process of  AVG Free 9.0 through your hard drive and registry once the main entries are located.

    About a week ago, I upgraded to AVG 2011, and it messed up my whole system. Opening a program was extremely slow, and when it opened, so did 8 other windows of the same program. The AVG Safe Search Toolbar also made it impossible for me to download/remove Add-Ons in FireFox. I restored my PC back to two weeks ago, but I still had the problem. Will your program remove the toolbar as well?

    I don’t see where I can just click on a link & AVG 8.5 will upgrade to AVG 9.0, so do you have to uninstall AVG 8.5 then install AVG 9.0?
