Windows 7 Security OkThe problems you must face using an Antivirus are not always obvious. By not properly uninstalling an antivirus programs, you can experience system instabilities.

It is not unusual that you find problems when installing a new antivirus program due to traces of the older one.

The first choice you should use is the uninstaller that comes with the software. But if something happens on the process the following list can solve your problems:


Panda has created an uninstall program for every product, so select the proper one:

    The link to the “AVG Remover” on this page is incorrect. The correct link is https://support.avg.com/SupportArticleView?l=en_US&urlName=How-to-uninstall-AVG.

    You then have to scroll down the page until you see “click here for AVG Remover.” There are other “removal tools” available from the AVG website (including others on that web page), but the one that works is the “AVG Remover.” The correct file name is AVG_Remover.exe
