"Is There an Uninstall Utility?
Unfortunately, at this time Grisoft, the maker of AVG, does not have an uninstall utility for AVG. The recommended procedure is a time consuming one. You must download the latest version of AVG from the website, and then run it."
ANY Software which does NOT allow itself to be removed is a "SCAM"!!!
I am sick and tired of sloppy software publishers who do a SLOPPY job writing software !!!!

All traces were removed. Well worth the time to download. I'm completely converted to this free product. Dont pay for anything its all out there for the... (read more)

This is an excellent product. Compared to the household names (Symantec, Trend, Karpersky, Avast etc) it's proven itself in y experience to be superior to all. I saw this at our office when it was up against Symantec. It's not as resource hungry as Symantec.
I saw this at a customer who was down for 2 whole days because of a virus. Up to the day Trend has NOT ONCE given any pop-up or alert whatsoever of the virus. AVG did the trick. I was even more impressed with AVG removing an already... (read more)

I have had AVG [paid for not free] for 4 years. Great until 9 version appeared 10 months ago [autumn 2009]. Since upgrading to 9 AVG just crashes during scans 9 times out of 10 - on the 1 in 10 times it works it shows a totally clean computer! Spent the last 10 days non-stop [yes can you believe that my vacation July 2010 was to sort out AVG??!!] doing everything conceivable from uninstalling/re-installing programmes, system restore, registry clean, re-loading windows installer,...

I use a paid version of AVG.
It used to be a really good product, and I stuck with it - it used to be known as Ewido a few years ago. I haven't given it much thought of late - until now.
Just recently I had a hard disk problem, copied off the data before trashing it, and it alerted me to a virus in a specific file. Why only now? This should have been detected long ago, as it's been on the computer for over a year. I looked more carefully...
In fact, the file is not virus infected -... (read more)

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!! I had AVG for as long as I had my lap top, a couple of years. I rebought the license and upgraded as necessary. All was well until 9.0. 9.0 killed my computer dead. Even when I granted the AVG remote tech access to my computer and we got rid of 9 and went back to 8.0 the damage was done. 9 saw itunes and microsoft office as viruses. Enough said. Even worse, after killing my computer to the point were I had to wipe it clean and reload my programs from scratch, the... (read more)

AVG version 8.5 now detects threats in files which were previously cleared by an older version of AVG. In other words, false positives are very high.
In short, stay away of this product - it is a piece of junk. (read more)

I have used Grisoft AVG for quite sometime but I have to switched to another antivirus software when I learned that AVG won't be updating the free versions anymore. I guess they discontinued that now.
The paid versions for AVG (professional) was quite good but I guess there are free antivirus softwares (Avast and Avira) that performs better than AVG. (read more)

I am a technician that has used Grisoft AVG for years on many different computer systems. Both free and paid subsriptions have worked great! It is one of the first apps I install. Its detection rate is comparatively good--it usually detects and removes threats that are already on systems. With the later versions, its a great value to also get the other malware detection products. Wish I had stock with the company:-) (read more)
