You must protect your business computers from malware to keep vital files and programs safe from damage and theft. AVG is one tool that helps you do this. If AVG is not performing well and other troubleshooting repairs have failed, reinstalling -- uninstalling the damaged copy and installing a fresh one -- can get it back on the job, keeping your computer and your business safe.


Click the Windows Start button and click "Control Panel." Click "Programs" and then "Programs and Features" to view a list of installed programs.


Select "AVG" from the list and click the "Uninstall" or "Change" button. If prompted, enter your administrator password to confirm and launch the AVG setup wizard.


Select the "Uninstall" option in the wizard to remove the program. Restart your computer when the uninstallation process completes.


Click the Start button, click "Computer" to launch Windows Explorer, and then double-click the "C:" drive. Double-click the "Program Files" folder.


Scroll through the Program Files folder and locate the AVG folder. Right-click it and click "Delete."


Empty the Recycle Bin to remove the AVG folder completely.


Visit the AVG download page (see link in Resources). Scroll down the page and click the link next to the version you want to reinstall. When prompted, click "Download Now," and then click "Save" to download the installation file.


Double-click the AVG installation file and follow the guided prompts in the installation wizard that launches to reinstall the program. The guided prompts include options such as reading and accepting the terms and conditions and selecting a location to install the program.


Restart your computer when the setup wizard tells you to.


  • Visit the AVG download page if the program won't uninstall (see link in Resources). Click the "AVG Free" link. When prompted, click "Save" and download the file to the desktop. Double-click the installation file and click the "Uninstall Product" option in the "Select Setup Type" dialog box. Follow the guided prompts to complete the uninstallation process, and then restart your computer.
  • If you cannot successfully uninstall AVG after several attempts, download the AVG Remover tool from the AVG Download Tools Web page (see link in Resources). Run the program and follow the prompts to completely uninstall AVG.
