Solved: RE: AVG -Why do I get Access Denied & Cannot Delete?
Have been getting AVG errors or AVGUI.exe errors so I'm trying to delete everything AVG , and then install avg 2011. I found 108 avg related files and folders .

When I try deleting I get Access Denied; Cannot Delete, or will damage system if I delete? Help please?

Thanks!

I downloaded AVG remover and then found 109 AVG related files & folders (up from 108 when I began) after restarting. Ran AVG remover again and this time was left with only 26 AVG files & folders.
Now running AVG remover a third time. Is this standard procedure?

Thank you for your help. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead. 26 is better than 109.
