  • Go to Start - Run and type wbemtest then click OK.
  • Click on the Connect button on the upper right side (above Exit).
  • Change root\default to root\SecurityCenter and click on Connect again.
  • Under IWbemServices click on Query…
  • Type in SELECT * FROM AntiVirusProduct and then click on Apply.

There should be an entry for each of the following:

{17DDD097-36FF-435F-9E1B-52D74245D6BF}
{BCF43643-A118-4432-AEDE-D861FCBCFCDF}
{EDB4FA23-53B8-4AFA-8C5D-99752CCA7095}
{8decf618-9569-4340-b34a-d78d28969b66}

Double-click on each of the bold ones and scroll down the results window until you see Company name/Display name for AVG. The first one should be for AVG Internet Security 2012 and the last one for AVG Firewall. Delete those two entries, leaving only the other two that are for MSE.

The second bold entry was not present but I did the delete on the first bold entry . I guess AVG doesn't like to be uninstalled ?!

How many entries were there? Did you check the others to see if any were related to AVG?

I will and give Poppy one too (whatever a scritch is )

Here are some final instructions for you.

Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and all of its files and components.
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type ComboFix /uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /uninstall, it needs to be there (the screenshot is just for illustration purposes but the actual command uses the entire word "uninstall" and not just the "u" as shown in the picture).



Now you should turn system restore off to flush out all previous system restore points, then turn it back on and create a new restore point:

To turn off system restore, on the Desktop, right click on My Computer and click on Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply and then click OK.

Restart your computer, turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

To create a new restore point, click on StartAll ProgramsAccessoriesSystem Tools and then select System Restore.

In the System Restore wizard, select Create a restore point and click the Next button.

Type a name for your new restore point then click on Create.

It's possible. Can you try another keyboard? If you don't have another one maybe you can borrow from someone? Even if you buy one they're not expensive and it's always good to have a back-up. I have six or seven keyboards because I have yet to find one I like.
