    hi, My name is Alex
    I have an "antivirus" that got downloaded by itself
    you probably know it's name, it is: AVG free Antivirus
    And this "Antivirus" just does not open when I try to
    when i try to uninstall it it says i need administrator permission and It's process is always on if I try to stop AVG's processes in task manager it says access denied
    I also tried to delete the installation file in program files it says I need administrator Permission
    an I do have administrator permission
    Also I downloaded AVG's AVG remover and AVG clear it doesn't work
    AVG remover said it did not find any active avg product within your system
    So I think this is a Malware with a fake digtal license or something like that
    don't know maybe I am saying nonsense
    I have Kaspersky total security whitch is an antivirus that i paid for and it didn't recognize AVG as a virus
    i found in the installation folder a "setup folder" that is compressed with it's contents tried to uncompress it cut it said as always "access denied" i don't know if this last info is useful but anyways...
    hope someone responds i think that i need remote technical support.
