    I have recently uninstalled avg from my computer and placed a well known antivirus and firewall in its place, but since today, apparently the virus downloads are now longer available unless you pay for the software, it keeps coming up pop up with a reminder on start up to pay for the dam thing even though there is no trace of avg on my computer.

    Is there anyway to delete this pop up, I guess it would be from the registry key, if any one can give me step by step guidelines to delete this problem I would be grateful. (y)

    Type 'regedit' into RUN. Make backup of registry by exporting and chosing all files. If anything goes wrong you can doubleclick and registry will revert back.

    Navigate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Grisoft, and delete folder.

    i have had good luck by just going to start- search- files & folders and type in "avg" and delete all folders found. why do you want to delete avg ? it does a great job and is free.
