    I downloaded the free version of AVG 7.5 and cannot now get rid of it. At least I keep being told I can't.

    When I try to delete it via Program Access & Defaults, although it appears in the program list, when I hit the "Remove" button I get a message telling me "Installation Unsuccessful".

    When I try to delete it via Start > My Computer > Program Files > Grisoft I get a message telling me that I "Cannot delete avgse. Access is denied".

    I did email grisoft tech support twice but merely received automated replies about licences which was no help whatsoever.

    My laptop runs Windows XP Pro.
