    Please help me,
    I was to set up a new computer and install an internet security program on it. Someone else had installed the free version of Avg. I tried to uninstall it. I have gone thru the forums and checked other problems with this issue. It also stopped updating, before I attempted removing it. I would really like to get it off the machine, before I begin to have more problems.
    Thanks
