    Have been getting AVG errors or AVGUI.exe errors so I'm trying to delete everything AVG , and then install avg 2011. I found 108 avg related files and folders .

    When I try deleting I get Access Denied; Cannot Delete, or will damage system if I delete? Help please?

    Thanks!

    Thank you. I saw that advice before - but wasn't quite sure if it applied to the errors I was getting. Going to try AVG Remover.

    I downloaded AVG remover and then found 109 AVG related files & folders (up from 108 when I began) after restarting. Ran AVG remover again and this time was left with only 26 AVG files & folders.
    Now running AVG remover a third time. Is this standard procedure?

    I still have 26 AVG related files and folders after the 4th try using AVG remover. Going into add/remove programs I see nothing AVG.
    Are there any other alternatives?

    Thank you for your help. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead. 26 is better than 109.
