    If users have an issue removing AVG Free 2011 as the uninstall gives you either a 'Cannot complete uninstall because AVG Watch dog cannot be stopped' or 'Cannot complete uninstall because another AVG service cannot be stopped' error then simply do the following to resolve this issue. NB: Relates to Windows 7

    1. ALT+CTRL+DEL & start Task Manager
    2. Choose 'Services' Tab and then click Bottom Right button labeled 'Services'
    3. Double click on each AVG Service and change the Start-up Type to DISABLED.
    4. Restart after changes and Run the Uninstall Process again.
