    Sorry, still find AVG is complete and utter garbage.
    Just came across a system with AVG Toolbar installed, could not uninstall it no matter what I did.
    Can't use 3rd party uninstallers, AVG's uninstaller is complete garbage and just had to disable it in IE Add-On's

    Still can't pay me to install anything AVG on any system.

    To each his own I guess. Its been good for me. I swap AV every few months, never an issue uninstalling, or re-installing multiple times. As always YMMV...

    I am still coming across PC's that are hosed, and what AV are they running? AVG.
    Sorry, it's too coincidental.

    Either it can not be uninstalled cause it's installer is toast, or msinstaller is toast, or there are other issues, that I can not say for sure, but far too coincidental to NOT be AVG causing the issue.

    Besides,, I would never take a rag like PCMag seriously on this stuff, can anyone say for certain there wasn't some Kickback?

    The only one I really take seriously is AV-Comparatives - Independent Tests of Anti-Virus Software
    And this is why,,, Funding
