    avg safeguard toolbar


    How can I remove this crap. It got installed with a download and I can't remove it. Uninstall fails, says I must be logged in as administrator.

    Is there a way to activate the administrator account in 8.1?

    Firstly let's open an elevated command prompt.
    how to do that option one:
    1. + X
    2. + A

    option 2:
    from the start screen start typing "cmd" when you see it appear under search, right click and choose run as administrator.


    now you are in a elevated command prompt type this command and press enter:

    appwiz.cpl

    this should load add and remove programmes as an administrator try to uninstall.

    also if you do want information on the in-built administrator:

    Hope that helps.
