    Pros

    Loads a lot faster than previous versions

    Cons

    Slowed my system down considerably AGV was a major headache slowing my system down considerably I found surfing to be a major headache ,in all I tried to uninstall AGV 2013 on 5 occasions but each attempt failed. In the end I saw no option but to try to restore my computer to a earlier time before I had installed AGV 2013 each attempt to restore my system failed I am starting to wonder if the new version (which I downloaded from Cnet was some sort of a virus ?
    I will try to uninstall again until I either manage to rid myself of AGV if this doesn't happen I have a hammer ready to smash my computer "THANK YOU AGV"

    Summary

    Wish I had not found the version of AGV I DOWNLOADED

    Updated on May 11, 2013

    AVG continues to cause major problems, on the last attempt to try to restore my computer to a earlier time I was shocked to see AVG had wiped all pre AVG installation points from my system (I am no computer genius and I have no idea how to rebuild my system) I am limited to the amount of time I am able to use my computer due to ill-health, although I believe I may of finally managed to un-install all AVG files from my computer (the process took 8 days to complete) although I still have problems when browsing every page seems to freeze and the overall operation continues to be sluggish. I recently sent a email from AVG who had the nerve to offer a free trial of a programme designed to speed up computers suffering from slow sluggish operation. AVG seem to of learned a few things from scam websites' in fact AVG could actually learn them all a lesson !I hope AVG are proud of themselves I relied on computer mainly due to being housebound .

    Hey,
    if you are stilling having trouble uninstalling AVG, open the GUI, go to 'Advance Settings' click on 'AVG Self Protection' and make sure it is unchecked. Your other option is to reboot into safe mode and then uninstall.
