    It installed just fine


    I do know the difference between accept and decline. I DL this app and I clicked on decline and it still installed the AVG toolbar also I went to the control panel to uninstall the program and it wont uninstall. it says file does not exist. meanwhile it keeps popping up on my computer where the clock is. and it is also still in my control panel where all my other programs are. I do know how to uninstall a program. I am not a certify tech but I do fix computers and know my way around them pretty well. This program either has a bug of something else cause it won't uninstall it is very agravating. I finally got rid of the tab that opened everytime I went on line, but can't get rid of the program still trying to figure this out. So yes I am sorry I DL this irritating program. unbelievable!!!!


    Next time I would think twice before installing this type of program. Figured I wouldn't have a problem since I usually install & trust CNET & never had a problem before but this time I got f. oh well guess there's a first time for everything.
    Sincerely dissapointed.

    Hello Mita74,

    I'm sorry about your issue with AVG. The offer for AVG is only presented in the second pane of our trial version. It does not appear on our paid-for version. In any case, it should not have installed if you unchecked the offer to install it. Our apologies if it did.

    Kind regards,
