I'm hoping someone can assist with this very annoying situation. I put AVG9 antivirus on my computer for the 30 day trial. I have decided not to go with them and tried to delete it. Thinking I had done it ok I then deleted the shortcut fully. Now I find that AVG is still there and when I try to delete it - it won't go it keeps coming up with "Uninstall failed - 1 error and 2 warnings occurred". Then it goes on to tell me "local machine installation failed" "SetupUninstallOEMinfW for fw driver failed - possible cause the system cannot find the file specified.
"AVGIDSAgent exe. stopping service. The request control is not valid for this service.
Rollback
"warning: Action failed for file avgfwfd.ird.file unregistration rollback.
AVG Firewall NDIS driver installation failed
Error Ox80070002 NDIS installation failed. restart needed.

And with all that it just keeps on coming at me. My machine is so slow now obviously because it is running somehow.

Please can anyone tell me how to get rid of this rediculous thing so that I can have my sanity back.

Thanks

Thanks for the responses - I have successfully removed the AVG product using the Revo Uninstaller which is brilliant. Again thank you.
