Is AVG 2012 a virus?
I had to remove AVG 2012 from a computer the other day. First I tried "AddRemove" programs from the control panel but it did not work. Then I tried CCleaner but it could not remove it. I could not even manually shut AVG 2012 down from "Windows Task Manager".
Finally I restarted the computer in "safe mode" and located C:\Program Files\AVG and AVG2012. I then deleted the entire directories. When I restarted the computer and I ran CCleaner to fix all of the registry errors. Next I installed "Microsoft Security essentials". Now the computer runs much faster and uses a lot less memory.
