Removing AVG 2102

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.
