All I want to do is take the AVG virus software off my machine (XP SP3) running the remove software from the control panel finishes up with an error message, and chiseling away at it via Windows Explorer and the recycle bin gives me "access denied" messages. Is there something I'm missing here, or is this normal for those who want to remove virus software? Seems I had a similar problem years ago trying to get rid of Norton's antivirus s/w.

Hi jaydee2,

Give AVG Remover a try to see if that does the trick.

Best Luck :)

If you really want to change antivirus software then I will recommend you malwarebytes anti malware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware efforts to help 100 % free users from the ever-persistent issue of viruses infestation.

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware is NOT an anti-virus program! Rather, it is designed to be used in concert with a resident AV such as Avira or Kaspersky and the like.
