    There are many people trying to get AVG off of their computers.

    Did you do an uninstall of their application or did you try and do it by using the add/remove program off the control panel?  If you try and remove it manually is it giving you an error? I have used AVG for years and only recently had an issue..It seems there can be conflicts when running games on Steam.

    I used add/remove program. Wouldn't do it, also tried uninstall and it sent me to a install program so that didn't work. Then I used the AVG Removal Tool and that didn't work.Then I used the AVG Removal Tool in Safe Mode.That seems to have worked except for that avg file with the dt.dat in it. Also, Visual Studios 2012 x64 Redistributables AVG Technologies 1/5/2014 and Visual Studios AVG Technologies CZ, S.R.O. x86 1/5/2014

    Restart your system in safe mode without network, now stop all avg related services, then you can try to remove avg. If not probably you have to install it again and then try uninstall in the same way.

    Can you explain what you mean by this?

    "That seems to have worked except for that avg file with the dt.dat in it. Also, Visual Studios 2012 x64 Redistributables AVG Technologies 1/5/2014 and Visual Studios AVG Technologies CZ, S.R.O. x86 1/5/2014"

    What is the name of the file you are referring to?
    How is it related to AVG?
    What issue is it causing?

    What is the issue with the other files you mentioned (Visual Studio...)?

    I use to use AVG all the time. When they came out with the AVG Zen, that is when I had to get rid of it. AVG started causing conflicts.. Do you have both the AVG and the AVG Zen?

    I have used AVG for years, and continue using it today at home, without any issue.

    Todd, what is AVG Zen?

    I don't have it, which is apparently a good thing.

    The AVG Zen links it to multiple devices like tablets and more. I think if you download the newest version of AVG it come with it by default. The reason I think this is because I got a new laptop about 2 months ago and went to get my favorite utilities, AVG being one, and it loaded the the standard AVG. Don't remember being given a choice. Had to remove it because of clashes with Steam.. And when I uninstalled it, that was one of the reasons you could select as to why you were uninstalling their software.

    These are the avg files that won't let me remove them.  Avg file with the dt.dat in it. Also, Visual Studios 2012 x64 Redistributables AVG Technologies 1/5/2014 and Visual Studios AVG Technologies CZ, S.R.O. x86 1/5/2014.  These two are in programs.

    emberblaze@: What directory are those files in? They may be part of another application to make sure it will run if AVG is installed.

    I still don't understand what this is: "Avg file with the dt.dat in it".

    is "dt.dat" a file, or is that some text that is written inside another file whose name was not mentioned?

    Check out this link. If you used the AVG tune up, it may leave some files behind that are not in an AVG directory but in another AVG directory like

    C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Application Data\AVG Web TuneUp\DNT\dt.dat.

    They provide a full list
