I have a Windows 10 computer and recently installed a new antivirus. It's AVG. But now this is stopped me from playing my computer games. Now, I want to delete it. I went into the Control Panel and deleted it but it's still there (and I can access it). How can I remove it completely?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I never had an issue with AVG and playing games. Are you sure it’s AVG and not a firewall issue? If you want to make sure its gone, boot your system in safe mode and try to use AVG uninstall if it still shows in the options if not then try to go into control panel and look under add/remove programs.

    After uninstall have you restart your system. It is necessary to restart the OS for fully uninstall. If you have doubt, you can reboot the OS in safe mode and try to uninstall the same. It helps to remove any software completely in safe mode. However, why it stops to play computer games and what was the error messages these are all information is unavailable. Assuming there is some settings related issue on avg antivirus or necessary to allow certain types of exe files, however virus is also an issue. So be cautious, almost all computer games are full of viruses. It is not recommended to uninstall anti virus and play games which can lead to a serious trouble in future. You can try avast (free). if you already uninstalled avg.
