McAfee installation error 0 - AVG not fully uninstalled

I've run the AVG removal tool but in my apps list it shows AVG protection but when i try to uninstall it says there are no setup files to use.  the mcafee install also says it can't uninstall the remenants.

 

i'm currently sat with no antivirus protection.

 

mcafee won't help

 

any ideas?

Stick with AVG, re-install it.

Not sure, but I did a quick search, and there's an AVG removal tool. Included the word  "free" and 2017 year.

It does say that you must remove the uninstaller program afterwards.

(I used avg-free some years ago, and it seemed ok).

mcafee may be more thorough, though.

Bubbles, I am with AVG and there are two different removal tools that are recommended by AVG when trying to uninstall everything related.  If you go to www.avg.com on the Community pages you will find links to both, which i do not have to hand right now.

Well, husband took everything he could out of the registry, and that didnt work, I ran the AVG_Clear and that didnt work. finlly I rn the AVG_Remove again, and then my McAfee installed!  Thanks for all the help.

 

It really shouldnt be so hard to uninstall a product!
