How do I uninstall AVG Anti Virus? I can't do it from Add/Remove. It just locks up my computer. I think it may be a Rogue version.
Help??

This is the current link to the removal tools for genuine AVG products.
http://www.avg.com/gb-en/utilities

If you have downloaded a rogue antivirus when you suddenly got a pop-up saying your computer was infected, there are removal instructions on bleepingcomputer.com.

Follow the instructions carefully; do not click on the adverisements.

Thanks for the replies. I will try those. I did try Malwarebytes and it found nothing. I think I'm doomed :(
