    Programs should be removed using their included uninstaller, or Windows add/remove programs in the control panel, or by running the installation CD again and choosing to uninstall, when that applies.

    Simply deleting things doesn't necessarily remove all the files and entries for the program, (and frequently you're only deleting the icon or shortcut.)

    In your situation, I recommend that you reinstall AVG and then uninstall it properly.

    The fresh installation will recognize any previously installed files and only update what's not there, thus when you uninstall this time, it should uninstall cleanly.

    You should never delete a program, you should uninstall it. Depending on which version Windows you use, go to start>settings>control panel>add/remove programs. Double click that icon, find AVG on list and click remove.

    if you use windows, go to add/remove programs dialog and click on uninstall.....if it doesn't work you can remove it manually by deleting the folder of avg under program files and then delete all shorcuts...finally, if you know how to edit the registry you should remove all references to grisoft
