    - Do a search with Revo to look for remnants.

    - Try the AVG uninstall tool above to search for remnants. Sometimes, it is necessary to reinstall AVG and uninstall using the AVG tool.

    - Good idea (imo) to check the registry (regedit) and file explorer and delete registry keys and folders.
