    Unknown Installation Running, Preventing Installs

    Hello, I have been trying to unistall AVG all morning but it can't complete as there's a installation running, but to my knowledge there isn't another one running and I can't work out what it is? It's not a problem with AVG as iv'e tried unistalling other programs and they say there's a installation running to. Anyone got any ideas how to stop this mystery installation? Thanks

    Try this.

    Right click on the window in the bottom left of your screen; or right-click on the task bar and open Task Manager. Look down the processes tab for AVG. Right-click to "end task. " It will give you a warning. Ignore it and end the task. Now try the uninstall.
