    avg watchdog


    I have the latest avg free
    I am usually quite careful not to let addons enter, I usually watch for all prechecked boxes
    Apparently I missed avg watchdog
    Winpatrol is not even able to remove it
    Is there a way to remove it
    If I totally uninstall avg and put avast on my computer will watchdog go away
    I get no virus or Trojan or malware reports from avg or Malwarebytes or Microsoft malicious software removal tool
    I do not like any program or addon to a program on my computer that I do not want there even if it is a good program
    Also is there any hint that Microsoft will stop forcing updates, I always did mine manual after waiting a month for the
    good, bad, and ugly report

    Windows 10 x64 Home Build (Version 1709) 16299.19

    Found this for you on unstalling it from your system.

    How to disable this service.
    Open a command prompt. (Run a command prompt as Administrator in Windows vista/7/8/10)
    Copy command line and Paste.
    sc stop avgwatchdog
    sc config avgwatchdog start= disabled

    How to delete this service.
    sc delete avgwatchdog

    Done.!
    Close the command prompt.

    Hope that helps

    Windows 10

    I disabled AVG WatchDog Service today on my Windows 10 machine. I did this by booting my machine in Safe Mode and then followed this sequence: Start Page => Windows Administrative Services => Component Services => Services => AVG WatchDog. Then I changed the Startup Type setting from Automatic to Manual. Finally, I rebooted the machine normally and then repeated the above sequence to ensure AVG WatchDog would start manually only.
