I recently uninstalled AVG 8 Free Edition, due to it failing to automatically update properly and me having to run the update manually all the time. Uninstalled using Add/Remove Programs, fine. I have now looked at my running services only to find AVG8 Watchdog and AVG8 Email Scanner still there. I want rid of AVG, and my friend recently did the same uninstall, followed by a search of his hard-drive for any files with AVG in the title, which he then promptly deleted. He ended up with no internet access after that and only managed to recover it using system restore. I assume him deleting AVG files and the lost internet access are linked, however he's no expert - so there's no telling if he changed/deleted something else he shouldn't have. Any advice about how I can get rid of AVG safely, once & for all? Thanks!
