    How do you remove AVG antivirusand stop their annoying pop-up ads?


    There was a tempting free trial offer to try AVG antivirus; only one of dozens on the market available to download. I was unsatisfied generally and now need to uninstall and remove it completely, mainly because it constantly nags me with a pop up that covers almost half the readable screen, quite often.


    When I do simple uninstall, it does not remove the whole thing. After using [ctrl+alt+del] I see about 5-6 AVG programs running even though I have uninstalled and rebooted. I tried completely deleting the AVG file directory, but it tells me I need 'Administrator priveleges', even thought I am this computer's owner, administrator, and only user!


    How in the world do you get this thing and it's annoying pop ups completely off the computer? It's slowing everything down, and it's useless to me, and annoying!

    :)
