AVG Secure Browser Uninstall Problems
I discovered this morning that AVG Web TuneUp was taking over 200 GB of disk space on my computer. I decided to uninstall it. My space is back, but the icon is still in Programs & Features. I then tried to uninstall AVG completely with their tool, but the icon was still there. I also tried to reinstall AVG to see if I could successfully uninstall Web TuneUp, but to no avail. Plus, AVG is there, but it doesn’t even let me reinstall the protection component (error code 0xC0070643). Some people recommend to use Revo Uninstaller, but I don’t want something bad to happen, since it messes with the registry. What do you recommend I do?
Did you have any trouble uninstalling AVG Secure Browser? The uninstall of AVG Secure Browser has failed for a number of reasons. To start with, you won’t know where to start uninstalling it because the browser app is not listed under Apps and Features. You may give up and change your mind if you don’t see the program.
On the other hand, you always get an error when you try to uninstall the program. According to users, they say, “You do not have enough access to uninstall AVG Secure Browser. Contact your system administrator” and “Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. When trying to uninstall the software manually using the Windows uninstaller, you may not have proper authorization to access the device. Many users are confused when they are told that they do not have sufficient access to a particular item because they own the PC and are the sole administrator of that PC.
In fact, many antivirus security programs are set up in such a way as to protect the PC as much as possible. However, this also makes it difficult to uninstall. Even if you successfully complete the uninstall process, you will still be left with leftover software such as browsing data, including profile information such as bookmarks and history. Some plug-ins and tools are not uninstalled. Instead, they may appear in your browser application on your system. To completely remove the folders and files associated with them, you may need to open the Run command to uninstall them again from the Control Panel.
