AVG Support Community
Okay, 2 issues with this response:
"This article outlines how to uninstall AVG AntiVirus for Mac. Please do not uninstall AVG AntiVirus by dragging its icon into Trash, as this will not uninstall the application correctly."
Yes, I understand that now, which is why I'm here in the first place.
"In such case, please install AVG AntiVirus again (as outlined here), and then follow the instructions below to uninstall the application."
As explained in my initial post, I can't install the application again because it will not let me! It says it is already installed and that I need to uninstall it. Before I got your "resolution", I had already moved the icon into the Trash to "uninstall" which did not work. Which is why I'm here.
Any other suggestions?
By the way, both of those links supposedly show pics through the process, but all the images are replaced with "no image available".
Hey guys! I had the same problem as well and I've found the solution. Follow the instructions in the link below and it works for the 2017 version as well.
You basically need to remove the residual files related to AVG securities which is located in the preference, application support, cache files and elsewhere in the library section. You can ignore Step 1 in the link I think. Just search through all the files and anything that has avg in it, drag and drop it all in the trash bin. It may ask you to re-put your password in to this for some files but after you've dragged it all in the trash bin, empty the whole bin. This should work.
Whatever you do, do not install the macremover application. Just do everything manually.
