Hi,

If you are getting errors during the uninstallation of the  AVG 8.0 software from your computer, then I would suggest that you use the AVG Remover utility, it removes all parts of AVG installation on your computer, including registry items, installation and user files on your disk, etc. AVG Remover is the least option to be used in case the AVG uninstallation / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.

Please visit the below link for downloading the utility:
