Cannot get rid of trial application: AVG PC tune-up 2014

I loaded a trial version of AVG PC tune-up, and then decided NOT to continue with the trial. However, I cant delete the application, and every day it tells me that I have not subscribed, etc.

Plenty people are complaining of a similar problem on the web plus no response from AVG.

Can you advise me how to delete this app?

Thanks,
Kelvin4

If AVG support will not help you, you can try Revo Uninstaller. I have used this for stubborn uninstalls, although I prefer Programs and Features.

Try the util at the bottom of this page http://forums.avg.com/us-en/avg-forums?sec=thread&act=show&id=239003

It is called  AVG PC TuneUp & TuneUp Utilities Remover

The direct link to it is http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/TuneUp_Remover.exe

beside the link by @dbrunton, you can remove it manually:
delete the tuneup folder in the program files
go to regedit and search for entries (tuneup) and remove them
go to MSCONFIG and remove any startup entries for tuneup

Many thanks.  I chose dbrunton's solution first and it appears to have worked.

In contrast to Windows7/ControlPanel/Programs and Features/Uninstall program, dbrunton's solution deleted the "AVG PC TuneUp 2014" folder from Windows7/ControlPanel/Programs and Features directory.

However, I wrote that the solution 'appears to have worked' because the re-appearance of the AVG 'You need to subscribe' notice was itself unpredictable, occurring on average once per day, but not at a set event, like PC Start-Up.  

So, to keep the story straight for other EE-users, I'll sign off points on Tuesday pm.
I trust that's agreeable. Points will not depend on which solution I tried first!

Thanks a lot

Thank you, all:
I've heard no more from the AVG evaluation program, and so confirm success.

Somewhat more points for the early responses and for off-the-shelf solutions.
