I installed AVG virus protection and since then It doesn't let me save certain picture formats and Doesn't let me copy anything to my desktop. It doesn't Uninstall either. How do I get rid of it?

A few questions:

  • Did you get avg from the official site? (
  • What operating system are you using?
  • Do you have administrator rights
  • Can you revert to a restore point that was made at the beginning of the install?

As for a fix... try that last thing...

it does sound like a bad copy of avg if you were to ask me... – mjrider Jun 9 '11 at 1:23

if you are using Windows, use Windows System Restore, pick a restore date before you installed AVG.

Or download and run the AVG Remover tool from this page, be sure to pick the correct one for your bit version of Windows, 32bit Windows or 64bit Windows.
