    How Do I UNinstall AVG Free?
    I'm running LION. I called the AVG Tech Support, asking how I could uninstall it and the guy told me to "just drag avg.app to your trash." Which I did, but some of the old AVG crap still pops up now and then.

    How can I uninstall all of its other pieces? Thank you for your help.

    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    Download it again and see if an uninstaller is contained within the download. You may have to install and then run the uninstaller.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    You should call AVG tech support back and tell them about the lousy and incorrect advice you got from their rep.
