Sounds like the uninstall did not complete properly. As noted try Revo
Uninstaller. There may also be an AVG Removal Tool, but I'm not sure -
check the developer's website.

Hi kizzysmum-
Yep, freeforum.avg.com is the way to go. Be sure to enter all the inf
they ask for or the first reply will be that you didn't give all th
info.....and waste your time. If you have v8 free, the biggest proble
lately is an "Invalid Update Control CTF File". There is a fix, chec
out Big Al 43's sticky posted 10/30/08, with a link to FAQ#1567. Sav
this, as you'll need it again! (Of course, this will be after you
successfull re-installation of AVGF8.)
It'll all be OK....
