  1. As noted by the first comment, AVG Secure Browser disappeared from the list of installed apps when I “uninstalled” it yesterday (spoiler alert, it’s still here!)… in addition the result of following your tutorial on RUN commands was this:

    C:\Users\#\AppData\Local>rmdir /q /s %programdata%\avg\browser
    Access is denied.

    Any further suggestions?

    Thanks !

  2. If AVG antivirus software is as useless as this guide and as invasive as the avg browser Dup then it clearly is not acceptable for use.

  3. When I get to the list of installed software AVG Secure Browser does not show up, but it’s still on my machine.
