Re: Vista vs AVG Free
It's a known problem with AVG. Re-download the file, go to install it, but
stop when it gives you the name and key#. Copy that, paste it into a notepad
file. Restart, and when AVG comes up with the register prompt, you can click
register and enter in the name & key from the notepad file. That should get
it registered. Other than that, it seems to be a PITA to get it removed
correctly.

Re: Vista vs AVG Free
Had the same problem when trying to remove AVG professional. Vista may tell
you it can't be deleted, but the old DOS box isn't that particular...

Re: Vista vs AVG Free
I recently removed my avg free version and added my avg pro version and had
no problems with either of them during the install or the uninstall. I am
running Vista Home Premium with 2gb ram with the aero features disabled.
