Problem Uninstalling Trend Micro and Installing AVG 2012

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I am trying to uninstall the Trend Micro on my computer because my license has expired, and I am not renewing my subscription at the moment. I went to Control Panel to uninstall the program. After it was uninstalled, the computer prompted me to restart it which I did for 3 times.

However, it still has not been uninstalled successfully. I tried to uninstall the program through the Programs menu on Start but then again, it was unsuccessful. 

I know it is not a problem with the application because I had uninstalled the same program on another computer without any problem. So I decided to just install the AVG 2012 Free version, but it was still unable to install.

Now I am stuck with an unregistered version of Trend Micro which has limited functionalities and I cannot install the free version of AVG 2012. Any suggestion to make both the removal of the Trend Micro and installation of the AVG possible would be appreciated.

Installing Avg:
If you are trying to install the AVG Internet Security 2012 after logged in as the local user,
I suggest you to try to install the AVG Internet Security 2012 after logging in as administrator and after that check whether you are getting the error while installing the AVG or not.
