May 9, 2017 Update: It’s not possible to install AVG Free Antivirus 2017 without zen even though offline installer is available.
When I tried to change from AVG, undelete via all Microsoft modes did not work.
System resources were used at a high level, all attributed to AVG programs.
For example, while running AVG, a popup appeared stating that my drivers were out of date, 9 were downloaded and it crashed the computer.
Safe known files were quarantined, it was an impossible task to avoid this, could not add the URL or file and could not turn off AVG at all.
So you shouldn’t be removing that, but you can of AVG Zen. UPDATE 1: AVG is forcing is Zen upon us, they’ve removed the offline installer from their download page, which I’ve mentioned above and included Zen with Online installer.
So don’t install AVG using web installer provided by the company, instead go for standalone installer, which is not installing Zen at the moment.
But problems can happen: the download getting stuck, the update refusing to install, or the system being caught up in a restart loop.
Error messages for failed updates are rarely helpful, which means it can be hard to find a specific solution.
So as for ZEN we are now apparently married (catholic style) so no divorce on the cards and we didn't even have a prenup! This is the first forum I have ever joined, that shows how angry I am and I opted for the US edition so hopefully a wider audience? I was very good and I didn't use any curse words it's sooo unbelievable. Forgot to mention, get your software from https://ninite.com/ that way you don't get any "extras". Hi Yes obviously that was my first port of call but as Tech guy said as well it will not remove ZEN. Zen is a 14 day trial and you have to work hard to find the installer without Zen.
