    AVG 8 update / uninstall problems

    I was not able to update AVG 8 Free, it gives me an error message saying "General error, not enough free memory, write error". While i was looking after a fix for this in other forum i came across one mentioning that he was able to fix this error by uninstalling and reinstalling AVG . So now when i am trying to uninstall AVG 8 than i get below error:
    "Local machine: installation failed.

    Installation:
    Error: Action failed for file avgemc.exe creating backup
    Error: 0x8007000Z %DESTINATION% - "C:\Program Files \ AVG \ AVG8 \
    avgemc.exe.install_backup_l",
    %SOURCE% - "C:\Program Files \ AVG \ AVG8 \ avgemc.exe"

    Is there anything i can do about it???

    In that case i will suggest you to uninstall it using CCleaner , i have been using it for uninstalling such programs and i haven't faced any issue yet. It is capable of cleaning left overs, temp files and Registry as well, best of luck.

    Why dont you just use AVG uninstaller?? You can download it from avg official site. I think that it will be best uninstaller for dealing with AVG products.

    A better idea will be uninstalling AVG 8 and installing avast. I have had several issue with AVG 8. There are number of threads in this forum itself where people have raised update issue with AVG . You can just check out below one:

    Get Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, it is even better than avast, it is capable of detecting and removing malware which doesn't even gets recognized by known anti-virus and anti-malware applications. Even i have used AVG 8, i did not had issue in installing it updates but i found it to be more resource hungry, it used to eat up system resources while carrying out scan. I dont see same response with Malwarebytes. It's quite light and works great.
