I have to do the same with two extensions, so I searched and found this article. Have not tried it myself yet because I'am at work right now. Will try later.

If the remove or uninstall button and menu item are disabled, the add-on is locked. To uninstall a locked add-on, you'll first have to unlock it via Safe Mode.
If the add-on repeatedly shows "This item will be uninstalled after you restart Firefox" even after restarting, either create a new profile or try uninstalling manually (see below).

Full article at this link: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_extensions

The "Corrupt Extension File" and "Uninstalling manually" section may help also.

Let's get rid of these extension!!

Good luck.

Take a look at Sysinternals' Autoruns. IF AVG entries show up, they can be terminated.

not sure if this will do it but worth a try.

go to your users folder, click organise and select "folder and search options"
click the view tab and check the show hidden files,folders and drives.
you can re hide them after.

once you have the hidden folders on view, then you can see the appadata folder in your users folder,
go to roaming/mozilla/firefox/profiles /extensions.

see if the avg extensions are showing and remove them by cut and paste, to another location of your choice, the reason i suggest cutting them is that they can be put back if it causes a problem removing them.

do this with firefox closed.
then check to see if they are gone from your extensions list in firefox.

if not then replace the files you cut and we can try another method
