If you go to control panel, uninstall program, then select it from the list and choose uninstall from the top and follow the prompts.

(I have foxit reader highlighted just to show you the uninstall button on top)

If you have any other questions please ask.

Hi, brightsun.

Please see this AVG FAQ: AVG Free - FAQ which indicates the following:
Quote:

Please download the current installation file of AVG from the Download section of our website, and run it to start the installation process.
The installation process recognizes the existence of installed AVG and the Add/Remove Components, Repair installation and Uninstall options are offered.
  • Please close your Internet browser.
  • Choose the "Repair installation" option.
  • On the next page uncheck the "Yes, I wish to install the AVG Security Toolbar" option.
  • Finish the installation wizard and update AVG.
This way the AVG Security Toolbar will be permanently uninstalled from your computer.

Are you trying to uninstall just the toolbar or all of AVG 9, If you just want to get rid of the toolbar see corrine's post above.

Hi, brightsun.

Did you see the instructions I posted above from AVG for removing the Toolbar? You won't be uninstalling AVG. Rather, you will select "Repair installation" and then you will UNCHECK the Toolbar.

I believe you may be using internet explorer as your web browser. To the left of the AVG toolbar is a "X" click on it, you will have a pop up with two options. Choose the second, the toolbar should disappear and not return.

When you install AVG it adds a yahoo toolbar, this can be deselected during installation or as I suggested above removed after installation.
