AVG 7.5 is no longer supported you would do better installing AVAst 4 instead

It's always best to check the download for any possible issues.

I have been trying all sorts to uninstall AVG 7.5 so as to use Avast but it just cannot be done. This is what I get{-
Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for file setup.exe: creating backup....
Access is denied. (5) %DESTINATION% = "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\setup.exe.install_backup", %SOURCE% = "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\setup.exe"

How do I take off 'Access denied please
Maybe that could help ?

Have you tried using the AVG Removal Tool as suggested by provider 2 - it's the top program in the link.
