Can't get rid of AVG+Mcafee appeared from nowhere?

Hi, I recently spruced up a friend's laptop, uninstalled AVG and McAfee and installed Avast. He gave me his laptop back being as AVG and McAfee had both appeared again, aswell as the original Avast. I have used Revo to erase/uninstall McAfee but AVG is still running but doesn't appear in the Revo list of programs.

Please can anyone tell me how to uninstall AVG? And maybe tell me why both appeared again? Thank you.

PS

Antivirus and antispyware programs are designed to see attempts at uninstalling / removal as attacks and therefore can only be removed properly using their own removal tools.
