    HOW-TO remove AVG Anivirus

    Have you downloaded and installed AVG as the avg75fld-r45-a0973.i386.deb file following this how-to or perhaps another? If it does not work the way expected, or you just don't like it, uninstalling it with the following command gives en error:
    sudo dpkg -P (or -r) avg75fld

    (Reading database ... 131758 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing avg75fld ...
    * Stopping avgdkill: 246: Illegal number: -
    local: 246: 4183: bad variable name
    ( not running)
    * [fail]
    invoke-rc.d: initscript avgd, action "stop" failed.
    dpkg: error processing avg75fld (--remove):
    subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 150
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    avg75fld
    Try the following now:
    sudo dpkg -R -P avg75fld
    Then remove the leftovers in /opt/grisoft

    sudo rm -r /opt/grisoft

    For avg 8.5 as latest (afaik) when reading 8.Januar.2010 (happy new year by the way) use the following command:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -R -P avg85flx

    Hey, thanks for updating this. I haven't used AVG on Ubuntu for quite some time.

    Can anyone post how you do this for AVG 2013, because simply replacing 2011flx with 2013flx doesn't work. (I use Lubuntu btw).

    This thread is not about installing or replacing, but rather about removing, and removing avg2013flx seems to work as well as before.
    Code:
    ~$ sudo dpkg -P -R avg2013flx
    (Reading database ... 148706 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing avg2013flx ...
