How to Remove the AVG pop-up adverts

1. Disable AVG self protection:
.... Right click the AVG icon in the taskbar. (near the clock)
.... Select to Temporarily Disable AVG Protection.
.... Agree the default timeout - usually 10 minutes.

2. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer and Navigate to: (Something like this - I have noticed that it changes)
.... C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG201x\ ...... for 32bit systems. (201x means 2013 or 2014)
.... C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AVG201x\ for 64bit systems.
.... C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AV\ for Windows 10 64bit systems.

3. Delete the following three folders: Awacs, Banners, Tuneup
.... Do not delete anything else you see inside the AVG201x folder.
.... If you accidentally delete anything else go to the recycle bin and restore it.
.... Note: If you have already paid for the Tuneup addon then keep this folder?

4. Close the My Computer/Explorer window.

5. Enable AVG self protection:
.... Right click the AVG icon in the taskbar. (near the clock)
.... Select to Enable AVG Protection - can take 20 seconds or so to fully activate.
