How to remove AVG 8 completely to install Kaspersky


Kaspersky-Incompatible-Software-Installation

When installing Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) and Kaspersky Anti-Virus(KAV), do you see this error:
“Attention! Some incompatible software is installed on your computer. These applications cannot be used together with Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. In order to proceed with the installation, remove these applications.”
This Incompatible Software window will show during the setup process wizard. It will stop and prevent the installtion of Kaspersky product. AVG 8 is the most common listed application.

Symptoms:
You have uninstall AVG 8 program but Kaspersky wizard setup still detect AVG.

You have try using Registry Mechanic, Registry Booster, Your Uninstaller, CCleaner and more but still no luck to remove the AVG 8. Still can not install Kaspersky.

How to fix:

This is the screen that KIS gives you if AVG was installed before in you computer.

With some steps inside the regedit we were able to fix this.

1. Go to Start > Run.

2. Type regedit and click OK.


3. Navigate and delete his following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall
