    Hello all, I have been trying to download the free AVG antivirus 8.0 but I can't because I have Ewido Anti Spyware on my computer. I tried to delete this but it won't let me it says Access denied. Make sure disc is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.
    I went and tried to delete cookies but I don't think that worked either. Is there anyone out there who can help me with this.

    Did you use the ewido or AVG Anti-Spyware Software in the past?
    For the case you used the ewido Software, please check in your program files folder for the ewido installation folder. Default path is (Example here for english Version of Windows):
    C:\program files\ewido anti-spyware 4.0
    older ewido Versions have other Installations folders, e.g:
    C:\program files\ewido anti-malware

    For the case you used AVG Anti-Spyware, then please locate the installation folder of AVG Anti-Spyware in your program files folder:
    C:\program files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
    and then run there the uninstall.exe file to start the uninstallation of the Software, if you deleted manually the Folders and files, but you still get Errors during the Installation of AVG 8, please follow there steps:

    If you want to uninstall the ewido Software:

    - Download the Setup for the ewido Anti-Spyware Version 4 from this website:
    http://filehippo.com/download_avg_antispyware/1331/

    - Run the downloaded installer and install the ewido Software on your System

    - Restart Windows.

    - After the restart and if there are any open ewido Windows or System Tray Icons, please close them.

    - Now locate the installation folder of the ewido Software in your program files folder (C:\program files\ewido anti-spyware) and run the uninstall.exe file to start the uninstallation process.

    - Now restart Windows again.

    --------------------------------------------

    If you want to uninstall the AVG Anti-Spyware Software:

    The same steps, but instead of downloading and installing the ewido Software, you have to download and install the AVG Anti-Spyware Software from an other URL:
