This issue might have few different causes, for this reason this Security TIP sheet is divided into three steps.
Apply each step in order and check after each step to see if the problem has been resolved.
What happened here is you’ve visited AVG website to download free antivirus and ended up installing AVG IS with AVG Zen, which you’ve not expected or don’t want.
AVG hasn’t got their download pages right, even after 45 days later the release of their 2016 products.
For this reason they have developed a free tool called “Anti-Rootkit” that targets malware programs that are trying to block Malware Bytes.
Anti-Rootkit also recovers and re installs missing files when possible.
So don’t install AVG using web installer provided by the company, instead go for standalone installer, which is not installing Zen at the moment.
Visit the below links on Filehippo to download latest 32 or 64-bit of AVG free antivirus.
Does AVG installation freezes every time you try to run it?Update: Let me re clarify as I’ve mentioned about AVG Protection, which indeed is the antivirus program component right now.So you shouldn’t be removing that, but you can of AVG Zen. UPDATE 1: AVG is forcing is Zen upon us, they’ve removed the offline installer from their download page, which I’ve mentioned above and included Zen with Online installer.Zen users can still able to manage subscription and install other AVG products from the My AVG menu available in the AVG main window.For more information, read AVG Free Antivirus 17.9 : Avast Removes Zen May 9, 2017 Update: It’s not possible to install AVG Free Antivirus 2017 without zen even though offline installer is available.
