    Both this Windows 7 Desktop and my Windows 10 laptop take ages to start up because I can see the delays are caused by AVG installed. Also MalwareBytes installed on both claim any additional antivirus is not needed. Therefore I propose to uninstall AVG on both before the subscription is needed to be renewed. But some URLs claim you can just use Add Remove in the control panel to uninstall AVG. Another URL asks for my AVG licence before perhaps emailing a removal tool. I do in fact have an older removal.

    Which method do you suggest I use to uninstall AVG? Perhaps asking for my AVG license is to enable AVG to pester me why I want to uninstall it! Is it safe to simply use the older Removal EXE I have had for a year or two?
