Second method, I used Mac's Finder

So I was reinstalling AVG Internet security on my Mac, and I encounter little bit trouble.

Uninstallation went well with out any error message, but after that I just couldn't reinstall the software anymore.

Reply message from AVG:
Thank you for providing the screenshots.

We are sorry to know that you are unable to install AVG Antivirus on your Mac. I believe that the uninstallation of AVG Antivirus didn't go through completely.

We request you to remove the AVG Antivirus traces manually by getting to this path: Library/Application Support/AVGAntivirus/

Once it is removed, restart your Mac and install AVG Antivirus as mentioned in this article Installing AVG AntiVirus and AVG Internet Security on Mac

If these instructions didn't resolve your issue, you can start the remote connection at your convenience, the service is available 24/7. You will be able to watch the progress and chat with the technician until the issue is resolved to your satisfaction.

  1. Visit the AVG Remote Support website.
  2. Fill in the short form. Your Case number is available in the subject of this e-mail.

First I try to erase the left over file/folder from Mac's Terminal, but...

Mac Terminal
Command:     ls    -list file/directory
                       cd - change directory

Mac Terminal

Some reason I cannot get into Application Support, so I give up; yes, I'm a quitter.

Second method, I used Mac's Finder
This worked out, I was abled to remove remaining file/folders.

Yes, there's leftover AVGAntivirus folder!  Just erase that leftover folder.  That's it.
