AVG Secure Search folder undelete-able?

Recommended Posts

Hello Malwarebytes Forums.


I've come to ask for help to remove the folder for AVG Secure Search. It is located in my Program Files (x86) folder under my C: drive.


I'm a full administrator of my computer and network yet attempts to remove this folder come up with a message telling me that access is denied and that I cannot delete it. I discovered this today while I've been cleaning up my harddrive of programs and files that I no longer use or need.


I have tried to use FileAssassin on it aswell, but unfortunately it won't let my select the entire file (enless I'm doing something incorrect?)


I would appreciate assistance with this ordeal. I do not want this useless file taking up space on my already cluttered harddrive.
