The first thing long time AVG users will notice is the revamped interface. Gone is the more clunky yet still functional design of last year. In its place, we have a new tiled interface that will seamlessly blend in with Windows 8 upon its release later this year. The design is simple, straightforward and easy to understand. It also has all the options you would expect from a fully featured Internet security suite...

Do NOT install AVG PC Tuneup. This product is defective and can harm your Windows installation!

I updated to the latest AVG antivirus 2013 having used it for several years without problems. Unfortunately it also installed a demo version of AVG PC TuneUp that kept poping up a window saying my installation had problems and I should purchase AVG PC TuneUp. In a fit of insanity, I did so and have regretted it ever since. During the installation, AVG PC TuneUp crashed my Windows 7 and and when I rebooted I could not start Windows. I had to do a Windows repair, going back to my last Windows update. Even now I get a popup that says:

The installation of this AVG product is defective. Please install the AVG product again to correct the problem.

I have tried uninstalling AVG PC TuneUp and was told the product was defective.
I have tried re-installing AVG antivirus 2013.
I have tried using the removal tools as directed at http://www.avg.com/us-en/installer-issu ... YXI9MHw%3D

Guess what? I still get the popup saying the AVG product is defective.

I agree with AVG. Their product IS defective.
