Somehow one of my children have installed Green AV on my PC without telling me... And since I am NOT a fan of using something I'm not familiar with I would like to get rid of it. Up to now I have tried the usual Control Panel, etc.... but it doesn't show up there.. It doesn't have an uninstaller so it just causes problems... tells me that I need to register it in order for it to work properly, otherwise it scans without my wanting it to... I just want GONE!!
I have been using successfully AVG up until this Green AV raised it's ugly head... Any suggestions other than ReFormatting...

Best bet is probably Malwarebytes for removal.

System Restore

Windows most likely created a restore point when this app got installed. Use Windows system restore to revert to pre-green state.

Green AV embeds itself in the restore directory

by SKDTech In reply to System Restore

Avast run in boot-time scan mode cleaned it up on a PC i worked on this past weekend. Malwarebytes is supposed to remove it as well. Open up the Task Manager and closes the processes associated with GreenAV before trying to install removal tools as it may prevent their installation or operation.

Step 1 kill the following processes

Step 2 delete following registry entries
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Green AV

Step 3 remove Green AV files from following locations
c:\Program Files\GAV
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GAV
