Sounds good. Let's do it. I'll give Avast a try.

By the way, I think I removed around 20-25 programs last night. I'm having trouble getting Canon Utilities Photostitch 3.1 out of my Add/Remove Programs listing. Would CCleaner help eliminate it, or do you know a way?

Timithos,
Try to do this entire sequence in one session if you can.
Don't do any unnecessary Internet surfing between the AVG removal and the Avast installation.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download the Avast Installer
Download the Avast! Free Installer from HERE: http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download .
When you click the Download button, You will get sent to a C-NET site having another Download button. Click it.
The download file is named avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
Save it to your desktop, but don't run it yet.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download the AVG Removal Tool from HERE
It is named avg_remover_stf_x86_2011_1322.exe
Save it to your desktop, but don't run it yet.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight this Entry, and choose Remove :

AVG 2012

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
-----------------------------------------------------------
Double click the AVG Removal tool avg_remover_stf_x86_2011_1322.exe on your Desktop to run it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine Again
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install Avast
Double Click the Avast Installer named avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe on your Desktop to run it.
Let it Install, Update itself and run a full scan.
Let it remove anything it finds.

Now you can delete both the AVG Remover and the Avast Installer from your desktop.
You should be good to go.
