How can I revert from a trial version of AVG Antivirus back to the free version?

Judith Hand May 23, 2012

I had a free trial of AVG anti-virus and went along with an offer of a 30 day trial AVG Internet Security 2012. How do I get rid of the latter and get back the free trial without losing protection? I’m not well-versed in computer and can’t afford to screw up the transition. Feel free to spell it out for me. Thanks!

    If you go into the control panel and try to uninstall it, it will then ask if you'd like to switch to basic.

      Thank you; that's even better. Fortunately (or unfortunately) the computer I was on had a jack break, so I'm on a loaner that automatically came with the free version of AVG. I'll keep this in mind for whichever I get in November sometime.

    Thank you; that's easier than I thought and a relief!

    If you do not enter a valid activation code, after the trial period it will automatically revert to the free version. You don't need to do anything at all.
