After a bit of an ordeal trying to remove AVG LinkScanner for Mac, heres a bit of help.

 

My trash started prompting me for my password whenever I placed an item in it after installing either AVG LinkScanner or MacKeeper, both of which i have now, at long last, successfully removed.

 

AVG Link scanner was an absolute nightmare to uninstall. Instead of simply dragging and dropping into the trash like every other application I’ve ever uninstalled, you have to use a separate uninstaller application. After spending 30 minutes on the phone to AVG customer support, who were actually very helpful, I was finally given a link to which I could download the uninstaller.

 

In the hope that this may save anyone else the headache it gave me, and the time wasted I'm going to supply the link below to which you can download the uninstaller for AVG LinkScanner if like me, you decide it's annoying and you don't actually want it.

 

To download the LinkScanner uninstaller for Mac OS X, please click on the link below:

Hope this helps.
