Removal/uninstall of AVG Antivirus fails

I was recently helping a friend install Mcafee Total Protection Antivirus on their computer.  As many people know, Antivirus software from one company is not compatible with another company's antivirus solution.

So, of course, Mcafee Total Protection attempted to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system.  Unfortunately, at the end of the uninstall process, AVG displayed an error message that it could not be removed!!

Well, after several attempts to uninstall it from the machine, we did a quick Google search and found out that this is a common issue for many users and it is readily solved by running a Removal tool that AVG provides directly from their website: http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities

After running the AVG Remover tool, I was able to successfully remove AVG Antivirus from the system and install Mcafee Total Protection!
