Remove AVG 2012 Desktop Icon After Install

This question is answered

Is there an option to not add an AVG 2012 icon to the desktop after installation?

I know I can write a simple script to delete it after the install, but I wanted to check if I was missing a setting somewhere to remove it.

Thanks.

  • Eli,

    As noted in the release notes for KES 2.3, AVG has removed the option to hide the desktop icon, tray icon, and start menu entries.  Because of this, the option to password protect the KES settings has been added via the KES Profile.

  • Travis,

    Thanks for your help.  I was able to make a simple script to delete it from the all users profile after install.  That took care of the problem for me.

  • Hi eperson,

    can you share your script?

    Thanks Richard

  • Richard,

    You just need to delete %allusersprofile%\desktop\AVG 2012.lnk on XP and %public%\Desktop\AVG 2012.lnk on Vista/7

  • thanks eperson, we already have made it.
