Default 2 Anti-Virus Programs Installed!

My mate installed Nod32 onto his computer without removing AVG! He thought he had removed it but obviously didn't. Now every time he restarts his computer, logs into his account..the Nod32 loading image comes up. Now normally it just goes away after about 10 seconds or so but it just stays there and he can't do anything..it's as if his computer has frozen.

I tried running it on safe mode but that just froze as well!

What should I do?? Thanks.

It would be best if you use the CD recovery to get to the command prompt and just delete the directory for the program. Or just disable the service. Take a look here at the link
