What is left after uninstalling avast & AVG?
« on: April 29, 2019, 10:22:58 AM »
You will find this file on your PC after uninstalling avast & AVG
C:\Program Files\Common Files\AVAST Software\Overseer\overseer.exe
C:\Program Files\Common Files\AVG\Overseer\overseer.exe

This file will connect google's DNS 8.8.8.8
Many thanks.
